Agility has signed an agreement to acquire the Paris based Medgroup that includes Medorient Algeria, Medorient France and Med-Logistics UK.

Algeria is a new country on Agilitys network map while the Marseille office of Medorient France will extend Agilitys presence in the country.

At Agility, we recognise the importance of providing our customers with comprehensive services to meet their individual business needs throughout the world.  By integrating the Medgroup into our global network, we have not only expanded our reach in the North Africa and  European region but also enhanced the depth of our service offering. said Beat Simon, Chief Executive Officer, Europe for Agility.

The Medgroup gives exceptional support to the fast growing oil and gas industry with comprehensive coverage of ports and have superior customs clearance capabilities in Algeria.

Joining the Agility family is a great opportunity for Medgroup. We will benefit immensely from their culture of personal service while our customers get access to a global network, greater expertise and an enhanced comprehensive suite of services. explained Jacques Perraudeau Director for the Medgroup.
