As of 1st January 2021, cargo-partner has established operations with its new office in Manchester. This follows an investment in the local partner company Aztek International of which cargo-partner is now a one-third shareholder. cargo-partner’s service range in the United Kingdom includes air, sea, road, rail transport as well as comprehensive customs services to meet the demands following the UK’s exit from the EU on 1st January 2021.

Stefan Krauter, CEO of cargo-partner, explains: “This investment in cooperation with our long-time partner Aztek is our first strategic step towards establishing cargo-partner in the UK. Among other factors, our launch on January 1 was motivated by our desire to optimally support our customers with their challenges surrounding the recent Brexit. In the past month, our experienced teams in the EU and the UK have been very successful in providing express customs services for numerous clients.”

Beside supporting customers with post-Brexit customs procedures, the logistics provider has also placed a strategic focus on express solutions for highly time-critical transports. Since opening their office in the UK, the local cargo-partner team has handled several emergency shipments, including a full charter flight of car tires from Thailand and other urgent airfreight shipments for automotive customers. Other key industries the company plans to focus on include Industrial, Aerospace, Healthcare, Retail and Consumer products.

“Our new office in Manchester is a game-changing addition to our European network and provides a significant added benefit for our customers,” Stefan Krauter is convinced. “With our strong setup in Central and Eastern Europe, we can ensure smooth and efficient processes for imports and exports to and from the UK. At the moment, we are handling a lot of road freight from the EU to the UK as well as from Northern Ireland to the UK and vice versa.” Based on close cooperation with their partner Aztek International, cargo-partner can provide full coverage of the United Kingdom from three office locations in Manchester, East London and Bradford.

In addition to providing solutions for European transport, cargo-partner UK and Aztek International will establish strong trading relationships across both the cargo-partner global network and the Aztek agent network. The initial focus will be on developing new business opportunities in Asia, Indo-ASEAN as well as North and South America.
