The international project logistics specialist Trans Global Projects (TGP) has opened a new office in Istanbul, Turkey, at the beginning of March 2018.<\/p>\n\n

The latest addition to TGP's global network operates as Trans Global Proje Lojistik Limited Sirketi \/ Trans Global Projects Limited, Turkey. It offers the entire portfolio of TGP's services, which comprise project logistics management, ship chartering, aviation logistics, supply chain management, logistics consultancy and procurement.<\/p>\n\n

The office will be managed by Mr. Murat Aksu, an established business specialist who brings a wealth of experience and expertise, especially in shipping and chartering. <\/p>\n\n

With its new location in Turkey, TGP ensures a vital bridge in its global network between its offices in Europe and the Middle East\/Central Asian region.<\/p>\n\n

Being a large, thriving economy and geographically strategic, Turkey is an important market for the project logistics industry with numerous projects ongoing or planned. At the same time, Turkish manufacturers supply materials and equipment to construction projects worldwide, while many Turkish EPC contractors execute projects throughout the world. Furthermore, Turkey is a natural transit route for project cargo moving into Iraq, Iran and other countries surrounding the Caspian Sea.<\/p>\n\n

Says Murat Aksu, Managing Director TGP Turkey: "I am delighted to be on board with the TGP group of companies. TGP Turkey features an experienced team of industry professionals and together we will offer Turkish and international clients a project forwarding service into, from and through Turkey."<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects Ltd (TGP), a first-class provider of international logistic solutions, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018. TGP has established itself as a trusted leader in its field whilst remaining independent in ownership.<\/p>\n\n

TGP was founded on 4 January 1988 by Julian Clarke, Nick Harsant and Colin Charnock, who is the Group’s managing director. Headquartered in the UK, TGP’s service portfolio comprises activities such as project logistics management, supply chain management, ship chartering, aviation logistics, logistics consultancy and procurement, which are delivered through a network of 20 offices across the world.<\/p>\n\n

At its foundation in 1988, TGP was a subsidiary company of the Trans Global Group, one of the UK’s largest independent multi-modal transportation organisations. In 2007, Breezeline International Group Ltd, a co-investor since the start, acquired full ownership of the TGP group of companies.<\/p>\n\n

Across the past 30 years, TGP has been responsible for the successful handling of innumerable projects for the oil and gas, metal and mining, power generation and petrochemical industries, working in some of the most remote areas of the world.<\/p>\n\n

In 2015, TGP acquired the international forwarder Natco AG, which is based in Ruemlang\/Zuerich (Switzerland). With this move, TGP has complemented its service portfolio with general forwarding activities and further enhanced its position to serve the crucial European markets of Germany, France and Italy, in addition to Switzerland.<\/p>\n\n

Colin Charnock comments: “Since we started TGP on 4 January 1988, we have expanded our range of services substantially. Whilst TGP has been and will remain focused on project logistics, we have acquired partners who add general forwarding services to our Group’s portfolio. I offer a huge thank you to our loyal customers for their trust and their support. At the same time, I would like to thank everyone who has worked for and with TGP for their contribution to the durability and lasting success of the Group.”<\/p>\n\n

