Michael Zankel, Regional Manager East Asia at Gebrüder Weiss

​​​​The globally active logistics company Gebrüder Weiss is going to open an Air & Sea office in the South Korean capital of Seoul effective June 1, 2020. The international logistics expert takes this step to tap another major Asian market that is attractive in terms of both export and import business as a part of its expansion strategy. Customers in Europe and the United States who are maintaining intensive business relationships with South Korea will benefit from this new presence with access to additional experts and channels in the Asian markets. The new office in Seoul is a logical addition to the Gebrüder Weiss Asian network, which currently consists of 32 locations.

Logistics hot spot: high-tech metropolis

For some time already, Gebrüder Weiss (GW) has been working on developing a business solution to serve many of the world’s most prestigious high-tech companies housed in South Korea. In spite of the difficulties caused by the coronavirus crisis, this expansion project was completed as scheduled. Overall, 15 Air & Sea experts are going to work at the new location in Seoul, implementing customized transport and logistics solutions for clients. “Our goal is to grow with our customers and to apply uniform standards in our work around the globe,” says Michael Zankel, Regional Manager East Asia at Gebrüder Weiss. “As we examine our global supply chains, South Korea is an important component in this respect.”
