DSV has awarded WFS a long-term European Gateway cargo handling contract in Liege, Belgium, extending their growing global partnership.

WFS, which already provides air logistics services for DSV in Amsterdam and at Huntsville International Airport in Alabama, is operating DSV’s hub facility in Liege, providing warehouse handling of cargo carried onboard DSV’s all-cargo charters and commercial freighter services by multiple airline partners.

Supported by WFS’ direct airside access and ramp services, the DSV Liege Gateway consolidates and deconsolidates cargo for all European DSV entities to and from the company’s 15 most used trade lanes, including Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Dubai, and New York JFK.

As well as general cargo, the hub will be developed for special cargoes, including pharmaceuticals and perishables. The Liege operation will complement the successful DSV Gateway hub in Luxembourg and sees WFS take responsibility for import and export cargoes utilising capacity booked by DSV through Liege and on flights connecting through other surrounding airports.

“I am thrilled to announce our new strategic partnership with WFS. This collaboration supports DSV’s commitment to providing seamless, efficient, and sustainable logistics solutions, and it showcases our ability to foster strong relationships within the industry. Together, DSV and WFS are committed to enhancing the customer experience through excellent service and by driving innovation within the airfreight and ground-handling sectors. We believe this partnership will pave the way for a more connected future in global logistics,” says Mo Siraj, VP Airfreight EU and Managing Director DSV Air & Sea LUX.

“This long-term contract is a result of our successful partnership in Amsterdam and Huntsville, where DSV has teamed up with WFS for all-cargo handling. This relationship is strategically very important to WFS because it showcases the services and value we bring right to the centre of the air logistics supply chain. By partnering with WFS in Liege, DSV is benefitting from cost and time efficiencies at one of Europe’s biggest full freighter airports,” said Bert Selis, VP Business Development, E-commerce, Express & Freight Forwarders EMEAA at WFS, who is based in Belgium.

In Liege WFS operates 25.000m² of warehouse space, split over 2 facilities, and handles approximately 200,000 tonnes of cargo annually.
