SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 20 (SeeNews) - Sofia-based transport and logistics company Gopet Trans has extended its portfolio by launching an airfreight division on November 18, Anda Draghici, CMO at Gopet Trans, told SeeNews on Wednesday.

With this new service, the company now covers all transportation modes: land - road and rail, sea and air, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

Gopet Trans, which also offers warehousing and distribution services, is consolidating its market position as a one-stop shop for integrated transport and logistics solutions for local and international clients, it said. 

The newly-launched Gopet Trans division along with its network of partners enables the logistics company to cover 193 countries and ship to and from more than 800 airports.

Gopet Trans' airfreight service offers collection from point of origin, handling, customs operations, air shipment, clearance at
the destination and delivery to door.

"Given the small capacity of Sofia airport and our goal to optimise transit times and reduce offered rates, together with standard airfreight services, Gopet Trans proposes combined solutions – air and road - from and to USA, Canada, the Far East and the Middle East, Russia and CIS countries," the company said, adding that it also offers regular weekly import consolidation services from several airports based in China to Athens and
Sofia airport.

Going forward, the company plans to further diversify its services and increase its business agility by continuous digitalisation.

Gopet Trans, which has been active on the local market for about 25 years, offers road, intermodal, sea and logistics services to more than 5,000  clients in Bulgaria and abroad. It is also active in Greece, Romania, Poland and Spain, where it has offices. 

The group has 400 employees in its five offices and had a turnover of 288 million levs ($162.8 million/147.2 million euro) in 2018.
