Tschudi Logistics is continuing its East African expansion with the establishment of Tschudi Tanzania, based in Dar es Salaam.

Tschudi Mozambique Project

Recently, Tschudi Mozambique handled a transport of heavy cargo going from Mombasa Port to Moshi, Tanzania.

Tschudi Logistics first established operations in East Africa in 2019 with the opening of Tschudi Mozambique, which initially had a focus on LNG projects. Since then, the company has moved into more general forwarding and project transport services and expanded its office network to include Maputo and Pemba. Tschudi Tanzania joins this East African set up, offering logistics solutions for on and offshore operations while supporting the offices in Mozambique.

The day-to-day running of Tschudi Tanzania will be led by Thomas Vestergaard, chief commercial officer of Tschudi Logistics and managing director of Tschudi Mozambique. He will be supported by the newly appointed business development manager Bernadette Mende. The team in Tanzania will be further expanded with two additional staff members in the coming months.

Vestergaard said: “We see an immense potential and local interest to attract foreign investors. We want to be ready to meet their logistics needs in the years to come.”

He added: “Our business is all about our people, their connections, and their ability to fulfil the client’s needs. Tschudi Logistics’ comprehensive network in East Africa allows us to target individuals – such as Mende – who are experts on local developments and know the unique demands of the region.”

Tschudi Tanzania will, like Tschudi Mozambique, provide services for logistics, LNG transhipments, ship management and agency. Clients will be able to get assistance with agency services; storage solutions; procurement and import as well as visa and permit services. These services are partly provided in cooperation with the sister company Tschudi Ship Management.

Tschudi Tanzania will also help Tschudi better facilitate projects going to and from destinations in the middle of Africa such as the Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya.
