In line with the continuous development, diversification and specialisation of the Alonso Group‘s forwarding division, the holding company has promoted the creation of the Oper Reefer Forwarding brand. Specialized in land, sea and air refrigeration logistics, it will provide national and international coverage to importing and exporting clients.

Oper Reefer Forwarding has its base in Algeciras where Alonso Group has a multimodal logistics platform of more than 120,000 square meters, SAM Algeciras. The facilities are characterized, among other services, by having reference refrigerated warehouses in the south of the Iberian Peninsula with 11 bitémperas cameras, more than 7,800 pallets capacity and equipped with the latest technologies. SAM Algeciras is located just over a kilometre from the Andalusian port, the fourth most important in Europe, which in 2018 managed to exceed 100 million tonnes of goods.

The new company was created by a team of highly qualified professionals in the shipping sector. At the head of them is Sonia Maillo, a professional with more than 25 years of experience in the freight forwarding sector and extensive knowledge of the functioning of international trade.

The added value of being part of Alonso Group

Oper Reefer Forwarding, as an Alonso Group company, will have the differential value of being able to take advantage of synergies with other companies in the holding. In this way, from the start, the new firm will have the support of all the links in the logistics chain already covered by Alonso Group (warehouses, shipping lines, land transport, among others).

The management of Alonso Group considers the creation of this new firm to be a key element in further promoting the development of the forwarding division specialised in cold logistics, both nationally and internationally.

The forwarding division, headed by the Alonso Forwarding Holding brand, coordinates this area of the group in order to offer a high level of innovation, competitiveness, trust and quality to customers and suppliers.

Currently, Alonso Group is a multisectorial Spanish holding company of reference in the national and international markets. Formed by more than a hundred companies with activity in seven different business areas and more than 50 years of experience.
