John S. Connor opens Shanghai office
John S. Connor Inc., a third-party logistics firm based in Glen Burnie, Md., has opened an office in Shanghai, China.
The 3PL's new facility is located in the Maryland China Center, a venue created in Shanghai by the state of Maryland to assist Maryland companies that want to enter China's markets.
'Our goal is to establish a stronger trade lane between China and the East Coast of the United States,' said Lee Connor, president of John S. Connor.
'Although we will still handle shipments to and from the U.S. West Coast, this trade lane to East Coast ports will be of value to shippers looking to avoid congestion,' Connor explained.
