Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS said it is planning to expand its services to the oil and gas industry, appointing a new head of the energy and projects business unit and opening an office in Stavanger, Norway.



The Scandinavian company, which offers the full range of freight forwarding and logistics services, has identified project forwarding and the energy industry as two of its main target areas for growth in 2014.



Georg Skivik Moltu, who was previously head of oil & gas and projects in Northern Europe for Panalpina, has been appointed Director Global Energy & Project Solutions and is based in the new Stavanger office.



“We have already entered into several contracts and we are confident that the market will appreciate a Scandinavian-owned logistics and transport company as a challenger to the major global logistics players,” he said.  “Like the rest of the Greencarrier offices in Scandinavia, the Stavanger office is staffed by highly experienced and knowledgeable people, many with specific oil & gas and project forwarding experience, and offers the full range of international and domestic freight forwarding and logistics services.”



Ronny Johannessen, who has decades of experience in freight forwarding and transportation, will lead the team at the Stavanger office, which opened on January 1 at Røynebergsletta 33 in the heart of the business district Forus/ Stavanger.
