Pentagon Freight Services and TLC SA Transportation Logistic Consulting have formed a strategic alliance that will allow the companies to pool their combined resources.

As a result, both Pentagon Freight and TLC will gain representation in countries where they do not currently have a presence. 

Switzerland-headquartered TLC is represented in over 12 countries, including key regions in Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Pentagon Freight has 71 offices around the world, with experience in serving the energy and resource sectors.

Ashley Taylor, ceo of Pentagon Freight, said: “We are very excited to be working with a company as experienced and respected as TLC. Their total commitment to compliance and bespoke customer solutions is particularly impressive.

“Their offices in strategically important locations in Africa and new ‘hotspots’ in the Caribbean and South America allow us to extend our high quality of service directly to these regions, while simultaneously taking advantage of the wealth of expertise they have in dealing directly with the complex logistics scenarios that can arise at destination.”

Philippe Masserey, ceo of TLC, added: “We can now offer our customers significantly wider market coverage, along with a seamless end-to-end service, cemented with fully integrated IT systems.”
