Greencarrier Freight Services, one of the Nordic region’s largest privately owned global transport companies, has opened an office in Minsk, Belarus.

The company has expanded through both organic growth and acquisition since it was founded in 2000 and Belarus marks the 14th country where it has its own offices.

 “Our strategy is to develop our services in line with customer demand. We are expanding our office structure, especially in Eastern Europe, to ensure we can offer the best possible customer service,” said Peter Nevhagen, CEO, Greencarrier Freight Services. “It is a natural expansion of our business in Lithuania to set up an office in Minsk. We have managed cargo flows into and out of Belarus over the last few years and have studied the market carefully. We know that now the time is right to launch Greencarrier Freight Services BEL.”

The Belarus operation will initially run as a subsidiary of Greencarrier’s Lithuanian office which is headed by managing director Marijus Zilinskas.

“The intention is to strengthen our existing products by being closer to our customers,” Zilinskas said. “We will offer the full range of services including containerised ocean freight, ro-ro ocean services and air freight. We will have our own consolidation services from China and other LCL services through our worldwide network of agents.”

Greencarrier expects the main markets for road freight – from a single pallet to full truck loads – to be to/from Scandinavia, U.K., Baltics and Poland.

Aurimas Digrevicius, Greencarrier’s branch manager in Vilnius for the last four years, will run the Belarus operation on the ground and he is currently recruiting staff for the Minsk office.

Nevhagen said he expects Belarus to be another successful addition to Greencarrier Freight Services. “We make sure that we have the resources internally and the customer base externally when we make the decision to expand into another country. Our most recent launch was in Poland in 2012 when we acquired Transpoint International and that has proved an excellent move for both Greencarrier and our customers.”
