Logistics Industry’s Potential
Logistics companies in SAFICO Holding’s portfolio have been in the industry for over 20 years, Sallaum Group SA being the oldest one. They’re now a target of all the forces currently shaping and shaking the industry, most notably digitalization, software-driven changes in logistics processes, and increased customer demand for cheaper and faster service without compromises in quality.
Despite their disruptive nature, smart logistics companies - Sallaum Group included - welcome those forces and expect them to make their businesses simpler, more automated, and more profitable.
Sallaum Group has begun investing in modern technologies as soon as they became available. Moreover, given that SAFICO has acquired a company which makes logistics software technology, Sallaum Group now has direct access to the latest software solutions. One of the biggest advantages of this access is the ability to have key technologies shaped according to the company’s own needs.
Company managers have 35 years of in-depth experience in organizing smooth export and shipping of used vehicles via land and sea.
