(October 1, 2018) With the opening of a new office in Lang Son Province at the Huu Nghi border gate connecting Vietnam and China, DB Schenker is now present at all key borders connecting China to Southeast Asia.
Huu Nghi is one of the busiest border gates between North Vietnam and China. With the investment in additional infrastructure, DB Schenker took another step to strengthen its cross-border road freight service capabilities in Asia.
Commenting on the opening, Mr. Hoai Thanh, Head of Land Transport Vietnam, said: "We opened the new facility because there is a clear customer need. With hundreds of trucks passing the border every day with time critical cargo, it is vital to have the infrastructure in place to enable smooth customs clearance and secure transfer for our customers.”
One of the biggest customer benefits of the new office is to have all cross-border services available in one place. In cross border road transport, a high waiting time for customs clearance and the need to change trucks due to local regulations, is a major obstacle for export businesses.
Mr. Gregory Loh, Director LANDbridge APAC, added: “With the opening of the Lang Son office, which complements the existing PingXiang office across the border in Guangxi Province, we now have presence at all key borders connecting China to Southeast Asia. Our network will be even better placed to watch over our customer shipments as they move long distances across this territory.”
