GEODIS’ Brazil to Exhibit at Intermodal South America

GEODIS Brazil will be exhibiting at this year’s Intermodal South America at the Transamerica Expo Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil, from Tuesday, 5th until Thursday, 7th April 2016.

“GEODIS remains committed to Latin America, despite the recent economic trends and worsening situation in Brazil” said Chris Cahill, Managing Director Geodis Brazil. “GEODIS has successfully grown its business throughout this period by providing extremely high service quality with market competitive pricing.”

GEODIS has over 30 years of operational expertise in Brazil; with its headquarters in San Paulo and a further seven offices in other cities across the country, it offers its customers a full range of services in logistics, storage, customs clearance, freight forwarding, reverse logistics and industrial projects.

Recently GEODIS Brazil invested in a new 40,000m2 logistics distribution facility at Jundiai, near Sao Paulo, which is now processing on behalf of its clients more than 15,000 orders per day. The general warehousing facility has expanded the scope for new business and this means that GEODIS Brazil can now offer warehouse and distribution services to clients without them having to establish their own branches at the warehouse. In 2016, GEODIS plans to further invest in its infrastructure in Brazil to continue to expand our coverage and quality services for existing and potential clients.

Despite the challenging market context in Brazil, the entire region remains one of the fastest growing areas for logistics, cargo transportation and foreign trade. More than 48,000 qualified professionals will visit Intermodal South America during its three days duration. More than 600 companies representing 26 countries will be exhibiting at this major international trade fair thereby making this a significant event for networking with key players in the industry.

Isis Communications Rebrands as Portcare International

portcareLogo

The marketing and media communications consultancy specialising in the maritime, freight transport and logistics sectors has rebranded as Portcare International. The change is being made to focus attention on the company’s service offerings and to avoid unintentionally extending visibility of a terrorist organisation.

1st March 2016

As of today Portcare International will serve as both the trading name, or brand and the official registered company name of the marketing and media communications consultancy that has been serving the global maritime and freight transport industry for nearly twenty years.

Over this time the company has built a strong reputation for providing relevant and well-crafted communication services to a range of clients that include blue-chip organisations in container shipping, maritime insurance, port and terminal operations, logistics, freight transport and supply chain management.

It is unfortunate that in recent years the Isis brand has been increasingly used to describe a particularly destructive terrorist group, deflecting attention from the company’s professional abilities and tainting its image. However, Portcare is now confident that the consistency of its service levels and strong relationships with both media and clients will maintain its reputation in the industry.

Managing Director Peter Owen commented, “Over the past months we have resisted changing our name, feeling that we would be giving in to forces seeking to destabilise our society. However, more recently we have felt an increasing moral obligation to cease being an unwitting promulgator of a ‘brand’ with such evil connotations. We thank our clients for their support and sympathy in taking this necessary step and reassure our friends in the media that we strongly maintain a ‘business as usual’ attitude”.

Portcare International has been the official limited company designation since the organisation was established in 1997. It now becomes a brand representing honest and effective communication, intimate understanding of the industries served and of values that hold personal relationships with both clients and the media in the highest esteem.
