U-Freight relocates to larger premises in Guangzhou, Xiamen
Hong Kong-based forwarder U-Freight has opened new facilities in the Chinese cities of Guangzhou and Xiamen and started a sea-air freight service through Xiamen.
At Guangzhou’s Baiyun International airport, U-Freight has relocated its operations office and logistics warehouse to a larger 2,500-square-meter combined office and warehouse facility. U-Freight said it will retain its existing sales office in Guangzhou.
In Xiamen, U-Freight has combined its existing downtown and airport offices and moved to a larger single office near Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport.
At the same time, U-Freight is launching a sea-air service through Xiamen, with the first leg comprising a sea freight service between Xiamen and Kaohsiung. Goods will then be moved by bonded truck to Taipei airport before finally being shipped by air freight to the United States and Europe.
“The moves will serve to strengthen our position at Guangzhou Baiyun and Xiamen Gaoqi as we look ahead to each airport’s respective expansion programs and the likely increase in airfreight volumes that will result,” said Simon Wong, chief executive officer of U-Freight.
