Yusen Logistics (Shenzhen) has started handling import air cargo at its Dongguan Humen Bonded Logistics Park (BLP) site using feeder vessels to transfer cargo from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

In March last year, Yusen Logistics Hong Kong established its own container freight station (CFS) for export air cargo in the HKIA-operated BLP, known as the “Airport City” project.

This resulted in the launch of services to transport export air cargo to Hong Kong International Airport by feeder vessels and load them onto aircraft. 

Now, the Chinese subsidiary of Japan-headquartered Yusen Logistics has started handling air import cargo at BLP.

“Transporting cargo which arrives at Hong Kong International Airport directly to Dongguan Humen BLP by feeder vessels, we have established a shipping route for airfreight to arrive in Dongguan from overseas in a single stop. With the addition of air import cargo handling, we have begun to provide both air import and export services utilizing Dongguan Humen BLP,” said Yusen Logistics in a press release.

“Since the launch of this service in May, we have consistently handled air import cargoes from Taiwan and Thailand to meet strong transportation demand. In addition to Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou, we will also expand our functions in Dongguan as an air cargo distribution base in the Greater Bay Area in order to create new values and provide customers with more options, as the changing business environment demands further efficiency in the supply chain.”

Promoted by the Hong Kong Airport Authority (AAHK), the BLP is positioned as a logistics base station for air cargo in the Greater Bay Area, and is expected to play a role as a base of intersection connecting the Greater Bay Area to all of the world, making it easy to access not only from Guangdong Province but also from inside and outside China.
