After New York and Chicago, the international transport and logistics firm cargo-partner has taken the next steps in the USA and opened its doors in Los Angeles and Houston.  

“Many customers in our core region in Central and Eastern Europe have their corporate headquarters in the USA, where they also make final decisions. This step brings us even closer to our customers and may also give us new inspirations for our home market,” Stefan Krauter, CEO of the cargo-partner group explains this step. The company has been active in New York since 2001 and in Chicago since 2011. With the new locations in Los Angeles and Houston, the logistics group further expands its network. 

Why Los Angeles
With 2 millions of airfreight per year, the Los Angeles airport figures among the most important cargo airports in the world. Its most significant trading partner is the Asia-Pacific region with almost 600,000 tons annually, followed by Europe with over 150,000 tons. The Port of Los Angeles, together with Long Beach, covers 40% of all container traffic in the USA. “The new office bridges the gap to customers in Asia and Europe”, company management states. 

Houston – metropolis of the oil and gas industry
The Port of Houston is not only the USA’s leading export harbor but also an international frontrunner in the oil and gas industry. “cargo-partner has been offering logistics expertise in this industry sector for many years, the new branch is a logical consequence”, says Johannes Mikula, cargo-partner Regional Director of the USA.

The family business with Austrian roots offers a variety of services in the USA, from transport solutions in the domain of air and sea freight up to optimization of customers’ supply chains. “With this targeted expansion, we are now present at the most important gateways and have laid the basis for further successful steps in the future,“ Johannes Mikula states.
