September 29 - The Swedish-headquartered logistics specialist Greencarrier, which has in recent years expanded substantially within the Nordic countries and the Baltic states, is continuing with its programme to create a network of offices in China.
Greencarrier already had over 30 staff in offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen. It is now opening two more offices, one in Ningbo and the other in Xiamen.
Next on the agenda says Niklas Olsson, CCO of Greencarrier International, will be an office in Northern China: "We are looking at Dalian, Qingdao and Tianjin and have set a target date of early 2012, although it may happen before that.
"As we do in our southern offices, we will offer a complete range of logistics products including sea/air services, 3PL and distribution centre solutions. For us, these sectors have become our specialities since there is considerable demand for companies with the skill to be able to manage these more complex activities."
The Greencarrier office in Ningbo is a branch office to Greencarrier Shanghai Limited. Initially there are three people working in the office under the supervision of general manager, Heather Yang.
Following Greencarrier's launch in Ningbo, the Swedish company will open a fifth Chinese office, this time in Xiamen.
Due to openon October 1st, the Xiamen office will initially have two staff members, Jessica Xing and Ken Chen.
