ALPI Belgium started its activities almost 25 years ago on June 1st, 1992. It is mainly specialized in road-freight but can also offers sea and airfreight through its daughter company Sotiaux International which was founded at the end of 2009. The offices and warehouses (10000 m2 for ALPI Belgium and 8000 m2 for Sotiaux International) are strategically situated in Brussels, near the airport of Zaventem and at only 60 Km from the very important port of Antwerp. The warehouses are all secured and under 24/7 camera supervision which enables them to store high value goods for the clients. All deliveries and pick-ups (approximately 50.000 in 2016) in Belgium and Luxemburg are handled under their own supervision with approximately 10 to 15 national trucks a day, all with tail lift.
