SCHENKER SECURES CHINA NVO LICENSE
Schenker has obtained a non-vessel-operating common carrier license from the Chinese Ministry of Communications.
This license will allow the Essen, Germany-based company to handle ocean freight through Chinese ports and permit Schenker to use its own bills of lading.
“Schenker is now one of the few international logistics service providers who have obtained the license,” said Ulrich Villinger, regional manager for Asia-Pacific for Schenker. “The new license will further strengthen Schenker’s market position in China and enhance our global integrated logistics services.”
Schenker entered the Chinese market in the 1970s. It now has operations in 18 Chinese cities, including Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao, Changchun, Dalian, Shijiazhuang, Shanghai, Ningbo, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Wuxi, Chengdu, Xiamen, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Shunde, Dongguan and Shenzhen.
