Schneider Logistics, an international lead logistics provider, has announced it has opened a new office in Shanghai, China. The office, which initially will offer general consulting services, provides Schneider Logistics with the platform to deliver end-to-end international freight management across North America, Europe and Asia.

“As China’s regulatory environment continues to evolve and the volume of global and domestic trade increases, it is imperative that logistics providers directly link to China,” said Tom Escott, president of Schneider Logistics. “With the addition of the new location in China, we are able to connect clients to every corner of the world and provide logistics expertise across every facet of the global supply chain, from manufacturer to retail outlet.”

Coming on the heels of Schneider Logistics’ acquisition of American Port Services, a U.S.-based provider of port facilities and transportation, Schneider says its arrival in China further demonstrates the company’s commitment to developing its presence in the international marketplace.

Schneider Logistics says its clients in China will benefit from working with experienced associates in Asian and North American transportation markets, and from the company’s scope, scale and experience in managing complex logistics networks, multimodal transportation expertise, proven logistics technology and a track record of innovation.

The new office is led by Martin Winchell, director for Greater China, and is located at Suite 3119, Jin Mao Tower, 88 Shi Ji Ave., Pudong, Shanghai 200120 P.R. China, phone: (86)(21) 2890-9635; fax: (86)(21) 2890-9134.

The company has applied for a trademark in China under its Chinese name, “Shi Neng Da,” which conveys “the world is within reach.”
