LBH Colombia´s origin was a single agency owned by CMB Group from Belgium operating out of Puerto Bolivar as of 1989 under the name of Servitramp. Late in 1993, Mauricio Ibañez and the Lagendijk brothers from LBH Group joined forces and bought Servitramp and changed its name to Eurolatina S&C Ltd, formally in operation as of January 1994. In response to market priorities and globalization, and other regulatory formalities, the company was restructured as LBH Colombia in 2007, and proudly moves towards its 30th anniversary of operations, having become one of the most trustable agencies in the region.
With the new ownership expansion came as a priority in order to benefit from the country´s foreign trade potentials. We already had Barranquilla and Puerto Bolivar offices and before the end of the century we had opened offices in Cartagena and Santa Marta. Soon after this we opened office in Coveñas/Tolu, and later on we expanded with direct presence into Buenaventura. In order to meet legal requirements for serving ships at Bolivar and Puerto Brisa we also opened in Riohacha, and last year we expanded our operations into Turbo/Apartado area.
With a highly motivated and well trained and experienced workforce, we are able to offer the highest level of professional service in port, customs logistics, and maritime industries to cargo and ship owners alike. Our people love what they do, which is to offer trust and reliability. We make sure everything is done in a safe, and efficient manner, and managing with accuracy documentation and instructions required by all parties involved, and by Colombian authorities. We fulfill our mission by maximizing our human talent’s potential, providing opportunities for innovation and continuous training, respecting the business, minimizing our work’s negative impact on the environment, and leaving a positive impression on our customers who give us a try, and the communities that shelter us.
