GAC China to provide upstream logistics services for car imports


GAC China has been appointed by Shandong High Speed Qingdao West Coastport Co. Ltd, a parallel car importer, as its upstream logistics provider. Over the course of the one-year contract, it will handle the receiving and checking, container loading and freight services of an estimated 3,000-4,000 cars exported from Hamburg and Rotterdam to Qingdao and Hong Kong.

Simon Xu, Managing Director of GAC China, said, “Our partnership with Shandong High Speed marks the beginning of a new chapter for GAC China, that will allow us to leapfrog into a new territory in the contract logistics market for fully assembled automobiles.”

GAC China’s contract logistics team led by manager Tyrone Liu will work closely with GAC’s partners in Hamburg and counterparts at GAC Rotterdam to ensure the safe and prompt delivery of the vehicles.

GAC China has already handled the first shipment under the contract – two Range Rover HSEs from Germany to Qingdao, China.
