Allan Riber Nielsen, Sales Manager for Hong Kong and South China, Scan Global Logistics
With a global transportation network covering more than 187 countries, Scan Global Logistics (SGL) is dedicated to providing tailor-made logistics solutions.
SGL has taken its ‘Can-do’ attitude to China and is continuing to see its business grow throughout the region.
Over the last thirty years, SGL has been offering innovative supply chain solutions for global sea, air and road transportation in addition to specific specialist services.
With a clear vision identifying where SGL is heading, clients are continuing to work alongside SGL as their partner of choice. The company’s vision includes attracting and retaining the best employees to provide a high standard of professional service to both existing and new customers.
SGL’s focus on new business lead the company to enter the Chinese market. A comprehensive business network has been established with SGL offices located in Beijing, Fuzhou, Ningbo, Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Xiamen and Hong Kong.
SGL offers customers in China a unique proposition: to turn fixed costs into variable costs by warehousing fully or partially in Asia. The company is focused on presenting American and European businesses in China with this ‘Asian Warehousing’ opportunity in order to ensure client shipments reach the right customer at the right time. By packing, labelling, price tagging and implementing quality controls, SGL can ensure clients avoid transporting products twice by delivering goods directly from production facilities to the end user, specifically SGL’s clients’ customers.
Specialist services are also a key strength at SGL. The company is heavily involved in the global aid and relief business, with a dedicated 24/7 team working together with the different organizations, assisting with logistical solutions worldwide wherever and whenever it is needed.
The Chinese wind turbine industry also benefits from another of SGL’s specialist services – ‘Wind in China’. Developed in cooperation with Chinese partners, ‘Wind in China’ is a complete solution and handles products and components throughout the supply chain, from production to final delivery.
SGL’s latest concept involves selling warehousing services in China and Hong Kong for ‘Webshop’ companies. SGL serves companies who purchase products in Asia by delivering goods straight to end users private addresses in Europe.
Future plans for SGL in China include an expansion strategy incorporating new offices in Dalian, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing over the next two years. The company’s priority will be to open an office in Dalian in the first quarter of 2012 to cope with increased customer demand. The opening of offices in Guangzhou and other cities will depend on the macro-economic climate in line with SGL’s strategy for growth.
By minimizing client costs and maximizing efficiency, SGL is well positioned to continue offering international clients a complete range of transport and logistics solutions. Close business relationships continue to be the key to the company’s success and SGL is determined to live up to its promise of offering clients the most innovative approach to logistics services.
