Alonso Group Strengthens Maghreb Presence with Launch of Alonso Forwarding Morocco

Global logistics leader Alonso Group has further expanded its international network with the launch of Alonso Forwarding Morocco. The new branch, headquartered in Casablanca, Morocco’s economic and port hub, reinforces the company’s coverage in the Maghreb region.

Comprehensive Logistics Solutions

Alonso Forwarding Morocco offers a complete range of logistics services, including third-party logistics (3PL). With a particular focus on maritime transport, the branch handles full container loads (FCL) and consolidated shipments (LCL). Additionally, they facilitate land transport between Morocco, the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), and the rest of Europe, managing groupage, LCL, and full truck loads (FTL). This comprehensive service portfolio aims to streamline trade with neighboring countries, especially Spain, with whom Morocco has recently strengthened trade relations.

Experienced Team Drives Growth

The new branch boasts a team of seasoned professionals with extensive experience in supply chain management and a deep understanding of the Maghreb market. “We are committed to providing solutions with frequent connections between all of Europe and Morocco,” highlights Alonso Forwarding Morocco. The team is already laying the groundwork for a second office in Tangier, further solidifying their presence in the country.

Solidifying Global Presence

The launch of Alonso Forwarding Morocco underscores the company’s commitment to expanding its global network, strategically positioned in key trade hubs worldwide. In the Maghreb region alone, they now have offices in Algeria (Alonso Forwarding Asamar Algerie) and Tunisia (Alonso Forwarding Tunis), complementing their established presence in Asia, North America, Central America, South America, and Europe.

Morocco: Rising Maritime Power and Nearshoring Hub

In recent years, Morocco has made significant investments in its maritime infrastructure, including the expansion of the Tangier Med port, and its rail network with the ongoing construction of a high-speed line connecting Tangier, Marrakech, and Agadir. The construction sector is also flourishing, particularly with infrastructure projects related to co-hosting the 2030 FIFA World Cup alongside Spain and Portugal.

Morocco’s strategic location positions it as a prime example of “nearshoring,” where companies choose geographically close countries for production instead of more distant locations. This strategy reduces transportation costs, shortens delivery times, and facilitates cultural and time zone compatibility.

With the launch of Alonso Forwarding Morocco, Alonso Group is poised to play a vital role in facilitating trade and supporting businesses in the Maghreb region and beyond.
