Toyota relies increasingly on Gebrüder Weiss in Kazakhstan


Gebrüder Weiss is expanding its partnership with Toyota Motor in Kazakhstan. The logistics provider has been handling replacement parts distribution to the Japanese automaker’s dealers since this year in Almaty, the country’s largest city. Existing services include the transportation of automobiles throughout Kazakhstan, daily deliveries of parts within Almaty city and warehouse logistics.

The Kazakh market is significant for Toyota. In 2021, the automaker sold around 14,000 vehicles, equivalent to approximately twelve per cent of the country’s total automotive market. “We want to continue growing in Kazakhstan. For this, we need a reliable logistics partner familiar with the local situation. Gebrüder Weiss has been providing us with high-quality service for over a decade,” says Damira Alpysbayeva, Logistics Manager at Toyota Motor Kazakhstan.

As the most important Central Asian trading partner, Kazakhstan is also an attractive growth market for companies from Germany and Austria. Austrian export goods include pharmaceuticals, machinery, measuring instruments, paper and metal goods, mainly used in the petroleum industry. Gebrüder Weiss has been represented in Kazakhstan since 2007 and is now an established logistics service provider for industry and trade. The service portfolio includes land transports (including multimodal), air and ocean freight services, customs, warehouse logistics and supply chain management.

Central logistics hub on the New Silk Road

Kazakhstan is becoming increasingly important as a key handling point on the New Silk Road route – all the more so as alternative transport routes are currently in high demand due to the sanctions against Russia. The country also benefits from its favourable geographical location, which makes Kazakhstan an ideal hub for China’s trade in goods with Europe and West Asia. Gebrüder Weiss also operates locations along the New Silk Road in Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Uzbekistan, and China.
