Capitalmind Investec has advised Axéréal in the disposal of SMTP and Sud Services (port handling, consignment and storage services) to Arterris

About the deal

SMTP and Sud Services are acquired by Arterris, an agricultural cooperative active in Southern France. The acquisition of this perimeter enables Arterris to consolidate its market share in the port of Port-la-Nouvelle, while developing its traditional activities (notably cereal, oilseed and seed collection, handling and processing).

SMTP and Sud Services specialize in port services, including handling, loading, unloading, warehousing, consignment, transit, quality control, storage, conditioning, processing and shipment.
