Home to the world’s fourth-busiest cargo airport by freight tonnage, Shanghai continues to develop into an increasingly strategic logistics center.
Taiwanese shipping company Evergreen Group recently established its Chinese headquarters in Shanghai, which company chairman Y.F. Chang described as the mainland’s ‘economic and transportation center.’
Chang said, ‘After 15 years of growth and success, Shanghai is the economic and transportation center for the entire Asia-Pacific region. Evergreen will continue to choose Shanghai in the future because we believe it is becoming the economic and transportation center for the world.’
UPS sees Shanghai as a strategic transportation center as it expands its operations around the globe. The carrier expects to open its newest hub at Shanghai Airport on Dec. 9, linking all of China to its international network with direct connections to Europe, Asia and the Americas. The Shanghai hub will also support domestic package service via all-cargo carrier Yangtze River Express.
