Swiss project logistics specialist KOG Worldwide has further expanded its presence in the US with a Chicago branch under the management of subsidiary KOG Transport Inc.

With representative offices already located in New York and Houston, this is the project logistics specialist’s third site in the US.

“The business potential in the US is enormous,” said KOG Worldwide managing director Tobias König, adding: “The US is one of the largest economies in the world and many of our customers are already operating here.

“As a company with global operations, it’s essential for us to have a strong network in the USA too. We’ve taken a further step with Chicago and we’ll continue to expand our network in the next few years too.”

The president of KOG Transport in the US, Colin D’Abreo, stated: “There is great economic potential here in Chicago.

“About 9.6m people live in the metropolitan area. At our new operations base, we will provide services in project logistics, break bulk cargo and overland, air and sea transport.”

KOG, part of the larger Rhenus Group, manages international logistics projects and the international transport of plant to destinations in the US, Europe and Asia. The company has 21 subsidiaries in 18 different countries.
