ECS deliberately decided to centralise its operational activities. The organisation is managed from two operating centres. The company was first established in Zeebrugge and later expanded to Venlo. In addition ECS has several branch offices offering sales and customer service support.
Zeebrugge was chosen as it provides a direct link between Europe and the UK and between Europe and Ireland. There are several advantages to such centralisation: it is cost-effective, lines of communication are short and reaction time is faster.
