New branch in Romania started on April 15th.
Lubos Lukac has been installed as the central Business Development Manager for the direction and expansion of offices in Eastern Europe.
QCS Quick Cargo Service is planning to open several branches in Eastern Europe in the near future. The first new office in Bucharest became operational on April 15th. The branch is managed by the experienced logistics expert Alina Moldovan.
Further such offices are to follow soon, “We have targeted three countries where we would like to open offices. Bucharest and Cluj are at the top of our list and have already been dealt with, to be followed by Bratislava in Slovakia, Budapest in Hungary and Warsaw in Poland”, reports QCS CEO Stephan Haltmayer.
QCS – Quick Cargo Service is thus following its strategy of continually building a closely meshed network. The firm is represented throughout Germany with twelve branch offices (Frankfurt, Hamburg Sea- and Air-freight, Berlin, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Munich, Hanover, Cologne, Nuremberg, Grönau and Leipzig), as well as having European offices active for many years in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, London, Basle, Zürich, Copenhagen and Szczecin.
In order to develop in the newly planned countries as quickly as possible, QCS has appointed Lubos Lukac as the central Business Development Manager. He will promote and direct the development of these new Eastern European offices. Lukac is a logistics man with many years of experience, excellent connections and the relevant knowhow in the development of East European companies.
These new locations in Eastern Europe represent a high value strategic addition for QCS. “We expect a significant expansion throughout the industry in Eastern Europe, from which we as a service provider would like to profit”, says Haltmayer. As a practical example he refers to Hungary, which in recent years has developed into an industrial hotspot, where suppliers for the automobile industry are strongly represented. Recently the amount of freight at Budapest Airport exceeded the tonnage handled at Vienna Airport for the first time ever. “We want to develop Budapest into our hub for airfreight on routes between East Asia and Eastern Europe. We will feed freight shipments from neighbouring countries into Budapest to consolidate the locally generated volumes and send them together by airfreight”, Haltmayer explains further. Furthermore, remaining close to customers is important to our company, “only so can we optimally meet our clients’ needs, through immediate proximity to production sites and by working with partners who can speak the languages of the relevant countries”, adds QCS CEO Haltmayer, summarising the most important advantages involved.
