03.07.2017 Vos Logistics sells Zozaya Cisternas to focus more on dry bulk

Vos Logistics, Oss, the Netherlands, has recently divested Barcelona-based joint-venture Zozaya Cisternas SL, in order to further focus on its core activities in Europe: dry bulk logistics, value-added services and transportation. Until recently, Zozaya Cisternas was a joint venture of Vos Logistics (55%) and the Zozaya family (45%). The business activities focused on liquid transport, mainly for the Spanish domestic market. The Spanish liquid activities were earlier concluded by Vos Logistics to be no longer part of its strategic core business. Pañalon SA has acquired 100% of the shares of Zozaya Cisternas. 
Marc van Alphen, managing director at Vos Bulk Logistics, said: “With our European dry bulk transport, our bulk specialties and logistics predominantly in the Benelux, Germany and France, our strategic markets and activities lie elsewhere. We trust that Pañalon will be able to support the growth of the sound business activities of Zozaya Cisternas.”
Pañalon is planning on further extending its local distribution of liquid chemicals. CEO Antonio Montero commented: “We are pleased to be taking over Zozaya Cisternas, a long standing well run family business with a good reputation in their market. This acquisition enables us to gain more efficiency in our domestic network and to provide even higher service standards to our customers.”
