Rock-It Cargo, provider of logistics services to live event shippers, is increasing its stake in Triple M Entertainment Logistics.

Antwerp, Belgium-based Triple M focuses on four categories of shippers covering live entertainment, stage, performing arts and corporate logistics.

It is near the seaport and connected to an inland jetty allowing containers to be trucked or barged to their cross-load site with the capacity to handle up to 15 containers or trucks simultaneously.

For air cargo, Antwerp provides easy access to Brussels and Liege airports in Belgium, Schiphol and Maastricht in the Netherlands, as well as Luxembourg to give shippers plenty of options in and out of the area.

Paul Martins, president of Rock-It Cargo says: “Triple M are well positioned geographically to assist us with all the logistics needs of our live touring customers, sports customers, industrial product customers and other end vertical markets we serve.”

Philippe Marecaux, managing director of Triple M says: “Considering our geographical location and our team of enthusiastic and hands-on operators, it will surely make Triple-M and Antwerp the preferred gateway to Europe for the entire CargoLive family.”

The presence in Belgium also helps Rock-It with the uncertain future of the UK-EU customs clearance process if Brexit happens on 31 October.

Martins says: “We have a strong presence with multiple large facilities in London. In anticipation of unforeseen Brexit challenges, strengthening our presence on the continent makes pragmatic business sense.”
