Royal Cargo, the only specialized logistics solutions provider in the Philippines with an international footprint of owned or controlled companies, spans its wings further in Asia with the recent establishment of its 12th global office in Bangkok, Thailand.
Adding to its diverse portfolio, Royal Cargo bought a controlling majority of Cargo Link Express Limited Thailand, a member of the HAE Group in the United Kingdom. Cargo Link Express, a fast-growing company based at the heart of Thailand offers high-quality supply chain and freight forwarding solutions. With the majority ownership held by Royal Cargo, Cargo Link Express has been rebranded to Royal Cargo (Thailand) Co. Ltd.
The acquisition by Royal Cargo of Cargo Link Thailand creates a strategic relationship between the HAE Group and the Royal Cargo Group and aims to improve and widen business developments in Asia and strengthen trade in Europe, Middle East & Nigeria.
Royal Cargo’s Managing Director for Southeast Asia, Mr. Uwe Dettmann welcomes the acquisition of Cargo Link Express Thailand. “We are very much excited to work with Royal Cargo and further improve our services for the benefit of our clientele here in Thailand.”
Group CEO of Royal Cargo, Mr. Michael K. Raeuber added that the Thailand operations will further strengthen the company’s business in Asia. He also noted that “We are now realizing our vision of becoming a truly global operator. We started out small and I am very happy that our determination, hard work and love for the job allowed us to grow to what we are today, and more so, will be tomorrow.”
The entire team and management of Cargo Link Express Thailand, however, will remain unchanged.
Royal Cargo’s move to expand its operations in Thailand is aligned with the company’s vision to be a world-class total logistics provider offering specialized and high quality logistics solutions.
Royal Cargo has been doing business in Asia for 40 years and employs some 1,700 knowledgeable and experienced staff. Headquartered in Manila, Philippines where they are one of the pioneering and respected companies in international freight forwarding as well as in projects and heavy lift operations, Royal Cargo has now established its own offices in China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Germany, Palau, Guam, USA , United Kingdom and soon Taiwan.
