Kuehne + Nagel has opened a new less-than-containerload gateway in Shanghai.
The Swiss forwarder said it is offering 28 fixed-day, weekly LCL sailings from Shanghai to Europe, Latin America, South America and the Middle East.
Domestic feeder and truck services will be used to deliver LCL shipments from the northern and central Chinese ports of Dalian, Tianjin, Qingdao, Ningbo and Xiamen into K+N’s bonded warehouse facilities in Shanghai prior to overseas departures.
The new routes, which take K+N’s LCL portfolio in Asia-Pacific to some 276 direct links, are operated by the company’s in-house non-vessel-operating common carrier, Blue Anchor Line.
“The new gateway complements Kuehne + Nagel’s existing direct services in Shanghai and serves as an alternative to the company’s other two gateways in Singapore and Sri Lanka,” the company said.
