DHL eCommerce expands in South China

DHL eCommerce is increasing its presence in South China through the introduction of e-commerce logistics services in the Fujian province.
The company also announced the expansion of its Shenzhen Distribution Center and Hong Kong Distribution Center to manage a capacity of 81m shipments a year.
According to research, China’s booming cross-border e-commerce market, estimated to be worth $839bn by 2021, is expected to dominate 40% of the global market share.
The growth momentum in southern China is particularly strong: cross-border e-commerce transactions in Fujian grew 42% to a total value of $28.1bn, which accounted for 18.5% of the provincial outbound trade in 2015.
For easier integration from order management to the shipment process, merchants across South China will be able to tap on DHL eCommerce’s Customer Web Portal for IT integration with marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, AliExpress and Wish.com, or their preferred portal platform with API integration with the help of DHL eCommerce.
Zhi Zheng, managing director, Greater China, DHL eCommerce, said: "With exports expected to make up 75% of China’s e-commerce turnover three years from now, a strong and reliable logistics framework has to be set in place to meet growing needs.
"Manufacturing and export hubs like Fujian will be the center stage of all future growth of e-commerce exports in China. DHL’s expertise in international shipping and fulfillment, along with our global network and strong e-commerce expertise will play a fundamental role in connecting China’s e-tailers with online markets across the world."
