German software provider PTV Group is expanding its international business in the transport and logistics sectors, with the appointment of a new managing director for its local branch office in Shanghai, China.
With experience in all facets of transportation, Oscar Jiang Jing is charged with boosting the group's business in the Chinese market. In addition to the existing office in Shanghai, a further two regional offices will be established in Beijing and Chengdu within the next three years.
The company is already established in Asia and sees opportunities in the Chinese market in strategic transport planning, the establishment of traffic management systems that can process real-time data as well as in the optimisation of roads and public transport network, and shared mobility services.
“We see huge demand in China. All cities in China are currently being asked to make mobility for their citizens fit for the future with the help of attractive public transport and modern transport services. There is immense interest in learning from us as an experienced mobility provider from the west how expertise can be built up on-site and innovative technologies used for this”, says Vincent Kobesen, CEO of the PTV Group.
