First activities for the Asian market

Karachi, Pakistan - 15 January 2019 –The first tank containers of Van den Bosch DMCC have arrived in the port of Karachi, Pakistan. For Van den Bosch this event marks the start of business activities for the Asian market.

Export of ethanol
Together with a local partner, Van den Bosch arranged a number of foodgrade tanks at the depot of PTO (Pakistan Terminal Operators). The containers will be mainly used for the export of ethanol. Pakistan is one of the most important exporters of ethanol in the world and therefore forms an emerging market for Van den Bosch DMCC in Dubai, from where the deep sea activities of Van den Bosch are coordinated.

New opportunities
The expansion to Pakistan represents a new milestone in the further development of the deep sea activities of Van den Bosch. Over the past years Van den Bosch has acquired a leading position in the EMEA region. Now initial steps have been taken to enter Asia. Bart van de Vorst, General Manager of Van den Bosch DMCC in Dubai, is very excited: “We have received a lot of positive feedback about the expansion to Pakistan. The Asian continent offers great opportunities to develop our global network and will create new possibilities for our customers.”
