Erhardt Projects opens a subsidiary in Abu Dhabi: Erhardt Project Cargo & Logistics Middle East
Erhardt Projects is opening a subsidiary at Abu Dhabi to handle the “Project Cargo Sector” at MEATI & APAC and mentor customers on their consolidation and growth in those regions. This is in keeping with its “Be Where the Project Is, First” mission.
Erhardt Project Cargo & Logistics Middle East, the subsidiary whose capital is 100% owned by Erhardt, will handle the project cargo in one of the regions with the largest investments in developing sectors such as Oil&Gas, Refineries, Renewables and Civil Infrastructure, and with greatest growth expectations worldwide.
Igor Muñiz, Erhardt Projects General Manager, considers the opening of the Abu Dhabi subsidiary to be a highly important step in the strategy to provide a customer-oriented, tailored and integrated logistics service, as logistics chains become global.
“Mentoring our customers on their strategic projects and marketing, forging long-term relations of trust and, being present where their decision-making centres are, will allow us to continue consolidating our position as a ‘global logistics operator’,” stressed Muñiz.
In March of this year, Erhardt Projects, which was already operating on a global market, altered its corporate name to better reflect the new reality in which its subsidiary will be operating in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Erhardt Projects is convinced that one of its greatest strengths is the multiculturalism and diversity of its teams and partners. It has therefore brought international and local talent with a proven track record onboard for the new subsidiary. It is likewise establishing partnerships with local economic stakeholders to immerse the company in the local idiosyncrasies and which will help to fast-track its positioning in MEATI & APAC.
“We will continue to drive integrated services that help to connect and streamline customers’ supply chains to continue growing. This is in keeping with the planned process to expand to new markets, as set out in our strategy,” explained Muñiz.
In the year of Erhardt’s 140th anniversary, the opening of the subsidiary is a new milestone in its long history, and a new reality that contributes to its commitment to growth by means of greater internationalization of the company.
