Bogdan Gavrilović, Managing Director, WTO Serbia

Transport and Logistics Without Borders

World Transport Overseas is one of the fastest-growing logistics companies in Eastern Europe, with branches in Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia and Taiwan

WTO’s policy is focused fully on meeting and exceeding all client requirements in the field of transport and logistics, and on providing additional services related to this activity. The company can this year boast of having new offices and receiving a valuable international accolade.

World Transport Overseas – Winner at the Forbes Business Awards 2024. Does this accolade confirm that you are on the right track?

— We are excited to announce that the WTO Group has been awarded the prestigious Forbes Business Award for services for 2024, repeating our success of 2020. The award received by WTO Bulgaria CEO Svetlin Pešev confirms our commitment to business and innovations in the logistics sector.

We express huge thanks to our dedicated team, whose hard work and perseverance made this possible. We are also immensely grateful to our clients and partners for their continued trust and support. This award motivates us to continue pushing boundaries in transport, logistics and supply chain solutions, ensuring a top-notch service that meets our customers’ dynamic needs.

WTO opened a branch in China in 2020 and offices in Skopje and Thessaloniki in 2021, as well as in Pristina and Piraeus in 2022… Are you stopping there?

— In line with our “Vision 2030” strategy at the level of the group, we have successfully advanced in accordance with the strategy’s plan and opened new offices in 2024. In addition to the two previously opened offices in China, in Shanghai and Ningbo, we have successfully opened new offices in Shenzhen and Chongqing. Chongqing is particularly interesting because of its railway connections towards Europe.

It is with great pleasure and pride that we introduce our new LCL railway service from China directly to Belgrade, which covers all Balkan countries

Besides the aforementioned offices in China, we also have a newly opened office in Bosnia and Herzegovina, specifically in Sarajevo, headed by our dear colleague and great expert in logistics and transport, Vladan Kuharević. We expect very good results and exceptionally good future intercompany cooperation, and the joining of this office signifies a significant expansion of the WTO Group, which now employs over 300 staff at 25 locations across 12 countries.

New offices aren’t the only thing you can boast of… Don’t you also have a new railway service?

— It is with great pleasure and pride that we introduce our new LCL railway service from China directly to Belgrade, which covers all Balkan countries. This solution is unparalleled on the market of Southeast Europe! Our new consolidated railway service from China includes numerous advantages, including a direct connection, as the train from Xi’an to Belgrade operates non-stop on a weekly service basis and a fast transit time – transport from the Xi’an railway station to Belgrade takes only 21 days. Among the most significant advantages of this service is cost-effectiveness, as the costs are significantly lower compared to air transport, which has a competitive transit time, not to mention the reliability of the regular schedule provided by the regional leader in LCL business.
