CAPE TOWN, MAY 2016 – Aspen International has concluded a joint venture with bulk transport company Van den Bosch. With this joint venture two new sites have been opened: one in Cape Town and one in Dubai.
Aspen International will offer a full range of transport solutions to and from the South African market from the strategic hubs in Cape Town and Dubai. The main focus is on shipping liquid bulk products (food as well as chemicals) in tank containers in cooperation with Van den Bosch DMCC in Dubai. Moreover, the business includes shipping liquid bulk products in flexitanks, palletised dry goods in 6m and 12m general purpose containers, as well as perishable goods in reefer tanks and containers.
The name of the new company will be Aspen International. “A deliberate choice”, Director Peter van den Bosch of Van den Bosch explains. “Aspen International has built up a good reputation in the reefer market in South Africa, providing an outsourced logistic solution, including freight forwarding. With the new hubs in Cape Town and Dubai, we want to build on the solid base which owner Gary van Niekerk and his partners have built over the past 18 years.”
