Big Orange has gotten the green light to operate in China. Schneider National recently received permission to operate as a domestic carrier and logistics service provider in that nation, becoming the only North American truckload carrier to establish a domestic business in the world's third-largest market.
"We see this as a great opportunity for customers in China, whether they be foreign-invested companies or Chinese-based businesses," says Martin Winchell, managing director of Schneider Logistics China, a part of the Schneider National enterprise. "We will now be able to help customers build out their intra-China network and grow their business in the various provinces."
Schneider Logistics (Tianjin) will offer domestic transportation, logistics (warehousing, cross docking, and thirdparty logistics offerings), and related services. The company will build these services through a combination of organic growth and acquisition in China. Schneider Logistics has established a new office in the Tianjin Economic Technological Development area.
