Hansa Meyer Global Transport and Rohde & Liesenfeld (ROLI Projects) have formed a joint venture to serve the North American project logistics market and the related project owners, EPCs and suppliers.

Hansa Meyer Global Transport has had a legal entity in the USA since 2010. During 2021, the company sold its shares in its operational and asset-based companies, as HLPFI reported here. ROLI Projects – the registered trademark of Rohde & Liesenfeld – has been serving the North American market for more than 20 years.  

Previously, Rohde & Liesenfeld worked as agent for the Hansa Meyer Global network outside the USA and also executed a number of US-based industrial projects for the group.

“We are feel thrilled about our strategy to combine both our groups knowhow, capacity and contacts to set up a brand new company in Houston, Texas, the heart of the US industrial project market and to jointly participate to a maximum extent, simply by combining and growing our forces,” said Jan-Dirk Schuisdziara, managing shareholder at Hansa Meyer Global.

The joint venture’s business development in the USA will be led by Julie Shafer, who has over 25 years of project logistics leadership experience and has held various project management roles at GE Transport, Geodis and Rohde & Liesenfeld. 

Jan Beringer, ceo and shareholder at ROLI Projects, said: “We are pleased to be part of this joint venture with the Hansa Meyer Group and our joint success story in North America. Both companies are well known for unique, reliable and creative project work. We have the same mindset… our teams fit together very well and will be only stronger together.”
