TNT Express opens Hong Kong hub

TNT Express has opened a 99,087 sq ft distribution facility in Hong Kong to provide Asia-Pacific regional distribution and value-added logistics services to the fashion industry.

The fashion hub is located at the ATL logistics centre in Hong Kong’s Kwai Chung container terminal, and is part of TNT’s strategy to support the fashion and lifestyle sectors globally.

The hub offers supply chain management solutions to fashion companies and is staffed by specialists in fashion logistics. It offers just-in-time and just-enough options to optimise inventory management.

The facility will be the centre of a hub-and-spoke system that reaches countries including Japan, Korea, China and Singapore.

Edward Lau, Managing Director, TNT Express Hong Kong, said: “Hong Kong is a highly efficient logistics centre and a global hub for trade in garments and luxury goods.

“The fashion industry is all about responding quickly to fast-changing, intensely competitive global and local marketplaces. Our clients must anticipate demand and constantly keep ahead of the curve.”
