​Gebruder Weiss opened a new representative office for air and sea freight services in Christchurch, the largest city on New Zealand’s South Island, on October 12.

This becomes the second location, after Auckland, that the globally active transport and logistics service provider has opened this year in New Zealand, further evidence of the company’s work to further expand its local network in the antipodes and in the East Asia/Oceania region.

“The company’s expansion to New Zealand and Australia was yet another milestone in our strategy for the Asia/Pacific region. We made a good start to our market entry in the southern hemisphere in July this year and are very happy, just a few months later, to be able to offer another location,” commented Michael Zankel, Regional Manager East Asia/Oceania at Gebruder Weiss.

“Gebrüder Weiss now has a presence in the most important economic regions of the island nation, being able to offer customised solutions for door-to-door transport in the air and sea areas and for project orders.”

The primary focus will be on imports from the US, Europe and, above all, from Asian markets such as China and Japan.
