In February 2020, the AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG Corporate Group opened its first US office on the country’s east coast. New York City was chosen as the transport and logistics provider’s American launchpad. The metropolis has 5 port terminals and is a global logistics center for freight traffic between Europe and the United States.
AsstrA's aspirations to become an international transport and logistics leader has led the company to expand across more borders to be closer to clients.
USA Regional Director Viacheslav Tureiko shares his comments:
“One of the company’s most important strategic goals is to support more trade flows for customers importing and exporting goods to and from the United States. We are focused on winning a greater share of this important market.”
The AsstrA team offers customized logistic solutions for key routes involving the USA, especially round trips between America and Russia, Germany, Italy and Poland. AsstrA’s proprietary Trade Lane Management system guarantees door-to-door service at competitive prices.
“Opening an office in New York is the first step towards achieving these goals. Having our own personnel in close proximity to direct American suppliers will help build trust with our customers. Thanks to our network of 40 directly managed and representative offices across 21 countries, we guarantee round-the-clock support, full visibility of cargo status en route, and a wide range of transport options to achieve of the optimal balance of affordability and speed. Our clients can continue to count on receiving top-quality service and full peace of mind,” adds Viacheslav Tureiko.
