Nippon Express Global Logistics (Shanghai) (NE GLS), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co, gained its license for assembly processing operations in the Shanghai Logistics Zone from Monday October 25.
NE GLS is the first logistics company to be licensed for assembly processing operations in the Shanghai Waigaoqiao Bonded Logistics Zone.
China only permits assembly processing in Hong Kong, Macau, and some special bonded areas, and customers holding cargo inventory for end users in Shanghai and environments have long sought to carry out assembly processing at a closer location.
Having obtained its license, NE GLS can now arrange products in presentation boxes, attach parts to equipment and provide other services in accordance with customer requests, reducing transport costs to end users in the vicinity of Shanghai and cutting lead times.
Nippon Express will continue utilizing its global network to use its international transport services as well as its logistics functions in China to help its customers develop their businesses.
The Nippon Express Group will become the “NX Group” and introduce new Group brand symbols on January 4, 2022.
