With the new Singapore-Tbilisi LCL route, Gebrüder Weiss is connecting the South-East and East Asian markets even more closely with the Near East and Central Asia. “In Singapore, we are combining the freight of all neighbouring Asian sea ports and shipping the goods each week in consolidated containers via the Georgian port city of Poti directly to Tbilisi,” explains Vojislav Jevtic, Global Product Manager Seafreight at Gebrüder Weiss Air & Sea. Thanks to the direct connection to one of Asia’s most important container ports, the site opened in Tbilisi last year is becoming a central hub in the Caucasus region. “The new line is of great importance, and not just for Georgia. The bordering landlocked countries of Azerbaijan and Armenia can now also be serviced from all over Asia with regular LCL services,” Jevtic continues.
More flexibility in sea freight transport
For Gebrüder Weiss Georgia, the introduction of the Singapore-Tbilisi LCL service represents the consolidation of another important strategic step – integration into the global sea freight groupage transport network of Gebrüder Weiss: GWconsolution. “With the LCL service from Singapore to Tbilisi, we can offer our customers an even greater spectrum of individual and efficient concepts for the transport of their sea freight. And we plan on extending our range of services in this area even further,” says Vojislav Jevtic.
