Logwin extends portfolio of services in Poland

Logwin is now organising global air and sea freight transports from its site in Krakow.

Aschaffenburg/Krakow – The logistics service provider Logwin has extended its sales office in Krakow. Logwin operational employees have also been based there since July, organising global air and sea freight transports for companies in the region. Increasing transport volumes, particularly in the area of exports, and Logwin's good client base prompted the company to optimise the services it offers its customers locally. The logistics specialist manages sea freight imports and exports primarily via the ports of Gdansk, Gdynia and Hamburg. The office in Krakow is connected with the entire world via the Logwin network, and the smooth operations of the global standardised IT system provide a high level of process transparency.

Krakow is an important, rapidly growing economic centre thanks to its central geographical location and well-educated population. The city in the south of Poland is also taking on increasing importance for the logistics sector. Investment in infrastructure and special funding packages are creating incentives for many foreign companies to establish operations there. "In recent years we have built up close relationships with companies in the Krakow area and accompanied their growth," explains Bartosz Hruszka, Branch Manager in Krakow.

 

Strong economy

Poland is seen as the model of economic success among the countries of Central Europe. Since the 1990s its economy has grown at an almost uninterrupted pace – even the euro crisis barely had an effect on Poland. Annual GDP growth of between 3.5 and 4 per cent is forecast over the medium term. The reasons for the good economic situation are a large internal market with growing domestic demand, well-educated and highly motivated workers, a stable political environment, support through EU funding and special economic zones offering investors favourable conditions. The country's most important trading partner is Germany, accounting for over 26 per cent of the country's exports and over 27 per cent of its imports. Furthermore, many large German companies have their own production sites in Poland and ship from there internationally.

Logwin's customers in Poland include companies from the automotive, electronics, cosmetics, fashion and textile sectors. The positive economic climate offers companies significant growth potential on the international market. "Exports are increasing across the country – and we're also seeing this in Krakow," says Bartosz Hruszka. "We speak the local languages, are familiar with the conditions on the ground and enjoy good relationships with airlines, shipping companies and customs authorities. This allows us to help our customers to open up new markets."

Logwin employs around 300 people and operates at a total of seven locations across Poland: three operational sites in Gdynia, Krakow and Warsaw, two sales offices in Wroclaw and Poznan and two warehouses in Nadarzyn and Piaseczno. The logistics service provider is one of the country's market leaders in LCL sea freight imports. Logwin bundles its customers' goods in the ports of Gdansk and Gdynia and performs consolidated transport to other parts of the country – around 20 to 30 containers per month.
