In connection with the 125th year anniversary of the Tschudi Shipping Company in 2008, it was decided to support the initiative of the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association and the Oslo Maritime Network in creating “The Global Maritime Knowledge Hub”.

The Tschudi Group has a strong presence in the North of Norway and the intention with their donation was to contribute to the development of new knowledge about High North Logistics and Industrial Development.

This resulted in the launch of The Centre for High North Logistics in Kirkenes on the 26th November 2008, a collaboration between Tschudi Shipping Company, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, DNV, Aker Arctic and StatoilHydro with the ambition to attract more partners from Russia, and other interested parties.

An ambition of the Tschudi Group, and the mission of the Centre, is to develop knowledge that will contribute to sustainable and efficient logistical solutions in the High North. Transport and logistics are key factors for future development of the oil, gas and mineral resources in the artic region seeking joint solutions between the involved nations.
