After opening for business in July 1994, NE Shenzhen had been engaged in air and ocean cargo forwarding, warehousing and distribution, trucking, and heavy haulage- and construction-related operations in the Shenzhen area in support of customers' supply chains.
The company recently transferred its air and ocean cargo forwarding functions to the Shenzhen Branch of Nippon Express (China) Co., Ltd. (Tatsuo Sugiyama, Chairman), in order to devote itself to domestic logistics support across China (excluding Hong Kong), with the intent of making its sales and operations more focused and more efficient by specializing in logistics support operations within China. To highlight its specialization in logistics support operations, the company changed its name to "Nippon Express Logistics (China)", incorporating the word "logistics", the Chinese equivalent of which denotes warehousing and distribution, and removing "Shenzhen" to indicate that its operating territory will extend to other areas besides Shenzhen.
NE Logistics China will be striving to further cultivate existing customers throughout China, and to expand its domestic logistics support as well as heavy haulage- and construction-related operations centered on apparel and consumer goods.
