Tschudi opens project cargo department in Oslo
Scandinavian logistics provider Tschudi Logistics Norway expands its area of business. Starting August 2, the Oslo office will be providing solutions for project transports, like the rest of the Tschudi Logistics group. Additionally, Stig Rich Pedersen will be head of the new Project Cargo Department.
“I have worked intensively with large projects for the past 16 years. I look forward to developing the business here in Norway, and I am sure that there will be plenty of tasks for us to solve. I believe the setup of collaborating offices across borders and Tschudi sister companies form a strong underlying basis for us to build from.” Stig Pedersen says.
The Oslo office currently employs a tightly knitted team, that works intensively with import of alcohol to Norway. The business has been striving for many years, but as an effect of the market developments Christian Klemmetsen, who is the managing director, now believes it is time to further expand the services:
“Our main area of business here in Oslo is currently import of alcohol. However, we also work closely, on a daily basis, with our colleagues from the other Tschudi Logistics offices. Our teams collaborate on various tasks related to all kinds of logistical projects; we especially assist in relation to solving large project transports worldwide. This means that we are in tune with the industry. The plan to expand the service portfolio here in Norway has been long underway, and postponed due to Covid-19, but now the market opportunities seem to be fitting,” Klemmetsen said.

Despite the fact, that the office was firstly started during difficult times of Covid-19 pandemic it has quickly found its place on the Polish market.
“It has been hard work and there is still a long way to go, but the results of the first ten months confirm that re-opening the office was a right decision” says Marek Wiese, managing director Tschudi Logistics Poland.
