JAN DE RIJK Logistics (JDR) has signed a cooperation agreement with Chinese logistics firm Shanghai Origin Supply Chain Management Co Ltd (ORIGIN) to support PACCAR China’s DAF truck manufacturing operations in the Netherlands.
“With the growing demand of global sourcing and increasing complexity of international supply chain management, this unique logistics solution put together by JDR and ORIGIN has laid a solid supply chain foundation for PACCAR and our 100-plus suppliers in China,” reveals Edward Song, managing director of PACCAR China.
“The logistics solution makes it possible for both PACCAR and our suppliers to focus on what we do the best and leave the logistical issues to the experts.”
Sebastiaan Scholte, chief executive of JDR, enthuses: “It fits perfectly in our currently expanding activities for PACCAR and our growing ambitions to expand our activities beyond Europe.
“We are sure that we will have more opportunities to work with ORIGIN and PACCAR China suppliers for other projects as well.”
Jason Huang, president of ORIGIN, adds: “The corporation with JDR and PACCAR expanded our business into Europe – leveraging our network, facilities and system capabilities and expertise in China. By joining forces with JDR we create a solution, which all parties benefit from. I look forward to expanding our business relationship with JDR into new areas, such as the booming China e-commerce logistics area.”
