DCT Gdansk has appointed a permanent representative located in Prague to grow its business in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Adéla Kurečková, whose career has spanned the the shipping, freight forwarding and customs clearance industries, will join the company as business development manager for the region.
Cameron Thorpe, chief executive officer, DCT Gdansk, commented: “Customers based in land-locked countries, want reliability and peace of mind when it comes to choosing an entry or exit port often hundreds of kilometres away.
“They need to ship goods with confidence, but also at a cost effective price. DCT’s Gdansk’s locational advantage brings the world’s largest ships closer to these markets than traditional ports. Using effective rail routing, this means they have an efficient alternative port, that also brings considerable cost savings.
“With Adela on board as part of the team, we will be able to strengthen what we have, but also to start building among the logistics industry an understanding and knowledge about our capacity and the options we can offer for these markets.”
