Lalemant gets new structure. Arthur Seynaeve and Christophe Webb acquire a controlling stake of the group and, as co-CEOs, become the new steersmen of the international Ghent-based shipping and transportation group.

Lalemant can offer its customers integrated solutions that extend to handling and storage of dry bulk and breakbulk. Lalemant has an annual turnover of EUR 114 million and employs 104 people.
