General Sales & Service Agent (GSSA), the ECS Group, has acquired its Morocco-based partner of more than two decades, EFIS MAROC.
Headquartered in Casablanca, EFIS MAROC offers GSA and air cargo services, including the supervising of handling outsized cargo, dangerous goods, perishables, and live animals.
Founded by Pierre Fougerouse, EFIS MAROC’s client portfolio includes international and local freight forwarders.
EFIS MAROC is positioned at Casablanca Mohammed V Airport (CMN), and 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).
Adrien Thominet, executive chairman of ECS Group, said: “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.
“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.”
Pierre Fougerouse, founder of EFIS MAROC, said: “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.
“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.”
