January 7 - The Project Professionals Group (PPG) project forwarding network has started the New Year strongly with the appointment of two new project support members (PSM) and one project forwarder, says PPG general manger Kevin Stephens.

Super Rack is the new PSM in both Korea and Japan. The Singapore-based equipment manufacturer developed a height-adjustable flat rack for containers in 2001 and has a worldwide reputation for using this technology for shipping companies carrying over-dimension cargoes.


Transpes A. Logica Em Transportes had been appointed as the PSM for Brazil and will attend the PPG annual conference in Rio de Janeiro in June as a major sponsor. Transpes offers special road transport for oversize cargoes, in addition to storage, loading and unloading services throughout Brazil and Mercosur.


Scan Global-TransProject has been appointed as the new PPG member for central China.


Stephens said: "I am confident PPG would build on its successes and continue to expand its international footprint and focus on strong membership and services to clients in 2011."
