DSV Indonesia opens new office in Medan, Sumatra


DSV has opened a new office in Medan on the Indonesian Island of Sumatra. The office will take operational responsibility for all clients in the area and shipments in and out of the island. The location was chosen for its potential to gain new business and because it is situated close to an international airport and several ports.

Rich in oilfields and with many palm oil plantations on the island, Sumatra exports many products. Sumatra’s pulp and paper production is a dominant industry and most of the country’s rubber, coffee, tobacco, pepper, tea, pineapple and betel nut finished products are exported from its international gateways in Sumatra to the world.

Christian Schindler, Managing Director, Air & Sea, Indonesia, commented on the new office: “An office in Medan brings us much closer to the market and to customers. Many industries export large volumes from here, giving us a good basis for growing the pipeline and for future growth through increased local commercial efforts and in collaboration with our global DSV network.”