Asked about TGP’s further development, Charnock adds: “When we first started TGP, we operated from an airfreight office at Heathrow Airport. Since then, we have grown our presence significantly and today feature offices across the globe. Having said that, we are looking forward to further expanding our worldwide network in 2018. The past 30 years were transformative indeed – and I am sure the next decades will be just as dynamic.”<\/p>\n","friendly_url":"trans-global-projects-celebrates-dynamic-30-years","live":"1","availableFrom":"1515024000","availableUntil":null,"availableFromFormatted":"4th January 2018","authorName":null,"authorEmail":"kknight@tglobal.com","images":[{"attachedTo":"75","attachedToType":"news","id":"1670","originalFilename":"Unbekannt.png","filename":"image_1523542523_5acf69fb94f34.png","filesize":"402","assetType":"image","extension":".png","title":"Unbekannt.png","assetAttachTitle":"Unbekannt.png","description":"","assetAttachDesc":"","displayOrder":"0","ownerID":"10","uploadedBy":"kknight","uploaderEmail":"kknight@tglobal.com","attacherID":"10","attachedBy":"kknight","attacherEmail":"kknight@tglobal.com","assetTimestamp":"1523542524","attachmentTimestamp":"1523542524","attachedDateFormatted":"12\/04\/2018 15:15:24","parentID":"1669","width":"1050","height":"1024","dimensionSet":"background","cropX":"6","cropY":"0","cropWidth":"1395","cropHeight":"1362","thumbnailWidth":"206","thumbnailHeight":"200"},{"attachedTo":"75","attachedToType":"news","id":"1012","originalFilename":"TGPLogo emphasis Global.jpg","filename":"image_1404281057_53b3a0e1a1041.jpg","filesize":"420","assetType":"image","extension":".jpg","title":"TGPLogo emphasis Global.jpg","assetAttachTitle":"TGPLogo emphasis Global.jpg","description":"","assetAttachDesc":"","displayOrder":"0","ownerID":"6","uploadedBy":"joanna","uploaderEmail":"JLysakowska@tglobal.com","attacherID":"10","attachedBy":"kknight","attacherEmail":"kknight@tglobal.com","assetTimestamp":"1404281058","attachmentTimestamp":"1520950709","attachedDateFormatted":"13\/03\/2018 14:18:29","parentID":"1011","width":"1920","height":"1024","dimensionSet":"background","cropX":"0","cropY":"250","cropWidth":"2296","cropHeight":"1225","thumbnailWidth":"250","thumbnailHeight":"188"}]},{"id":"74","headline":"TGP appoints Joerg Roehl as CEO Europe","blurb":"Newsroom","content":"

TGP Commercial Director Matt Jackson commented “To us, TRACEcertification was a natural step – it really complements our existing registrations to Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 to provide a clear message to our clients that we understand what is important about their project and will deliver the project in a sustainable and ethical way.

Specialised project logistics does not always stop after the construction of an industrial project is complete.  Proving the point, Trans Global Projects office in Perth, Western Australia (WA) was awarded a contract by a major Australian mining company to provide day-to-day logistical support for the operation of its recently constructed project.<\/p>\n\n

The project itself is one of Australia’s largest iron ore mines.  It is located in the Pilbara region of WA and is a multi-billion dollar, 55 million tonne per annum production capacity plant.<\/p>\n\n

In the year since September 2015 when the support contract was awarded, hundreds of individual shipments have been managed by TGP Australia to the mine site from within the country and from overseas origins.  The remote site is, in fact, hundreds of kilometres from the nearest port and over a thousand kilometres from any major city.<\/p>\n\n

Notable shipments have been the movement of an 8.3 metre diameter bucketwheel weighing 20 tonnes shipped from China, as well as two over-dimensional feeders from within Australia.  The feeders each 25 metres long, 4.1metres wide and weighing 115 tonnes were transported over 1500 kilometres from a WA fabrication facility to the mine requiring specialised trailers booked months ahead, full traffic escorts and WA state highway authorisation.<\/p>\n\n

In addition to the movement of such over-dimensional cargoes, the mine operation has also required constant 24-hour logistical support, which has frequently included the handling of critically required cargo in plant shut-down and planned maintenance situations.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects Nigeria has been awarded the shipment of high-value data centre modules and decks for the second phase of West Africa’s largest and most advanced Tier III Data Centre.  The modules were shipped from the manufacturer’s facility in the UK to the job site in Lagos, Nigeria.<\/p>\n\n

The relatively fragile modules, each measuring 15.50m(L) x 4.50m(W) x 4.14m(H), required extreme care and attention during their door-to-door, multimodal delivery from Europe to West Africa.<\/p>\n\n

The award follows the successful shipment by TGP Nigeria in February 2013 of similar modules for the first phase of the construction project.<\/p>\n\n

TGP Nigeria provides a first-class logistics service to Nigerian and international clients, fully compliant with Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board terms.
