Company Now Delivers Solutions on Three Continents
Green Bay, Wis. and Shanghai, China-Oct. 11, 2005-Schneider Logistics, Inc., an international lead logistics provider, today announced it has opened a new office in Shanghai, China. The office will leverage Schneider Logistics core competency in all aspects of supply chain management and initially provide general consulting services. The expansion provides Schneider Logistics with the platform to deliver end-to-end international freight management across North America, Europe and Asia.
As Chinas regulatory environment continues to evolve and the volume of global and domestic trade increases, it is imperative that logistics providers directly link to China, said Tom Escott, president of Schneider Logistics. With the addition of the new location in China we are able to connect clients to every corner of the world and provide logistics expertise across every facet of the global supply chain, from manufacturer to retail outlet.
Coming on the heels of Schneider Logistics acquisition of American Port Services, a leading U.S.-based provider of port facilities and transportation, Schneiders presence in China further demonstrates the companys commitment to the international marketplace. Schneider Logistics clients in China benefit from working with experienced associates in Asian and North American transportation markets. Clients also benefit from the companys scope, scale and experience in managing complex logistics networks, multimodal transportation expertise, proven logistics technology and a track record of innovation. Schneider Logistics is recognized for its state-of-the-art supplier/vendor connectivity and visibility tools and organizational and financial stability.
