August 11 - Deugro, the Deugro Group's international project forwarding business unit, has acquired all of Rolitrans International's and Rolitrans Indonesia's heavy haul assets.
Jakarta-headquartered Rolitrans has provided logistics services for heavy and super-heavy lift transportation in Indonesia for 35 years. According to Sven Hergemoeller, executive vice president of the Deugro Group, this strategic acquisition fits into the Deugro organisation's plan to expand its footprint in Indonesia, which it claims is one of the most promising areas in the Asia Pacific region.
Deugro says the acquired assets, including marine support, heavy haul transport equipment and installation systems, complement its existing equipment fleet.
Stephan Behrman, director of Rolitrans, said: "The combination of Deugro's global network and expertise in the field of turnkey project logistics and the experience of a specialised regional heavy lift transport company, such as Rolitrans, affords us the opportunity to become the project forwarding market leader in Indonesia."
The Rolitrans team will be integrated into the Deugro structure, and its facilities will remain operational until the end of 2017, as staff gradually transfer to Deugro's current offices. SOURCE: HLPFI
