Their expertise as well as the cooperation spirit of the team will help us to position Netherlands as a strategic gateway for our export and import services. YCC will help our growth strategy and certainly bring value for our customers and shareholders”.
"This cooperation offers great opportunities," says Mark Lases, CEO of Your Cargo Contact. "Not only will we get access to a broader market, it also offers many opportunities on a commercial level.
