Contargo comes to Bremen  

Bremen, 11 September 2019 – On 1 September 2019, Contargo GmbH & Co. KG opened its office in Bremen. By adding this location, the container hinterland network aims to strengthen its presence in the catchment area of the German North Sea ports.

The new office is located in the premises of NWL (Norddeutsche Wasserweg Logistik GmbH), a sister company of Contargo. Contargo’s representative on the spot is Philip Freytag. Before joining Contargo as a Sales Representative, Freytag, who is 39, worked for twelve years in various capacities with a medium-sized seaport forwarding agency in Hamburg.

The Bremen office is managed by Contargo in Hamburg, and up to now customers in the Bremen/Bremerhaven region have been looked after from there. “We are glad that our customers now have a contact directly on the spot”, says Christian Schäfers, Regional Sales Manager Northern Ports at Contargo. “By establishing this local presence in the Bremen and Bremerhaven area, we aim to market our trimodal products more effectively and thus acquire new customers for our container network.”
