UTA Opens a New Branch in the Czech Republic

UTA Opens a New Branch in the Czech Republic

  • Further strengthening of its European presence
  • New location in Prague

Kleinostheim/Prague – 20 May 2016. UNION TANK Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG (UTA) is strengthening its international organisation. The fuel and service card provider already opened its own office in Romania in November last year, and now a new office in Prague has started operations. Starting 1 May 2016, the Czech market is being served more intensively with its own sales site.

"The Czech Republic is an important growth market with great potential thanks to its central location and strong industry," Gabriel Moulènes explained, who is responsible as area manager for the development of UTA business in Central and Eastern Europe. After all, there were already 31,800 transport companies with more than 105,000 lorries over 3.5 tons in the Czech Republic in 2014, and more than 5,700 freight forwarders used fuel and service cards according to a Consultic study. "Because our customers expect comprehensive, cross-border complete offers and services from one source, it was natural for us to enhance our supply offer in the Czech Republic," Mr. Moulènes stated. In this context, UTA sees great potential in the cooperation with its strong business partners Daimler and Edenred, both of which are successful with their products in the Czech Republic and operate on the market as an additional sales channel.

According to the Logistics Performance Index of the World Bank, the Czech Republic is one of the most attractive logistics sites on the continent and handles almost a third of its foreign trade with Germany, which is its most important trading partner.The volume of goods that are transported across their common borders is increasing correspondingly. In addition, the Czech Republic is striving for greater geographical diversification of its exports with growth in markets outside the European Union, via which UTA expects further internationalisation and an increased market share.

More than 84,000 customers can get petro, pay tolls and benefit from many more mobility services throughout Europe without cash using the UTA card system. The UTA network includes 52,000 stations in 40 European countries. In the Czech Republic, UTA currently has more than 1,200 acceptance points, including almost 850 petrol stations of the brands Slovnaft, OMV, Benzina and CEPRO as well as many independent stations.
