Gebruder Weiss expands operations in Kazakhstan with acquisition 09 March 2016

Location will function as a central hub for regions around the Caspian Sea

Gebruder Weiss is contining to expand its competence in Central Asia with the acquisition of two subsidiary branches of the freight forwarder Brockmuller in Almaty, Kazakhstan. With the new location in southern Kazakhstan, Gebruder Weiss is closing a geographical gap between Europe and China and strengthening its own network in Central Asia.

The 12 employees at the Kazakhstan location have many years of experience in national and international project business, as well as regional cargo transportations, particularly in the automotive sector. As of the beginning of March, the two branches are officially being run as the Gebruder Weiss Kazakhstan location.

The new location will function as a central hub for the regions around the Caspian Sea and as a link between Europe, the CIS countries and, in particular, China.

The Company already has its own branches in Georgia, Russia, Turkey and China and offers a weekly groupage freight transport to Turkmenistan. In the medium term, the local services in Kazakhstan will be expanded to include customs, warehouse and logistics solutions, and possible additional locations will be determined.
