New China facilities for cargo-partner
22 / 06 / 2023
Logistics firm cargo-partner has continued to expand its network in China with the addition of four new facilities.
The company, which is in the process of being purchased by forwarder Nippon Express, has opened a new pharma facility in Shanghai, a new warehouse in Guangzhou, a new office in Nanjing and moved into an expanded office in Chongqing.
“The new Pharma Competence Center now serves as an operational hub for exporters and importers who require GDP-compliant transport solutions for medicinal products. cargo-partner’s on-site experts can provide not only temperature-controlled air and ocean freight services, but also temperature-controlled trucking for the first and last mile,” cargo-partner said in a press release.
The new facility in Guangzhou is in addition to warehouses in Shanghai, Chengdu, Kunshan and Hong Kong. It will primarily cater to high-tech demand, but the company also hopes to attract e-commerce, industrial and consumer goods volumes in the future.
There are also plans to expand the facility next year.
The new customer service and sales office in Nanjing is one of several cargo-partner offices in the Yangtze River Delta region and will offer airfreight, seafreight, land transport, contract logistics and value-added services.
“Nanjing is a major logistics gateway in eastern China, situated at the confluence of several key logistics hubs, including Nanjing Lukou International Airport, Nanjing Port as well as important railway hubs connected to the main railway networks,” the company said.
On the move to bigger premises in Chongqing, the company explained that the city is a crucial transport and logistics hub in central China with airports ranking in the top ten in China for throughput.
The city’s port is also large and the Chongqing-Duisburg connection is a cornerstone of the growing trans-Eurasian railway network.
Luca Ferrara, chief executive of cargo-partner, said: “As a dynamic and rapidly evolving market, China presents immense opportunities for the cargo-partner group.
“Our new Pharma Centre in Shanghai, our new warehouse in Guangzhou, and our new office facilities in Chongqing and Nanjing are further important puzzle pieces in our constantly growing network in China.
“Our strategic decision to establish a strong presence throughout China aligns perfectly with our long-term goals of improving our operational efficiency, fostering deeper relationships with our local partners and customers, and unlocking new opportunities for continued growth.”
