Girteka, which manages the largest own truck fleet in Europe, condemns the Kremlin’s war in Ukraine and the violence against anyone. The company plans to continue its focus on business development in Europe and Scandinavia, separating its Eastern European operations and changing the geography of its transportation operations.
“Our focus now is on the health, safety, and income of the families of our colleagues. Furthermore, since the first day of aggression, we provide financial and other assistance to our colleagues, who were affected by this agression,” says Edvardas Liachovičius, CEO of Girteka Holding.
The main activity of the group of companies – transportation of full loads in the EU and Scandinavia – already accounted for 80% of the company’s revenue in 2021. No changes are expected for this activity – it is planned to continue to successfully achieve the goal of being among the 10 largest logistics companies in Europe.
When the war broke out, the company suspended investment in Russia and did not provide services to companies that are under sanctions. In addition, part of the Eastern business will be separated from Girteka, and the independent business plans to focus on cargo transportation between other Asian countries (China, Kazakhstan, etc.) and Europe.
Having started operations from one truck in 1996, Girteka has grown to more than 20,000 employees and 9,000 trucks transporting international cargoes in Europe and Scandinavia.
Girteka is the largest transport company in Europe managing its own truck fleet, transporting more than 960,000 full loads of cargo per year. The company has grown from 600 trucks in 2010 to more than 9,000 trucks currently transporting cargo in Europe and Scandinavia. With a team of more than 20 thousand employees, Girteka Logistics is a leading transport company chosen by world-famous brands.
