International transport and info-logistics provider, cargo-partner, opens its first office in Melbourne, Australia and a further Malaysian office in Penang, as well as Dubai and Austria, as part of its global growth.
With Dubai in the UAE, the company is adding another country to its network of agent liaison and key account support offices. In addition, cargo-partner is solidifying its existing presence in Austria and Malaysia.
Cargo-partner says it is fully on track with its international growth agenda. In parallel to strengthening its contract logistics network with new warehouses around the world, the company says its growth is also reflected in the steadily increasing number of offices in existing and new markets.
In Melbourne, which is fully operational from 15 July, cargo-partner provides a comprehensive range of air, sea, road transport, contract logistics, customs and other value added services.
Meanwhile, in Malaysia, the company has taken up operations with a sales and customer service office in Penang in addition to its existing office in Kuala Lumpur, which was established in 2011.
In the United Arab Emirates, cargo-partner has opened a non-operative agents’ liaison and key account support office in Dubai to better serve the needs of agents and clients in the region.
Despite its growing global presence, the international info-logistics provider is not losing sight of its origins in Austria, it says. To strengthen its position in the west of the country, cargo-partner will open a new office in Wolfurt in the most western Austrian province of Vorarlberg in August.
Stefan Krauter, CEO of cargo-partner, on the motivations behind the ongoing expansions: “Following our strategy of organic growth we are expanding our coverage within the countries where we are already established, like recently in China’s hinterland, Malaysia or Western Austria.
“Our new set-up in Dubai will serve the development of our global agents’ network within the Gulf area and Sub-Sahara Africa. It will also support some of our global key accounts, our partner carriers and add great value to our service quality delivered through agents in this area. In Australia we have been successful for many years, so we decided to enter this market with our own organisation.”
