Shenzhen, a special economic zone, is located in the fast-growing Zhujiang (Pearl River) Delta area,, and near Hong Kong, a key worldwide economic and logistics hub. With its proximity to the inland cities of Dongguan and Guangzhou, where many foreign corporations, including Japanese firms, are building factories. Shenzhen is also the gateway to Southern China. MOL Logistics (Hong Kong) has earned an excellent reputation for reliable service, and Shanghai HuaJia International Freight Forwarding recently acquired a first-class international freight forwarding agent's license. By teaming up to open the Shenzhen branch office, they will be able to make and receive payments in Chinese currency and offer services such as air cargo transport, ocean transport, warehousing, land transport, customs clearance, bill of lading (B/L) issuance, and so on.
Our future approaches:
The new business structure in China allows the company to offer a new level of service, taking advantage of Shanghai HuaJia International Freight Forwarding's acquisition of a first-class international freight forwarding agent's license. In addition, China's membership in the World Trade Organization and the conclusion of the Closer Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) with Hong Kong are expected to create a range of new business opportunities, particularly in Hong Kong and throughout Southern China. From this point of view, the opening of the Shenzhen Branch will assist customers with an expanded range of logistics services.
MOL Logistics will continue working to meet diversifying customer needs by enhancing its service network in the rapidly growing Chinese market and around the world.
