C.S.CARGO expands into Russia
At the beginning of the year, C.S.CARGO opened C.S.GARGO Russia s.r.o., a subsidiary
through which business operations will be expanded into Russia and CIS countries (Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, and others). The opening of the Hradec Králové-based subsidiary included hiring staff to work under the leadership of Ludmila Hlavsová who has been appointed the subsidiary's Managing Director.
Aleš Willert, CEO of C.S.CARGO a.s. says: "We have decided to expand eastward in view of the constantly growing business potential offered by Russia and CIS countries. C.S.CARGO Russia will be directed by Ludmila Hlavsová, an experienced manager with a proven track record of organizing transport and logistical services in Russia and other eastern countries."
Hlavsová worked for ATL CZ for 11 years, including 10 years in the position of Managing Director. She transformed the originally small, little known company into a prosperous business specializing in transport to Russia and other eastern countries, including logistical services in the Russian territory. Her main interests include sports – cycling, skiing, and golf. She speaks fluent Russian and English.
C.S.CARGO Russia s.r.o. will specialize in transport and logistical services between Europe, the Czech Republic in particular, and Russia and other CIS destinations. C.S.CARGO Russia s.r.o. will rely on its intimate familiarity with the local market in dealing with business, administrative, and customs specifics that exist in the region.
Hlavsová explains: "Together with C.S.CARGO Russia sales specialists, my main task will be to put into use my experience and knowledge with a view to developing logistical services on eastern markets. The objective is to strengthen further the C.S.CARGO Group's position on both the European and Russian markets."
