[photopress:schneider_logistics.jpg,full,alignright]Transportation and logistics services provider Schneider has officially been granted authority to set up shop as a domestic carrier and logistics services provider in the People’s Republic of China. The name for the company is Schneider Logistics (Tianjin) Co. Ltd but we will use Schneider.
It is the only North American truckload provider to establish a domestic business in China. It has had a representative office in Shanghai since May 2005 while it was in the early part of the learning curve.
Since that time the company has actively been looking for China-based investment opportunities in three areas: domestic distribution, trucking and warehousing services; port services such as drayage, transloading, and warehousing; and freight-forwarding.
Now Schneider domestic transportation, logistics (warehousing, crossdocking and third-party logistics) and other related services. The company added it will build these services through a combination of organic growth and acquisition in China. It also mentioned that it plans to provide customers with international logistics services, which are still under development.
The company has established a new office location in the Tianjin Economic Technological Development area.
