DB Schenker Logistics has set out plans to open 15 sites in China by the end of the year.
The company currently has 50 sites in China and some 4,600 employees. Schenker chairman Thomas C Lieb said: “Together with our customers, we are now following economic development to the Chinese hinterland.
The new sites include locations in additional cities in the coastal regions as well as in new centres of economic interest in the interior, such as in the rapidly growing city of Urumqi and others like Hohhot, Mianyang and Weihai.
In June it opened offices in Zhangjiagang, Huzhou and Shaoxing. An additional office was opened in Yiwu in central China in mid-August.
Leib said: “We combine a local presence with our worldwide network, thus ensuring consistent high quality of services and solutions, in line with global standards for our customers’ supply chains throughout the entire process, from the source to the destination.”
