VTG Project Logistics Founds Company in Japan
Hamburg, 19. February 2020
VTG Project Logistics is continuing to expand VTG’s business activities in Eurasia with the establishment of its own company in Japan: VTG Project Logistics Japan K.K. After opening several locations in Russia, Lithuania and China, this move now enables VTG to strengthen its presence in the Far East. “We had already opened a representative office in Japan as early as 2019. The experience was so positive that we are now taking the next logical step forward by founding our own company there,” says Oksana Janssen, Chief Operating Officer Eurasia and Far East of the VTG group. This new location is part of the strategic development of VTG’s project logistics activities. “Our particular strengths here lie in offering transportation of heavy and oversized consignments for plant construction in Russia and in the Commonwealth of Independent States. Since the decision-makers and financiers of these major projects not only come from Europe, but also from Asia – primarily from China and Japan – the new company will give us greater local proximity.” All locations work in close cooperation with each other, allowing large-scale projects to be implemented together in the best possible way – including from Japan with immediate effect.
VTG Project Logistics – expert partner for transporting complex consignments
VTG Project Logistics operates in all transport sectors between Europe and Asia and 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 and Vladivostok. With local teams on site, procedures such as 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 at borders where standard and broad-gauge rail systems meet – a key criterion for rail consignments from both Europe and Asia.
