Our Bureau - : Jan 23, 2024 - : 11:28 pm

The ECS Group today announced that it has officially merged EFIS MAROC into the group to reinforce its presence in Africa. The acquisition agreement, signed on December 13, 2023, marks the beginning of a seamless transition and the implementation of digital enhancements for the benefit of EFIS MAROC and its clientele.

“EFIS MAROC has emerged as the market leader in commercial air cargo services, uniquely positioned as the region’s sole GSA with substantial air freight experience and a loyal client base,” affirms Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman of ECS Group. “Morocco’s strategic location holds the potential to become a key African Hub, aligning with ECS Group’s established air cargo hubs in East and South Africa.”

“Our journey began with ECS Group’s support in 2001, and after becoming self-owned in 2003, merging into ECS Group now feels like a fitting evolution of our partnership,” said Pierre Fougerouse, Founder of EFIS MAROC. “I am also pleased to welcome Bouazza El Hantiti as Managing Director, bringing valuable experience from North Africa and Europe to enhance network synergies between Morocco and ECS Group’s European representations.”

With a headquarters in downtown Casablanca, Morocco, EFIS MAROC boasts an impressive client portfolio, including international and local freight forwarders. The company offers GSSA and air cargo and specializes in air, road, and logistics services. Their expertise includes supervising the handling of special products such as outsized cargo, dangerous goods, perishables, and live animals.

EFIS MAROC, strategically positioned at Casablanca Mohammed V Airport (CMN), provides extensive commercial coverage for the country’s major cargo gateways, including Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK), Agadir Al Massira Airport (AGA), and Tangier Ibn Battuta Airport (TNG).

Upon integration into ECS Group, EFIS MAROC’s internal processes will receive a boost through the group’s proprietary digital solutions like Squair, providing improved customs reporting functions. Clients will gain access to CargoAi’s booking platform and wallet payment features, reinforcing EFIS MAROC’s position in a market where manual logistics processes still dominate.
