4 FREIGHT FORWARDING ACTIVITIES  Mainly trucking from Italy and Greece and some northern European countries  Some container moves directly to Durres port. Most sea traffic is being handled through Italy and/or Greece  Courier service – Dominant integrator is DHL  Air freight forwarding almost non existent  Logistics services in premature phase

5 FREIGHT FORWARDING ACTIVITIES  Competition: Kuhne & Nagel (Transalbania), DHL, local forwarders concentrating mainly in road transport from Italy, Greece, Turkey and Balkans areas  Air Freight: Tirana Airport (TIA) is served mainly from AZ, TK, OA, MA, JP, OS, LH. All of the above carriers are flying with narrow body aircrafts. Efforts are being made from SBA and LH to establish a RFS to Tirana via Thessaloniki (SKG) airport.  Sea Freight: Durres is the main port. Only CMA CGM is calling Durres presently. MSC and Maersk will probably operate to Durres in the near future.

6 OBJECTIVES Aim: To develop international mind thinking freight forwarding and to become the first specialized air freight forwarder in the country. Scope: Air, sea, land freight activities at the first stage. Logistics and special cargo activities during second phase. Target: To become the biggest independent local freight forwarder in the market

7 THINKING POSITIVE…  New market for air and sea freight forwarding  Low competition in air and sea freight forwarding  Fast developing market in terms of business and economy  Cash payments  Low operational costs  Support in terms of business knowledge and finance stability from the mother company in Greece

8 Thinking Negative…  Insufficient industry knowledge from airport (mainly) and port authorities  Airport itself is acting as the sole Terminal Handling Agent and General Sales Agent for all carriers  Low capacity for inbound and outbound traffic due to aircrafts limited loading capabilities  Lack of experienced personnel in terms of industry knowledge, and sales activities  Corruption
