C H Robinson continues to build upon its commitment to serve customers in Europe by recently opening transportation offices in Prague, Czech Republic; and Bucharest, Romania. These new offices add to the company’s growing footprint in the region.
The company named Petra Vlckova as the Prague branch manager responsible for leading the office’s growth. Vlckova joins C H Robinson from ESA Logistics and GTL Logistics, where she gained experience in full truckload, less than truckload, and project cargo transportation.
Vlckova believes that having an office in Prague is crucial to developing C H Robinson’s overall road transportation services on the continent.
“Many of our existing Czech customers export or import on the Czech-Benelux and West German corridors,” said Vlckova. “I’m excited to join the C H Robinson team, leveraging transportation equipment and building relationships with local and regional carriers as we support our current and new customers.”
In the new Bucharest office, Catalin Buretea was named as C H Robinson’s branch manager. With nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, he previously held a variety of sales management positions at Codognotto and Euro Freight GmbH. Prior to that he held commercial roles at Samsung Electronics CEE and Orange Romania.
“The stable Romanian economy makes it very attractive for foreign investors to open their business doors in Romania, especially in Bucharest where over 50% of headquarters of all industries present in the Romanian market, are located,” said Buretea. “Romania has a lot of highly educated people, with a lot of experience, who I believe, will also add to C H Robinson’s competitiveness in the European marketplace.”
The opening of the Prague and Bucharest offices, are the third and second recent transportation office openings for C H Robinson in Eastern Europe, following the opening of a Bratislava, Slovakia office in 2016.
