Parallel car importer Shandong High Speed Qingdao West Coastport Co. Ltd. has appointed GAC China as its upstream logistics provider.
Under the one-year contract, GAC will handle the receiving and checking, container loading and freighting of 3,000-4,000 cars exported from Hamburg and Rotterdam to Qingdao and Hong Kong.
Simon Xu, Managing Director of GAC China, is optimistic about market growth and the opportunities that it will generate: “China was ranked as the world’s number one automotive market for the eighth year last year, with double-digit total sales growth. We are also seeing a rising trend for the direct import of European cars into the country.
“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.”
