We are pleased to inform about our latest developments in Tanzania.
To continue our expansion in East Africa, Tschudi Tanzania Ltd. has been established in Dar es Salaam. Our latest African office will offer logistics solutions for on and offshore operations. Being local in Tanzania will further strengthen our presence on the Eastern coast of Africa.
Since Tschudi Logistics’ entry into East Africa, the market has developed rapidly and there is now an increasing need for logistics services going from Europe and China into East Africa. The establishment of Tschudi Tanzania will support our two Mozambican offices in Maputo and Pemba.
A close collaboration with other group companies
Tschudi Tanzania will, like Tschudi Mozambique, provide services for logistics, LNG transhipments and ship management. 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 are partly provided in cooperation with Tschudi Ship Management. With local staff in Dar es Salaam we are able to offer clients a better service.
Tschudi Tanzania will also help us better facilitate projects going to and from destinations in the middle of Africa for example -The Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. The expansion is a part of Tschudi’s ambition to be involved in very complex projects as well as to deliver top quality service.
Regarding the future of Tschudi’s activities in East Africa, Vestergaard comments:
“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.”
Combining Nordic values with local expertise
The day-to-day running of Tschudi Tanzania Ltd. will be headed by Thomas Vestergaard, CCO of Tschudi Logistics and Managing Director of Tschudi Mozambique. With the recent appointment, Thomas is now joined by Business Development Manager, Bernadette Mende. Furthermore, Tschudi Tanzania aims to hire an additional two staff members within the coming months.
Tschudi strives to combine its Nordic values with local know-how; a belief we refer to as ‘Nordic Roots, Global Reach’. According to Thomas Vestergaard, the launch of Tschudi Tanzania is closely tied with the appointment of Bernadette:
“Our business is all about our people, their connections, and their ability to fulfil the client’s needs. Tschudi Logistics’ comprehensive network in East Africa allows us to approach individuals – such as Mende – who are experts on local developments and know the unique demands of the region.”
