Our history in freight forwarding goes back to 1991 when Groupair was founded at Schiphol Airport. Through hard working, great passion for the business and a keen eye for new opportunities and solutions, Groupair evolved rapidly and became a very successful pioneer in neutral freight forwarding.
In 1997, Groupair had its European expansion with an office in Brussels airport, the capital of Europe. The strategic position of the locations, close to Europe's largest seaports Antwerp and Rotterdam, made Groupair an important transportation hub centrally situated in Western Europe, where supplies of goods from all over the world are gathered together before being sent on again. The innovative logistics development, favorable customs regulations and screening procedures makes the region particularly appealing as a base for many European distribution centers.
In 2013, Groupair became part of Saco Shipping and continued the airfreight activities under the flag of Saco Groupair. We became stronger and better equipped to create competitive neutral airfreight solutions without losing the so valued flexibility and customer centricity of the smaller and midsize forwarder.
Own warehouses with modern Safety and Security facilities combined with a road feeder services out of any origin in Europe, enables us to provide customized and personalized neutral airfreight services from any point of Europe to worldwide destinations. We enable small and midsize forwarders to create a virtual one-stop-shop with our experience and creativity as neutral airfreight partner.
