The Hong Kong-based freight forwarding and logistics company has established U-Freight Logistics in Taiwan as part of the group’s ongoing development of e-commerce logistics services around the world.
The new Taiwanese company is based in Taipei and will be an independent subsidiary of the U-Freight Group, working alongside the group’s partner in the country - U-Freight Taiwan - which has been in operation for over 30 years offering traditional air, ocean, and overland freight forwarding services.
Ms Canny Lin has transferred from U-Freight Taiwan to the new company and will oversee its operations as general manager.
Recently, U-Freight has committed to investing in redevelopments at a number of its warehouses around the world to better equip them to handle the logistics associated with the ever-growing global e-commerce business.
Comments the company’s CEO, Simon Wong: “For some time, U-Freight has been showing its commitment to developing logistics services for the e-commerce market.
“In respect of cross-border e-commerce in China, the company has already been qualified by China Customs and CIQ as a licensed Cross-border E-Commerce Enterprise, as well as a Cross-border E-Commerce Logistics Service Provider.
“We have a system that can connect e-commerce / e-shop platforms with relevant customs authorities and also delivers data transparency. This is something that will be on offer at our new logistics subsidiary in Taiwan.
“The decision to invest in a new subsidiary in Taiwan, that will focus on the country’s growth in the e-commerce arena is a further demonstration of our commitment to delivering the type of logistics services that will be required as a result of the wholesale change in the way that manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers are coming to the market.”
