DB Schenker establishes eight new branches – in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The region where these countries lie is located at the intersection of major trade routes and acts as a hub and economic bridge between Asia and Europe – explains the operator in a press release.
These countries have been served by the company’s partners so far. This will change soon.
This region offers excellent opportunities that we want to integrate with our European and global networks. Thanks to the presence on the local market, we can provide our clients with a broader international transport network, excellent service and proven quality from one source – comments Jochen Thewes, CEO of DB Schenker. – By expanding the network to the Caucasus and Central Asia region, we are sending an important message about market expansion outside Europe, he adds.
First, DB Schenker will launch a new branch in Kazakhstan, where DB Schenker’s own subsidiary has already been set up, which will be integrated into the DB Schenker network from January 2020.
Azerbaijan will be next. There, the local agency will be integrated into the DB Schenker network in the next two months. Branches in other countries are to be established as early as 2020.
