NYK establishes presence in Kazakhstan

Tokyo: NYK Logistics Rus, an NYK Group company in Russia, has opened a representative office in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan. This is the first office to be established in Kazakhstan by the NYK Group and is expected to 'proactively developing logistics business in the country for automotive as well as other industries.'

In October 2009, the NYK Group company NYK Holding Europe took a 25% stake in Tranco Terminal, an Almaty-based car-terminal operating company, and began to participate in business operations in the country.

By providing car terminal services to local customers, the office expects to be able to eventually expand Tranco Terminal's business. Additionally, the NYK Group will strive to develop new business in the local market by considering car transport services from ports in China and Europe to Kazakhstan, taking advantage of trans Siberian railway service both ways East and West, and the provision of general logistics services for wide number of industries, including consumer electronics, retail and FMCG.  [12/03/10]
