Tschudi Logistics moves in-house chartering to Oslo
Tschudi Logistics has moved its chartering department closer to the headquarters in Oslo, Norway, after previously operating it from Aarhus, Denmark. The company’s in-house chartering department has been in effect since Tschudi Logistics started in 2006 as a logical leg to support our project logistics team in providing solutions for ocean freight.
Stig Rich Pedersen will be head of the department and he will draw on his experience and know-how stemming from more than 20 years in the maritime and logistics industry.
“Having an in-house chartering department gives us a strong competitive advantage. Our extensive network of ship owners, and the short chain of command enables our team to deliver flexible solutions – quickly. Our sole purpose, as in-house chartering department, is to support our co-workers in finding the right tonnage at the right time, so the end-client gets the best possible solution every time,” says Stig.
Stig Rich Pedersen has been with Tschudi Logistics since August 2021. He has been filling the role as Country Manager of the Norwegian based project logistics department, in addition to being part of the chartering department in Aarhus.
“I have worked with chartering activities for many years, so for me this role was a natural next step in my career, and I am truly grateful for the trust, opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Tschudi is family-owned Norwegian company and centralising our chartering activities closer to our headquarters will naturally create better synergies across the Tschudi Group, and our various shipping & logistics activities,” Stig concluded.
Compared to other modes of transport, ocean freight is most often more price-efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly, while still giving access to rural areas when combining connections with inland transport options such as road, rail, and river barges.
