Introducing our new office
in Croatia, Zagreb

August 4, 2021

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Martin Leljak as the Operation Manager for our newly opened office in Croatia, Zagreb. The added location will strengthen Maurice Ward Group’s footprint and offer a dedicated local team for our clients and partners in order to provide better services, expand our scope, and enable new projects.

International transport corridor

Situated in the heart of Europe, only two or three-hours flight distance to any European destination, Croatia, with its highly developed road and railway network, and the network of seaports, inland ports and airports, as well as inland waterways and intermodal terminals, represents the central link between Europe and the world. The network of modern motorways, placing Croatia together with leading European countries, provides a possibility of fast and uninterrupted travel. All of this makes Croatia an ideal transport and communication intermediary, not only among countries in the region, but between the Mediterranean and the rest of the world.

Did you know?

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.

      MWG’s humanitarian journey to Ukraine

      The current situation in Ukraine has sparked an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Ukraine is very unsafe and, in many places, people have no way out. The war also often makes it impossible for the Ukrainian government or aid organizations to get the citizens out of dangerous situations, or to offer them emergency aid.

    • Xiamen under own control

      A historic port city on Fujian's subtropical coast, Xiamen is one of the most intriguing and interesting cities in southwestern China. Located on a few islands, this port city is connected to the mainland with a few bridges and a tunnel, but due to the age-old trade contacts with other countries, it is above all a Chinese city with a diverse and international cultural past.

    • Women in logistics

      The logistics sector still has to deal with several stigmas and these make it unattractive for many women to look for a job in logistics. Work in logistics would be too physical, not very diverse and not offer enough opportunities for advancement. As with many stigmas, after a more careful look, these often turn out to be incorrect.
