Gulftainer, a regional port operator, has met with key traders in Shenzhen to boost trade and logistics ties with the freight forwarding community of South China.
The meeting was attended by the Shenzhen International Freight Forwarders Association and the Qingdao Logistics Network, introducing them to Gulftainer’s value proposition in its flagship trade gateways in the Northern Emirates of the country, which is Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT) and Khorfakkan Container Terminal (KCT).
Andrew Hoad, Chief Commercial Officer of Gulftainer, said: “Our meeting with the Shenzhen International Freight Forwarders Association and the Qingdao Logistics Network underscores our commitment to nurturing mutually beneficial trade partnerships.
“With our state-of-the-art supply chain and logistics facilities and strategically situated terminals, Gulftainer is ideally poised to facilitate the seamless movement of cargoes and enhance connectivity between South China and the UAE through Sharjah Container Terminal and Khorfakkan Container Terminals.
“We firmly believe that this event will pave the way to explore new avenues of growth and reinforce trade relations between our regions.”
The conversations reportedly focused on the many opportunities afforded by Gulftainer’s Momentum Logistics (ML), notably in warehousing and trucking as vital components of an integrated distribution centre.
In June 2020, Gulftainer launched the Future of Ports Startup Challenge to identify startups from across the globe with the ambition to lead the transformation of the port management and logistics industries.
