Taiwan, 21 November 2011 - Weiss Röhlig, a leading global provider of logistics services, has launched a weekly consolidation service between Hamburg and Taiwan to meet growing demand for imported products from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
“Many of our customers in Taiwan have growing business ties with Poland and the Czech Republic and this service will support this demand,” said Holger Stoelker, Managing Director, Taiwan, Weiss Röhlig.
Earlier this year Weiss Röhlig launched a consolidation service from Taiwan to the Czech Republic, the first company to offer this service.
“This is an indicator that bilateral trade is being developed in eastern and central Europe, driven by Taiwan investment in the manufacturing sector in this emerging market,” added Stoelker.
Weiss Röhlig has scheduled trucking and rail services from all major European ports into Eastern Europe supported on the ground through the company’s network of offices in Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine.
