The Czech transport company VCHD Cargo has founded a new branch – VCHD Cargo České Budějovice – with the experienced logistics specialist Petra Růžičková at the helm. In her new position, she will be responsible for the company’s activities in South Bohemia and beyond.

Having the town of České Budějovice as our base also allows us to serve our current and potential customers in Austria and Bavaria.
