A leader in sea freight

Copex has weathered many storms since 1921. As a pioneer in conditioned sea transports, we know how your fragile shipment needs to be handled – shipments such as flower bulbs, living plants, (animal) food and supplements. But we also transport bulk logistics and general cargo.

Container transportation
Copex has been headquartered in Rotterdam, Europe’s main port, since the very beginning. Long before the existence of sea containers, seagoing ships were loaded and unloaded by our people.  Today, container transportation is one of our core activities.

Our experienced team in Rotterdam is ready to receive your import shipments or to organize your export shipments. In addition, partners across the entire globe receive our export sea containers. These are shipments for which Copex has arranged the transportation. The customs declaration is also in our service package. Just one less thing you need to worry about.

Container not full? No problem!
The possibilities in combination with our warehouse are endless. Storage and distribution are our daily business. Our offices are centrally located in the mainport of Europe and is highly accessible. Odd-sized freight that requires special attention is handled by our own employees. And if you do not have a full container? Our consolidation department can offer you the right solution.
