Munich, 12.07.2023 – International freight forwarder Robert Kukla is opening a second branch office in Portugal on 15 of July 2023. The new office with three employees is located in Porto and covers the northern region of Portugal.
It was only in 2021 that the freight forwarder, which specialises in intermodal transport, opened its first branch office in Portugal. “Our goal is to generate further growth, with our focus on shortsea transports.”
Robert Kukla has developed many shortsea concepts for the trade between northwest Europe and Portugal over the past two years. Demand is particularly high for exports from the Benelux region, the UK and Scandinavia, Paula Dias explains. Overall, the 54-year-old expects an increase in cargo volume of 15 per cent to 10,000 TEU this year.
