Dimerco Express Group has expanded its Southeast Asia trucking network into China.
The Taiwan-based 3PL’s trucking services incorporated a route into Shenzhen, the heart of South China’s factory belt, from Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand via Vietnam
Chief Operating Officer Edward Lin said the new service would help transport the rising flow of cargo between ASEAN countries and Greater China.
“The road freight linkage will increase the connectivity between both regions,” he said. “With this extension, Dimerco now offers road freight between Singapore and Shenzhen with seven days transit time, and five major transit hubs along the route — Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Bangkok, and Hanoi.”
Lin said Dimerco’s full truckload and less-than-truckload cross-border road options complemented air and ocean services and were helping the company to strengthen its position in the Asia Pacific region. “We started the cross border road freight services back in 2000, between Singapore and Malaysia, and progressively extended the service to Thailand, with Bangkok serving as a multimodal transportation gateway for Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar,” he added.
“Various security features are available with this service, among which are Web-based GPS, enabling the customers to track and monitor the status of their cargo, as well as security e-lock system with SMS or bar code scanner technology.”
