Two companies form exclusive alliance to create unified global service

Pentagon Freight Services and TLC SA Transportation Logistic Consulting have formed a strategic alliance in order to enhance the range and global reach of their service.

The partnership between the two companies allows them to pool their combined resources, giving both a means of representation in countries where they do not currently have a presence.

TLC, headquartered in Switzerland and founded in 2001, has over 200 members of staff and a well-established position in over 12 countries including key regions in Africa, South America, and the Caribbean.

This alliance allows the two companies to leverage TLC’s first-hand expertise in solving complex logistics challenges at destinations and combining them with Pentagon’s extensive network of offices to form a partnership that can boast a combined 65 years of global logistics experience in the Energy, Resource and Infrastructure Sectors.

Pentagon, headquartered in London and established in 1974, with 71 offices around the world and over 1,100 members of staff, has an unrivalled reputation for providing first-class quality and value to the Energy and Resource Sectors for over 45 years. Working in partnership with TLC allows it to extend this exceptional service and expand its global network.

This exclusive partnership came about when the two companies, who have cooperated in selected markets previously, found they had a common set of values and principles, such as strong ethical business practices, an agile mindset and an absolute commitment to customer satisfaction. It was on these principles that the foundation of the alliance was formed.

Commenting on the strategic alliance, Ashley Taylor, CEO of Pentagon Freight Services, said: “We are very excited to be working with a company as experienced and respected as TLC. Their total commitment to compliance and bespoke customer solutions is particularly impressive.”

“Their offices in strategically important locations in Africa and new “hotspots” in the Caribbean and South America allow us to extend our high quality of service directly to these regions, while simultaneously taking advantage of the wealth of expertise they have in dealing directly with the complex logistics scenarios that can arise at destination.”

Philippe Masserey, CEO of TLC, also added: “It’s really great to be working with an internationally renowned logistics provider such as Pentagon whose reputation, lineage and history in the energy and resource sector makes it an ideal partner to collaborate with.”

“We can now offer our customers significantly wider market coverage, along with a seamless end-to-end service, cemented with fully integrated IT systems.”

“This alliance underscores the value we can offer as a door-to-door service provider, and we look forward to working more closely with Pentagon as our relationship progresses.”
