The shareholders of Hansa Meyer Global Transport USA and Hansa Meyer Heavy Haul & Rigging USA have agreed to sell all shares of both USA-based companies. The asset-based businesses will continue to operate under the branding ATLAS Heavy Projects and ATLAS Heavy Transport, respectively.

ATLAS Heavy and its employees will take over all contractual responsibilities from Hansa Meyer Global Transport USA and Hansa Meyer Heavy Haul & Rigging to continue existing business, local contracts and ambitious asset-based growth plans.

Germany-headquartered Hansa Meyer Global Transport, with its network of 22 offices, will continue its international business in the USA, and plans to further expand its project logistics activities in the country with a group of longstanding industry partner companies.

By the fourth quarter of this year, Hansa Meyer Global Group will open a separate USA-based project logistics entity with a core focus on international capital investment cargo and EPC project business.

Jan-Dirk Schuisdziara, managing director of Hansa Meyer Global Holding, said: “We thank our partner, friend and ceo Mr Frank Scheibner for his outstanding contribution and technical, asset-based unique solutions as well as a decade of growth for our network in the USA. We are happy to continue our successful work on unique, technical based end-to-end solutions with ATLAS Heavy.”

Scheibner added: “We appreciate the longstanding relationship and partnership with the Hansa Meyer Group. Atlas Heavy Transport will continue to invest in heavy haul and rigging equipment such as SPMT’s, heavy haul trailers, gantries etc. Atlas Heavy Projects will continue to focus on global project forwarding and logistics. ATLAS Heavy is a member of a network with 260 offices worldwide. We are also looking forward to work with the Hansa Meyer group on a case-by-case basis in the future.”
