[photopress:port_of_baltimore.jpg,full,alignright]Glen Burnie logistics and freight company John S. Connor Inc has formed a new partnership that will allow service from Shanghai directly to the Port of Baltimore. John S. Connor and Asian logistics company Orient Star Group will offer a weekly service from Shanghai, a first for Baltimore’s port.
The new service will give shippers the option of avoiding other more congested East Coast ports and will lower costs on inland deliveries and container freight station unloading charges.
The company opened a Shanghai office in June to strengthen trade ties to China. Connor President, Lee Connor, said in a statement, ‘Our goal was to enhance the company’s ability to service shipping customers in China with all logistics aspects, including operations, Internet tracking and tracing, and customs clearance.’
