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.

[Service details]

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.

[Service features]

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.
