TGP adds Chinese locations

Trans Global Projects (TGP) has opened two offices in China.

The offices in Shanghai and Dalian will offer TGP’s entire portfolio of services, including project logistics management, ship chartering, aviation logistics, supply chain management, logistics consultancy and procurement.

TGP’s ceo Colin Charnock explained: “Our main focus will be serving the export market from China for heavy equipment and machinery for the oil and gas, mining, power and renewables industries to project locations worldwide”.

The offices will operate as Trans Global Projects China. TGP’s existing Hong Kong branch will relocate to the location in Shanghai, which will serve as TGP’s Chinese headquarters.

According to TGP, it chose the two new locations to place a stronger strategic focus on China’s heavy industry heartland.

Charnock added: “The launch of our Shanghai and Dalian offices allows TGP not only to offer added value and services to our existing customers in China and the region, but also further expands our network and clientele in China.”
