HHLA Project Logistics opens new office in Almaty
Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA)’s subsidiary HHLA Project Logistics has opened a new office in Kazakhstan. With a celebratory event on 23rd of February 2023, the new location was inaugurated. The new office further expands HHLA Project Logistics’ network, which already extends across the Caucasus region.
HHLA Project Logistics offers specialist transport solutions for the entire Caucasus region and neighbouring areas of Central Asia dealing with project cargo from parcels to heavy and oversized loads. After opening offices in Georgia and Azerbaijan, the new location in Kazakhstan forms the missing link between Europe, Caucasus region and Central Asia. From Almaty the company will be able to offer its customers a wider range of services. Especially the railway connections through Kazakhstan are becoming more important today as more goods are transported via the Middle Silk Road from Central Asia to Europe and vice versa.
Philip Sweens, Managing Director HHLA International, said: “We are very happy to expand the network of HHLA Project Logistics. The opening event was a great way to get to know potential partners and customers in the region. With the new office in Almaty, we have access to one of the most important markets in Central Asia. No matter whether its truck, rail or air freight transport – with HHLA Project Logistics, customers have a reliable partner at their side who can advise them on all transport-related issues.”
Since 2001, HHLA Project Logistics has its headquarters in the Georgian seaport of Poti, a hub on the ancient Silk Road. It operates additional branches in Tbilisi (Georgia) and Baku (Azerbaijan). HHLA Project Logistics specialises in all stages of handling project cargo, particularly on behalf of international and local freight forwarders. High levels of quality and reliability are built into its service with a “safety first” approach taken on every single project (certified to ISO 9001 and 14000 standards).
