December 15 - The global logistics service provider Logwin is expanding its operational network in China.
This year, Logwin has opened three new offices, including a sales office in Chengdu this month, and expanded an existing site. By 2015, it says 12 further branch offices are scheduled to open in southern and central China.
"Our current expansion in China is the first step toward our even greater commitment to this very promising market", declares Helmut Kaspers, COO of the business segment Air + Ocean at Logwin.
Logwin has been present in China for over 40 years and currently has 25 offices in 11 provinces. The logistics service provider is planning three new openings in the southern coastal region of China in 2012.
The new Logwin office in Chengdu, the capital of the province of Sichuan, is the second business centre after Chongqing operated by the logistics service provider in western China. "The Go West policy promoted by the Chinese government means that foreign investment in central and western China is increasing", explains Henk Westerhoek, country director Central and Northern China at Logwin. "Our clients are also relocating their activities more and more toward the middle of the country."
