Necotrans was founded by Richard Talbot in 1985 to focus on freight forwarding activity. In 1989, port management activities and ground logistics in Africa were launched. Necotrans acquired the automotive and equipment distribution activity in West Africa in 1992 to diversify its activities. In 1999, the firm grew in freight forwarding business with the acquisition and the creation of AMT, a logistics firm specialised in the oil industry and services. In 2005, Necotrans took on Vopak LMF France, an industrial logistics project, before adopting in 2012 the brand name Necotrans, encompassing all of the Group’s activities.

In year 2006, Necotrans ventured into Asia, and have since set up offices in Singapore, China, Thailand, India, South Korea and Indonesia. Singapore being the regional head office of Necotrans asia have once again continue to expand our market share in Asia. In 2016, we achieve another milestone by setting up in Myanmar to cater its core activity marine agency, freight forwarding and husbandry services for the oil & gas industry. With the international community easing of sanction on Burma, this have given rise to hopes for Necotrans to continue to invest and grow in Myanmar.
