Nippon Express Logistics (China) Co., Ltd. (Chairman: Wang Hanjian, hereinafter, "NX Logistics China"), a group company of NIPPON EXPRESS HOLDINGS, INC. (President: Mitsuru Saito), began offering a cross-border transport service connecting Zhuhai and Hong Kong by truck via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (hereinafter, "HZMB") on Thursday, September 1 in the face of various logistics-related restrictions imposed by China in response to the spread of COVID-19 infections.
[Background of service development]
Due to the spread of COVID-19 infections, severe traffic restrictions are still in place between Shenzhen and Hong Kong in southern China, and transport delays have become the norm for cross-border overland transport, significantly impacting not only domestic logistics within China but also international supply chains that rely on Hong Kong as an import/export hub.
NX Logistics China has developed a new overland transport route from Zhuhai in South China to Hong Kong via the HZMB as a BCP solution to maintain stable supply chains for its customers and has begun offering a cross-border transport service using this route. Customers can thus enjoy greater convenience by availing themselves of the company's cross-border transport services within the Pearl River Delta from both Shenzhen gate in the east and Zhuhai gate in the west.
Cargo from South China and other parts of the country is consolidated and sorted at a Nippon Express warehouse in Zhuhai, transshipped to double-licensed trucks at a cross-docking facility in Zhuhai, and then transported via the HZMB to Hong Kong International Airport or designated delivery destinations.
The Nippon Express Group will continue supporting its customers' business continuity by developing alternative routes and utilizing alternatve transport modes to provide BCP solutions that meet customer requests.
