Levant Express Transport SAL – Since 1930

The company was established in 1930 by a German organization and was very active in the transit business to Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and neighboring countries. Due to the start of the Lebanese war in the 70’s, the management composed mainly by German nationals had to evacuate the country. The Cargomaster Group acquired all shares of the company in 1992.

Levant Express Transport is one of the oldest freight forwarders in the Middle East.

It is also the 92nd company established in Lebanon hence our Commercial Registry Nbr 92.

Levant Express Transport is fully FIATA and IATA licensed for more than 50 years. Click here to see the Letter of Accomplishment.
