KCA DEUTAG awards global freight tender to Panalpina

September 8 - Panalpina is likely to see significant heavy and over-dimensional shipments as part of the additional business that it has been awarded by KCA DEUTAG in the key countries of Angola, Gabon, Libya, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan over the next three

The deal involves retention of both key current business and the award of new business activity, strongly increasing Panalpina's overall commercial relationship with KCA DEUTAG based on measurable performance. The contract really is a joint effort by the global Panalpina network and the highly specialised teams within Panprojects, says a company spokesperson.

"Expectations from KCA DEUTAG's side are to work with a professional partner and base the renewed partnership on credibility, capability, and competence. This vision combined with a very strong focus on efficiency will be a major improvement and achievable target for a professional freight forwarder like Panalpina to deliver door-to-door service for KCA DEUTAG globally", says Frank Goerke, Leader of Materials and Transport at KCA DEUTAG.
