Austrian logistics firm cargo-partner has opened a new office close to Manchester Airport to support its UK growth.

Following its acquisition of UK firm Aztek International Freight Ltd in March, cargo-partner’s Manchester team has relocated to a new office, to support further development of the team, services and products.

After embarking on a joint venture with Aztek International Freight Ltd in 2021, cargo-partner acquired the remaining shares of the company earlier this year.

Over the last few months, the team has grown to 70 UK employees in three locations across the UK. 

cargo-partner’s UK managing director Neil Murray said: “We’re pleased to have delivered on such an ambitious growth strategy so far this year, with new service offerings and multiple new team members highlighting our current positive momentum – but we’re not stopping there.

“With existing offices in Manchester, Bradford and East London, we are pleased to announce that we have opened the doors to a new office by Manchester Airport as we continue to deliver on our expansive strategy for the UK and beyond.”

Following the acquisition of Aztek International, cargo-partner said the two teams have collaborated well over the last 12 months, having previously worked together as separate businesses for many years.

The full UK cargo-partner team is now able to provide air, sea, road and customs services.

Cargo-partner has traditionally had a strong presence in Central and Eastern Europe but has recently substantially invested in expanding its footprint in Western Europe.

The company has long-established branch offices in Germany, Benelux, Sweden and Ireland, but has more recently expanded its network into the UK, Italy and Spain.
