deugro, the deugro Group’s international project forwarding business unit, has acquired all of P.T. Rolitrans International’s and P.T. Rolitrans Indonesia’s heavy haul assets and will be employing most of their personnel, including their management teams.

Founded in 1982, Jakarta-headquartered P.T. Rolitrans brings to the table 35 years of experience in providing professional logistics services for heavy and super heavy lift transportation in Indonesia. According to Sven Hergemoeller, Executive Vice President of the deugro Group, this strategic acquisition fits into the deugro organization’s plan to considerably expand its footprint in Indonesia, one of the most promising areas in the Asia Pacific region.

The acquired assets, including marine support and heavy haul transport equipment, as well as installation systems, perfectly complement deugro’s existing equipment fleet, which is available for strategic deployment at select project locations in Indonesia and around the world.

deugro has developed a seamless plan to ensure a smooth transition for the P.T. Rolitrans team as they integrate into the deugro structure. P.T. Rolitrans’ facilities will remain operational until the end of 2017, as staff will gradually be transferred to deugro’s current offices.

Stephan Behrman, Director of P.T. Rolitrans, is looking forward to an exciting time. “The combination of deugro’s global network and expertise in the field of turnkey project logistics and the experience of a specialized regional heavy lift transport company, such as P.T. Rolitrans, affords us the opportunity to become the project forwarding market leader in Indonesia. The two companies’ visions and DNA will complement each other.”

“Our agreement cements our aspiration to provide quality and professional services to our diverse group of customers,” Sven Hergemoeller commented.
