Shih, newly appointed as chief executive, management, said: “Dimerco Express Group is in the process of disruptive innovation, in terms of organisational restructure, specialisation, teamwork and the application of intelligent technology.

“We believe that the new EMB structure and clear business divisions will enable us to be more professionally focused on our key services.

“To upgrade our IT system to Mobile Intelligence Logistics Service Platform by leveraging latest Artificial Intelligence Technology, application of Big Data with App, reflects our commitment to provide a best-in-class logistics service for operation and management excellency and optimization of service to customers.”

Dimerco’s new structure sees George Chiou, president of Dimerco Express Corp, representing the airfreight division responsible for China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and North East Asia.

The president of GCR Ocean Freight, Johnny Kao, will represent the ocean freight division in the same regions as Chiou.

Shih will be responsible for the airfreight division in South East Asia, Australia, the US, Canada and Europe, while Herbert Liou, president of Dimerco Express (USA) Corp, will represent the ocean freight division in those regions.

Wendy Chien, managing director, will represent the contract logistics division across both geographies.
