Galgo opens new European headquarters
Galgo has opened new European headquarters (including warehousing and offices) in order to expand the company’s retreading coverage and sales presence. This expansion takes the company from Tongeren to the Ghent-Antwerp-Brussels triangle in Belgium, close to inland Beverdonk and the Meerhout container terminal. Located 40 minutes and 50 km from the port of Antwerp, the warehouse built in 2013 features ISO 9011-2008 certified facilities and includes a 10,000 square meter space with a 7,000-pallet storage capacity, and 16 loading docks which operate 24 hours a day.
According to the company, the benefits of this expansion to the retreading market include: deliveries of orders throughout Europe in two to five business days, providing a strategic logistics location, value added logistics, improved customer service, upgraded stock management and flexible working hours.
