Project logistics specialist experiences a tailwind: Hansa Meyer Global stays on growth course
Expansion of locations and business areas strengthens international sustainability.
Bremen, 10 October 2019: The transport and logistics company headquartered in Bremen has set its course for growth. In a challenging market environment, Hansa Meyer Global has succeeded in expanding its international network of 20 branches by three additional locations and establishing two new business areas. In conjunction with the acquisition of three major projects in Europe, the US and Central Asia, the project logistics group forecasts annual sales of € 165 million for the Group, an increase of more than 15 percent.
The core business of Hansa Meyer Global has been organising and carrying out worldwide transports of investment goods in the plant and energy sector for 33 years now. The focus of each individual project is the realisation of a custom transport and logistics concept across all modes of transport – from planning through implementation to follow-ups. “Personal support in connection with a high level of expertise and a regional network support our quality standards. Our customers know and appreciate us as transport architects who handle their orders reliably and innovatively. We want to meet this standard worldwide”, reports Marc-Oliver Hauswald, Managing Director of Hansa Meyer Global Holding GmbH. Strategically, the company relies on local presence and also opens up new markets through its own local branches. For example, offices were opened in Turkey and the Netherlands this year. This represents a sales offensive focused on the supra-regional development of project logistics and NCL (non-containerised load) for the BeNeLux and Middle East regions.
This year Hansa Meyer Global, together with long-time partner PT. Sarana Penida, also founded a joint venture under the name Hansa Meyer Global Indonesia in Jakarta, Indonesia, to intensify its activities in Asia. Henrique Wohltmann, Managing Director responsible for the overall Asian project logistics market of Hansa Meyer Global Holding GmbH explains: “With our recent opening in Jakarta, we now have nine locations in Asia. We see great growth potential here and are planning to set up another company in Central Asia at the beginning of next year.” The logisticians are among the founding members of the Bundesverband Deutsche Seidenstraßen Initiative e.V., which supports participation in China’s Silk Road and the Belt and Road Initiative.
The NCL business has been part of Hansa Meyer Global’s portfolio for a year now. “The decision to expand our range of services proved to be a good one. NCL has been successfully integrated and already has a considerable growth curve. With the addition of Managed Services, where we operate as a factory logistics provider, we have now positioned ourselves on three strategic pillars. We see ourselves as being in a stable position for the future,” said the two directors of Hansa Meyer Global Holding regarding the new direction. Managing Director Wohltmann has three major projects for project logistics to report on. They will start in the second half of this year in Europe, Central Asia and the USA and will run well into 2020. A look at the development in the USA underlines the international growth course. Hansa Meyer Global Transport has established itself in Houston and invested in its own heavy-load equipment several years ago. These are investments that are paying off today, as the company has since established itself as a reliable partner in the US aerospace industry and is now in the small group of registered heavy-duty logistics companies of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA for short.
In addition to the expansion of the product portfolio and locations, Hansa Meyer Global is also reviewing digital development and advancing the planning for a smart database. With an end-to-end approach, the goal is to increase the efficiency of the supply chain with optimised data logistics. Transparency and accelerated decision-making processes are benefit all stakeholders. The information platform is initially aimed exclusively at regular customers and was initiated as a development project. The platform should be launched on the market by 2020.
