With an expanding development of their export activity especially towards China, SONORBOIS has chosen CENTRIMEX to handle their export operations. David Caillouel, president of SONORBOIS tells us why :

« CENTRIMEX is an international transport organizer specialist known and recognized at LE HAVRE. The contact Cyril LE GARS was operational immediately and we were able to establish together a logistic organization perfectly adapted to our needs. CENTRIMEX handles the pick up of the goods in the region with regular transporters which are referenced and reliable. We have elaborated together a specific process for the wood treatment at LE HAVRE and signed a multipart agreement enabling us to minimize the pre carriage delays and reduce the costs. »
