Equipment owners network outlines expansion plans

August 8 - Wolfgang Karau, director of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) used a recent visit to Finnish member, Nurminen Logistics to outline some of the network's plans for future development.

In the three years that it has been in existence, the network has become recognised as a valuable resource for purchasers of heavy cargo transportation services, says Karau.

He adds that the first half of 2011 saw increased activities and positive developments for the CEE network, including the addition of new members such as Nurminen Logistics.

In April 2012, CEE will exhibit at the world's largest trade fair for logistics in Sao Paulo, Brazil. One month later, in May 2012, CEE will exhibit in Antwerp during the BreakBulk Exhibition and the network's third annual membership conference will take place in Antwerp during the same month.

Karau says: "We look forward to an interesting second half of 2011 and are gearing up to welcome more suitable companies to join the network."
