August 1 - Weiss-R
A combination of Gebrüder Weiss of Lauterach and Röhlig Logistics of Bremen, Weiss-Röhlig has officially opened branches in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi - the two most important transport hubs in Vietnam. The new branches will offer a broad range of services in the air and sea freight, project cargo and breakbulk sectors.
"The sites in northern and southern Vietnam are an ideal addition to our network on the South China Sea," says Joe Lässer, air and global development director at Gebrüder Weiss.
Weiss-Röhlig Vietnam is the result of years of cooperation with the Vietnamese transportation company RLG, whose International Forwarding business area was taken over by Gebrüder Weiss. Cristian Predan, who previously managed Gebrüder Weiss Air & Sea in Romania and Bulgaria, heads-up the new company.
"The demand for industrial machinery, spare parts, highly specialised goods and niche products makes Vietnam a very interesting market for companies from the western industrialised countries," said Predan.
Weiss-Röhlig also aims to convert domestic customers to its extensive range of services.
