Going East: VTG Project Solutions opens new locations in Eastern Europe and Asia
Hamburg, 25. July 2019
To strengthen its presence in Eastern Europe and Asia, VTG Project Solutions is opening new branches in Russia, Lithuania and China as well as a representative office in Japan. The project logistics specialist has been handling the transportation of heavy and oversized loads for many years, particularly from Europe to the CIS countries. With the new branches in Russia and in Klaipėda, Lithuania, VTG is continuing to expand its expertise in this area. The branch in Shanghai and the representative office in Japan will likewise serve to broaden its portfolio in Asia. “There are large numbers of transports from Asia to the CIS and STAN countries. A stronger local presence puts us closer to new businesses that can benefit specifically from our project logistics expertise,” says Oksana Janssen, Head of VTG Project Solutions, explaining the expansion drive. “A stronger presence in Eastern Europe, one of our core project logistics markets, will help to optimize our management and handling of large-scale projects,” she adds.
VTG Project Solutions operates in all transport sectors between Europe, America and Asia. Besides organizing transports, it offers a comprehensive service portfolio that includes preparing load diagrams, obtaining transport permits, and handling and securing loads. Its primary focus is on rail and port operations and the movement of heavy and oversized loads on various modes of transport (rail, road and water), including transshipment via ports such as Klaipėda in Lithuania and Vladivostok in Russia. With local teams on site, procedures like customs clearance, goods inspections, supervision of loading and unloading, and feasibility studies are significantly easier to accomplish. The logistics experts’ core competencies also include coordinating wagon and container transshipments at borders where standard and broad-gauge rail systems meet – a key criterion with transports bound for the CIS region from both Europe and Asia.
