ECS and 2XL form one European logistics group
The logistics companies ECS European Containers and 2XL have reached an agreement to join forces and form one European logistics group. The exclusive talks between the two family-owned companies started one month ago. During the negotiations they came to the agreement that 2XL will be integrated in the ECS European Containers Group. This results in a European Logistics Group which will offer complet services for intermodal transport, warehousing and sustainable logistic solutions for the integrated supply chain. The new group will achieve a turnover of over 400 million euros and employ more than 1.000people, half of which in the Benelux and the rest spread over a dozen offices in Europe.
ECS European Containers and 2XL, both having Belgian roots, are complementary players in the European Logistics field. ECS focuses on pallet transport by standardized full containers to and from Great Britain, Ireland and the European mainland. 2XL thrives in warehousing and integrated logistics services for companies active in the EU and Great Britain.
ECS European Containers acquires all of 2XL’s shares.
