“The EMO Trans organization proudly announces our new exclusive global co-operation partnership with Bidvest International Logistics (BIL) in South Africa that commences in early 2020,” Jo Frigger, CEO of EMO Trans told FlyingTypers as a blockbuster deal between BIL and EMO was announced Monday November 4.

Bidvest Moves To EMO From Panalpina

  What makes this announcement even more dramatic is Bidvest Panalpina Logistics (BPL) is splitting from DSV/Panalpina after 46 years of commercial partnership and will in future trade as Bidvest International Logistics, effective early 2020, once all regulatory changes have been completed.
