Running a new business in an unstable market
Off for a flying start. Since the opening August 2021, Tschudi Lines has succeeded in operating business in the European short sea market. During the first couple of months, the newly established short sea/liner agent team received several regular bookings on a weekly basis. This has formed a great fundament for further development of the business. Per Møller, who is the Managing Director of Tschudi Lines, shares a few thoughts on the current situation, which is heavily influenced by the unstable market, and the time to come.
Tschudi Mozambique grows - new office in Pemba
The Mozambique adventure began with the opening of our office in Maputo in 2019. Since then, the market has been exceptionally instable with severe impacts posed by firstly, the pandemic and secondly, by the violent disturbances in the northern part of the country. However, the pandemic is now coming to an ease – and increased military presence in the north has stabilized the situation in Cabo Delgado. The office in Maputo has joggled many challenges during the first couple of years, nevertheless, the team has succeeded in building a stable business against all odds. New times are now arising, and this forms the basis for growing Tschudi Mozambique by adding a new office in Pemba.

The turbines had to be transported from Norrköping in Sweden to Kandla in India, via Denmark. Port of Grenaa in Denmark was chosen as hub due to its central location in Northern Europe, ideal navigation conditions along with the possibility of heavy lift and storage.
A convoy of 40 vehicles
What does it take to get five massive digesters and one accumulator from Lappeenranta and Teuva in Finland to Virton in Belgium? The answer is quite a lot. Especially when the route includes passing dozens of roundabouts, going under thousands of low hanging electric cables, and passing through several small villages and towns in southern Belgium.

This has included everything from recruitment of suitable staff and managing a fully catered camp for up to 30 people, to supplying all equipment needed to support the successful exploration activities.
Massive diesel oil tanks
While transporting oversized cargo is far from foreign to our team in Estonia, the recent transportation of 4 massive diesel oil tanks was out of the ordinary. The size of cargo demanded for a special vessel and a 600-ton mobile crane. However, careful and detailed planning ensured that everything went according to plan and cargo was delivered safely and on time!
