Lauritzen Cool Logistics (LCL) is continuing its global expansion with the launch of a new Egyptian reefer service, LCL Egypt.

LCL is a subsidiary of international reefer specialist NYKLauritzenCool and is embarking on the new Egyptian service as part of a joint operation between its regional holding company, LCL Mediterranean, and Egyptian-French shipping agency WORMS A.C.S.

It will have offices throughout Egypt, with headquarters based in Alexandria, and will offer a combination of local presence, staff experience and expertise, together with the support of the LCL worldwide office networks, connections, and overall expertise, the company said.

As part of its service, it will connect exporters or importers of perishable and reefer cargo with customers and suppliers in Europe, the Mediterranean, North, Central and South America, Southern Africa, and the Far East.

It will also provide all required pre or post-shipment logistic services from production site to point of delivery to the receiver, such as trucking, gensets, and clearing. Its inland distribution network in Europe and USA will also offer trucking, cross docking, groupage and distribution services to receivers all over Europe and North America.

“The expertise and know how accumulated within LCL and its parent companies during decades of reefer market leadership in areas like cargo quality control, cargo handling techniques, refrigeration technology, in transit cold treatment and controlled atmosphere are cornerstones in the service concept offered by the LCL offices,” a statement said.
