Tigers German expansion continues as part of global freight growth strategy


Tigers Germany opens new office in Frankfurt, expanding the Group’s footprint ahead of the global launch of its eShop

Hong Kong, Monday, 9th July 2018 – Tigers has opened a new office at Frankfurt Airport, Germany to support the Group’s global freight growth strategy, and to act as a gateway for Europe by creating air freight consolidation products, starting with the trade lane between Germany and South Africa.

The new office, the Group’s third in Germany, is headed by Marc Acksteiner, and offers the full range of Tigers’ core services, including international freight forwarding and Customs brokerage, as well as its pioneering EU-China rail freight service, Tiger Rail.

“The opening of our new office at Frankfurt Airport aligns with our global strategy to expand our freight activities and gain new volumes for our global freight network,” said Andreas Niklasch, Managing Director, Germany & Switzerland, Tigers.

“By consolidating multiple shipments into a single one, for example from Frankfurt to South Africa, which is a key region for us, we create competitive solutions for our customers.”

Tigers is gearing up to the global launch of its online marketplace, the Tigers eShop, which will optimise its e-commerce offering to B2B and B2C customers worldwide.

The Group’s Cologne e-commerce fulfilment centre, as well as its eTigers facility in Rotterdam, have both doubled in space in less than a year due to increasing demand.

“The new Frankfurt office will boost our global offering, especially in the key verticals and markets, and help strengthen commerce between the two regions,” said Paul Lawrence, Managing Director, South Africa, Tigers.

Tigers Germany works across a range of industries including industrial goods, aerospace, automotive, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, high-tech, perishables, cosmetics, and fashion among others.

The Hong Kong headquartered supply chain specialist has opened a number of offices and warehouses worldwide this year, including in Riverside, California and Dallas, Texas, USA and Shanghai, China to support the global launch of its eShop.

Social Responsability

Tigers is a ‘Caring’ Company – We care for our people and our communities.  Our people are our biggest asset. We encourage open communication and continuous learning.  “Savages”  is  our  in-house leadership development program to nurture our employees to become future leaders.

Charity Contributions – We support Ubuntu Pathways in South Africa and Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust in India. We do this because it can take a child from learning how to create a simple spreadsheet, to coding a piece of software that could change the world.

Carbon Footprint – We minimize our CO2 footprint by stretching efficiency to its ultimate limits across our services portfolio. For instance, our hybrid Ship+ product decreases the reliance on air-only shipments and can reduce carbon footprint by as much as 50%.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
