DB Schenker and Sichuan Jiuye have signed a strategic partnerhsip agreement at the A20 New Agriculture Fair in Hangzhou.
(Shanghai, August 4, 2017) DB Schenker, one of the leading global logistics service providers, and Sichuan JiuYe, a China-based B2B food trading company, have signed a strategic partnership agreement at the A20 New Agriculture Fair in Hangzhou, China, on August 4, 2017. The agreement between the two parties cements their future cooperation in logistic handling of perishable goods.
Sichuan JiuYe provides cross border one-stop supply chain services to agriculture, food e-commerce and food companies in China and abroad. The company’s main export market is East Europe; major import markets comprise Australia, North America and Europe. By using DB Schenker as freight forwarding provider for its perishable goods, Sichuan JiuYe benefits from DB Schenker’s strong global network and extensive market experience. With an internationally leading and renowned logistics partner, JiuYe aims at growing its business scope by attracting more customers from existing and new markets.
DB Schenker considers JiuYe as an important strategic partner to strengthen and develop its footprint in the perishable segment in China. While already having a well-established infrastructure for the logistic handling of perishables in JiuYe’s current import countries, DB Schenker sees the cooperation with the food trader as excellent opportunity to further build up its competencies in managing perishable shipments in and out of China.
The partnership agreement between the two companies results from previous collaborations earlier this year. DB Schenker smoothly executed several air freight export shipments of fresh fruits from China to Russia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Based on the excellent and consistent service performance provided by DB Schenker JiuYe was convinced to have found the right logistics partner in DB Schenker.
“We are honoured and thrilled by collaborating with Sichuan JiuYe. This is an important milestone for us and brings us closer to our goal to achieve a leading market position in the logistics of perishable goods in China”, says Thomas Sorensen, CEO North/Central China, Schenker China Ltd., at the New Agricultural Fair in Hangzhou.
