Wagenborg Projects & Logistics recently is positioned as a separate division within Royal Wagenborg. What started in 1998 as the service-provider for project freights under the flag of the Wagenborg Shipping division, now broadens the logistical scope offering Supply Chain Management and Project Freight Forwarding solutions. This new positioning is reflected in our vision. At Wagenborg Projects & Logistics we offer complete logistical solutions and solve even the toughest transport challenges by understanding our customers and their total supply chain.

Project Freight Forwarding

The first service entails the transport of project cargo and oversized equipment. The primary task is to provide door-to-door solutions for project freights, where often one or more divisions of Royal Wagenborg are involved. Unlike all the other Wagenborg Divisions  that provide logistic solutions, WPL does not possess assets; it acts on behalf of more divisions and makes use of Wagenborg resources or those of reliable partners. In addition, worldwide transport of project cargo can be realized by making quick and efficient links between Wagenborg’s widespread own resources and external partners, making the project freight forwarding activities of WPL efficient, flexible, and reliable. Understanding our clients is important, therefore we focus on the following industries within the project freight forwarding services: oil & gas, energy, technology and construction & engineering. Wagenborg has many years of experience in these industries and therefore is able to provide our clients with the most suitable solution.

Supply Chain Management

Besides the project related cargo, the new service of WPL is offering total supply chain management (SCM) solutions. With SCM we mean managing the goods of the total supply chain from assembly to the end destination, since the transport of goods does not just stop in each port or warehouse. Therefore WPL integrates the services on both land and water to offer our clients a full package of logistic services with Wagenborg’s own resources and skilled and experienced people or via a reliable partner of Wagenborg. The central idea behind SCM is to offer existing and potential clients more transport solutions than solely the current activities of Wagenborg perform. This will result in a more efficient flow of transporting goods. With the growing focus on forwarding activities, WPL can design the perfect mix between our own assets and that of our partners, making the transport the most cost efficient and reliable for our customers. The service can best be described by the figure below. WPL combines the intermodal solutions (road & rail transport), together with sea freight, warehousing, stevedoring and customs and insurance. Thereby focusing on our selected industries: Automotive, Retail, Forest Products, Industrial Products and Hygiene Products.

Supply Chain Management WPL

With the new strategy and positioning of Wagenborg Projects & Logistics we not only combine the strength of the Wagenborg divisions but also our knowledge for every transport. In other words: for every project, freight or transport you only need one point of contact: Wagenborg Projects and Logistics.
