Canadian time-critical logistics provider, Expedite Plus, has expanded its services in China with the opening of a new office in Hong Kong and service centres in Shanghai and Beijing.
Located at the CS Logistics Centre, Kwai Chung NT, Hong Kong, the company said the office will serve as a hub in Asia and strengthen its ability to manage urgent shipments throughout Asia and the rest of the world.
"Continued economic growth in Asia, global competition, and the changing purchasing behaviour of the market, are all fuelling demand for our services and we expect the West to Asia and intra-Asian lanes will become exponentially busy in the years to come," said Dwayne Hihn, president, Expedite Plus. "Our presence in China broadens our coverage in Asia which enables us to meet those demands. Speed and reliability are essential in business today and we are one of only a handful of companies with the expertise and reach to manage shipments across the world at a moment's notice."
Expedite Plus' offers an onboard courier delivery service that provides emergency shipping services, enabling urgent packages to be hand-delivered anywhere in the world.
"At Expedite Plus we know the meaning of time-critical delivery," added Devon Bovenlander, managing director, Expedite Plus Asia. "It can mean getting your automotive part on time, or losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in production downtime.”
