Morocco, with a population of around 36 million inhabitants and located in the far north of the Maghreb, is the latest destination for the new Alonso Group branch. Under the name of Alonso Forwarding Morocco, the office is located in Casablanca, one of the most important economic and port hubs in the country.

Alonso Forwarding Morocco offers all types of logistics services, including 3PL activities. It works especially in the area of maritime transport, with all types of FCL (full container loads) and LCL (consolidation). The new branch will also promote exchanges via land transport between Morocco, Iberian Peninsula (Spain-Portugal) and the rest of Europe for groupage, LCL and full truck loads (FTL). In short, they offer high quality services to promote exchanges with the neighbouring country to the south which, in recent times, has seen its trade relations with Spain strengthened.

The new branch is made up of professionals with extensive experience in supply chain management and in-depth knowledge of the functioning of the Maghreb markets. ‘We want to offer solutions with regular connections between the whole of Europe and Morocco. In addition to supporting our logistics division to become a reference in Spain in the road service with the African country,’ Alonso Forwarding Morocco emphasises. A team that is already working on setting up what will be its second office in the country, located in Tangiers.

Reinforcement of the Alonso Group’s international structure

With the opening of the Alonso Forwarding Morocco office, Alonso Group continues to expand its strong international structure with locations in the most important points of global trade. In the case of the Maghreb, in addition to the recent opening, it already has offices in Algeria (Alonso Forwarding Asamar Algerie) and Tunisia (Alonso Forwarding Tunis), in addition to its strong presence in Asia, North America, Central America, South America and Europe.

Morocco, maritime power and example of nearshoring

In recent years, Morocco has begun to invest heavily in maritime infrastructure (such as the expansion of the port of Tangier Med) and rail infrastructure with the expansion of its high-speed rail network (Tangier-Marrakech and Agadir, which is currently underway). In addition, the construction sector continues to grow, especially in infrastructure to co-host the Football World Cup to be held in the country, together with Spain and Portugal, in 2030.

It is also an example of nearshoring, i.e. hosting the production of goods from geographically close countries, which opt for this type of region instead of more distant locations. A strategy that reduces transport costs, ensures shorter delivery times and greater cultural or time compatibility.
