Transport and logistics firm Gebrüder Weiss is launching new locations for its Air & Sea division in Australia and New Zealand.
The company’s new Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland facilities are part of its “global strategy to develop new markets”.
Gebrüder Weiss said the new sites are an “essential addition” within the region of East Asia/Oceania, in which it currently operates 35 facilities.
Michael Zankel, regional manager East Asia/Oceania at Gebrüder Weiss, explained: “As we enter the markets in Australia and New Zealand, we will focus primarily on import business from Asian, American and European markets.
“The important thing here is to establish compelling delivery chains in the future, based on our long-standing experience in the logistics market. In this context, we also make sure to tie in with fast-growing transport activities within Asia and create synergies when it comes to the efficient use of transport capacities.”
Gebrüder Weiss will tap into the markets of business commodities such as vehicles and automotive parts, machines and electronic products, as well as goods from the food and chemical industries, which are imported from the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia to the East Asia/Oceania region.
