Firm

Our French group specializes in the organization of maritime transport for three generations. We have been running this family business in Marseille and upholding its values since 1987.

 

In 2014, Clément Balladur took over from his father as the head of the firm, turning it into a group with undisguised ambitions for international development.

air freight

HBI Air was created in 2019 and obtained IATA accreditation in May 2019.
This allows the HBI Group to offer continuity of service to our clients, by also offering to manage flight operations in order to meet urgent needs and very short turnaround times.

As a result, HBI can satisfy the multi-modal requirements that govern international trade today and is becoming completely multi-functional so we can satisfy each of our clients’ constraints.
