Logistics and warehousing: Access World is world class

Are you looking for the best solution for the storage and transport of your commodity? The management of a few million tonnes of any product through the supply chain is no easy task. It takes skill, knowledge and commitment to guarantee the security of commodities through each stage. For your peace of mind, you need a world-class logistics and warehousing company. You need Access World Logistics.


Your global logistics and warehousing solutions

The original company began as a family-owned business in Italy in 1933. With over eighty years experience under our belts, the Company has grown in strength over the years. In 2010, Glencore took over the family business, renaming it Pacorini Metals. At this time, we continued to focus on the logistics and warehousing of metal products. But, over the next six years, Pacorini Metals began expanding the product base to include a variety of other commodities. This expansion led us to reinvent ourselves. No longer only a metals business, our new name needed to express our global reach and product offering. Thus, in 2016, Access World was born.


A quality logistics and warehousing company

Access World is a leader in logistics and warehousing solutions. The Company operates a network of ports and warehouse facilities worldwide. Seamless and strategic, Access World handles around twenty to twenty-four million tons of commodities annually. For this reason, we make it our business to have a good understanding of all the products we work with. The Company is prominent in many commodity sectors. Ferrous and Non Ferrous metals were the original focus of the business. But agricultural products, forest products and lumber, oil and gas, and project cargo are now part of our service offering.
We strive to build lasting relationships with our customers. We are continually adapting to the scale and pace of the business to offer the best service. As such, one of our core principles is maintaining a standardisation throughout. We understand the importance of being knowledgeable in all the sectors we deal with, a factor contributing to our success as a company.
