CH Robinson expands European presence with Slovakia office

CH Robinson has expanded its European presence with the opening of a transportation office in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Slovakia was chosen as a key strategic growth area due to the increasing number of foreign and domestic companies developing their businesses in the region. Arkadiusz Glinka, CH Robinson’s director of transportation Eastern Europe, said: “Central and Eastern Europe’s upward trend in trade has become an industrial proverb for the region’s wider economic rise. We are confident about our investments in this region, since the stable economic landscape is generating considerable growth in the transport sector.”

Newly appointed branch manager Michal Sojka will be responsible for leading the office’s growth. He joins the company from Blaguss Slovakia, having previousy held a number of management positions at DHL Slovakia. He stated: “Slovakia is often seen as the centre of Europe, and one of the bridges between Eastern and Western Europe. Over the past few years, the area has upgraded its infrastructure, making the transportation of goods to and from Slovakia more and more accessible. We have a great, qualified workforce, and I’m excited to grow this business with the CH Robinson team.”
