Truckload giant Schneider National has gained the authority to operate as a domestic carrier and logistics services provider in China, via a new division named Schneider Logistics (Tianjin) Co. Ltd.
“We see this as a great opportunity for customers in China, whether they be foreign-invested companies or Chinese-based businesses,” said Martin Winchell, managing director of Schneider Logistics China. “We will now be able to help customers build out their intra-China network and grow their business in the various provinces.”
He said growth plans for Schneider Logistics (Tianjin) include acquisitions as opportunities arise. In addition to meeting the domestic supply chain needs of its customers through its newly authorized services, Schneider plans to provide customers with international logistics services, which are still under development, Winchell added.
