Sino-Global opens two offices
Sino-Global Shipping America Ltd., a non-state-owned provider of shipping agency services operating primarily in China, said Monday it has established two branches in Yantai, Shandong province and Yingkou, Liaoning province, China.
The new branch offices give Sino-Global a presence in eight ports in China, and will enable the company to provide a full range of services to companies doing business in the Yantai and Yingkou ports. The company has contractual arrangements with local shipping agencies in all mainland Chinese ports in which it does not have a branch office.
“Expanding the geographic reach of our services continues to be one of our key development strategies as we strive to better serve the needs of our clients from port to port,” said Cao Lei, Sino-Global’s chief executive officer. “I’m confident that this geographic expansion combined with our strategy of low-cost expansion into complementary business areas such as handling cargo and renting and staffing ships will allow us to maintain positive growth momentum even within this economic downturn.”
Yantai port handles container, bulk cargo, and roll-on/roll-off traffic for goods such as fertilizer, iron ore, grain, cement, coal and rock such as granite.
