Computer maker Asus has signed a contract with Norbert Dentressangle to handle all air and ocean computer products from more than 20 factories in mainland China.
Asus is a $14 billion business which designs and manufactures a wide range of products including desktop and all-in-one PCs, notebooks, netbooks, servers, and multimedia devices.
It appointed Dentressangle’s US freight forwarding business in 2011, to manage the ocean freight of product from four production facilities in China to the US, and the onward distribution of products to customers in the US customers.
The relationship has since been extended to include the management of air freight from the manufacturing plant in Chongqing.
David Weiss, director, retail operations and supply chain at Asus said: “We have absolute confidence in the Norbert Dentressangle teams, both in China and the US. In addition to their operational capabilities, they are a proactive and strategic partner who – despite the largely transactional nature of the freight forwarding industry – demonstrate an in-depth understanding of our business and a willingness to invest time, money and resources to continually improve the service they provide.”
Dentressangle will also continue to handle Asus American transport operations, delivering product to over 1,500 destinations throughout the US and expects to enter discussions with ASUS regarding its US warehousing operations during 2014.
