Freight forwarder U-Freight Group (UFL) has promoted two key executives based at its headquarters in Hong Kong.

Amy Wong has been promoted to chief administrative officer, tasked with supervising the day-to-day operations, human resources and administration of UFL offices.

She will also assist chief executive Simon Wong in analysing the operations of UFL’s global network as part of “devising and implementing strategic initiatives to help move the company forward”.

Wong joined U-Freight 1n 1982 and is already a member of the executive management team as vice president of administration and training.

Meanwhile, Joey Cheung has been named general manager of U-Freight’s Hong Kong office, overseeing all the group’s businesses and facilities in Hong Kong.

Cheung joined the company in 1997 and has worked at many of UFL’s international stations, within various of the company’s subsidiaries.

This includes senior sales and business development positions in Shanghai, New York and Hong Kong. In 2005, Cheung joined a newly formed China Team in the company’s Hong Kong headquarters office.

Simon Wong said: “Both Amy and Joey are long-standing employees of the company and have performed proactively in the group’s business development activities.

“Their careers with us have mirrored the exciting developments within international logistics, including China’s enhanced position in global trade, in which UFL has played a significant part and continues to do so, as well as the development of cross border e-commerce logistics, which is very important to our future.

“Their promotions are a reflection of the valuable contribution that they have made to the company’s development. U-Freight has always had a firm belief in promoting from within. Given the collective experience of both Amy and Joey, I’m sure that they are more than capable of helping drive forward our position in the various trades that we serve.”
