Tschudi expands presence in East Africa
Tschudi Logistics has further strengthened its presence in the Eastern coast of Africa by launching a new company, Tschudi Tanzania, in Dar es Salaam. The company will provide logistics solutions for on- and offshore operations.
Since Tschudi Logistics’ first expansion into East Africa, the market has developed rapidly, the company noted in its statement. The need for logistics services going from Europe and China into East Africa is now evident. The establishment of Tschudi Tanzania will support the offices in Mozambique, and the collaboration between the two Tschudi companies can help better meet the growing demand in East Africa.
Positioned strongly in the East African market
This marks the third time Tschudi Logistics Group has expanded operations in East Africa since establishing Tschudi Mozambique in 2019. Since then, Tschudi Mozambique has slowly turned its focus from LNG projects to more general forwarding and project transport services. Tschudi’s operations in East Africa now consists of Tschudi Mozambique with offices in Maputo and Pemba as well as Tschudi Tanzania in Dar es Salaam.
“We see an immense potential and local interest to attract foreign investors. We want to be ready to meet their logistics needs in the years to come,” said Thomas Vestergaard, CCO at Tschudi Logistics, and managing director of Tschudi Mozambique.
Day-to-day running of Tschudi Tanzania will be headed by Vestergaard, as well as by newly appointed business development manager, Bernadette Mende. Furthermore, Tschudi Tanzania aims to hire an additional two staff members within the coming months.
Tschudi eyes tight collaboration with sister companies
Tschudi Tanzania will, like Tschudi Mozambique, provide services for logistics, LNG transhipments, ship management and agency. Further, clients will be able to get assistance with agency services; storage solutions; procurement and import as well as visa and permit services. These services, which are partly provided in cooperation with the sister company, Tschudi Ship Management, allow the Tschudi team to aid clients better than ever before with local staff in Dar es Salaam.
Tschudi Tanzania will also help Tschudi better facilitate projects going to and from destinations in the middle of Africa such as The Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya just to mention a few. The expansion is a part of Tschudi’s ambition to be involved in the most complex projects as well as to deliver service at the highest possible level.
