C H Robinson has opened new offices in Asia and Canada and acquired APC Logistics, a provider of freight forwarding and customs brokerage services in the Oceania region. These expansions have led to 15 new C H Robinson Global Forwarding offices.

Recent growth of C H Robinson’s Global Forwarding division is a testament to how the company is continuing to invest in customers worldwide. Knowing that global supply chains come with increased complexities, the company is expanding into strategic regions to be best equipped to help shippers navigate their global supply chains.

“As our customers are going global with their supply chains, we feel that it is crucial to have boots on the ground in those locations as well,” said Mike Short, president of Global Forwarding at C H Robinson. “It is exciting to see our services and talent pool expanding in these strategic regions.”

These global investments are important in terms of global trade, as they enable enhanced worldwide connectivity. Successful global supply chains depend on uninhibited global trade to get products to consumers. C H Robinson’s supply chain experts create innovative supply chain solutions for customers, no matter what trade regulations and policies are in place.

New office locations include Hanoi, Vietnam; Chengdu, China; Nanning, China; Ludhiana, India; Indore, India; Vizag, India; and Vancouver, Canada. With the acquisition of APC Logistics, C H Robinson has added nine new office locations in Australia and New Zealand.

Shipments across all the new offices will be integrated into the company’s proprietary technology platform, Navisphere. Having every shipment available in a single instance, global platform from beginning to end provides shippers with better visibility and information regarding shipments.

One of the world’s largest third-party logistics (3PL) providers, C H Robinson provides a broad portfolio of logistics services, fresh produce sourcing and managed services for more than 113,000 customers and 71,000 contract carriers through a network of 280 offices and more than 14,000 employees.
