Avant is headquartered in Dublin with branches in Shanghai and Hong Kong, has been providing sea and air freight services and cross-border services for imports and exports since 1990.
“We’ve found a customer-oriented partner in the Rhenus Group and it will enable us to continue developing our services for our existing and future customers due to its global network and its comprehensive expertise,” says David Warren, Avant’s managing director.
Jörn Schmersahl, managing director of Rhenus Air and Ocean Europe, adds: “Avant Air and Sea is a company with a strong focus on customer relations as well as providing important services for the air and sea freight sector and it will make an important contribution to the ongoing growth of the Rhenus Group. We’re delighted to be able to continue developing the Rhenus business activities in Ireland together with Avant,”
Avant Air and Sea provides weekly consolidation and groupage freight services from the US, China and other Asian and Oceanic countries.

Haulage and cargo transportation, consolidation, customs services, document preparation and insurance are all part of its services for sea freight.
