DB Schenker Partners with Sichuan JiuYe in China
DB Schenker and Sichuan JiuYe Export Ltd., a China-based B2B food trading company, have signed a strategic partnership agreement with future cooperation planned in the handling of perishable goods.
Sichuan JiuYe provides one-stop cross border supply chain services to agriculture, food e-commerce and food companies in China and abroad. The company’s main export market is East Europe, and major import markets comprise of Australia, North America and Europe. Sichuan JiuYe says they aim at growing their businesses scope by attracting more customers from existing and new markets. While already having a well-established infrastructure for the logistic handling of perishables in Sichuan JiuYe’s current import countries, DB Schenker says they see the cooperation with the food trader as excellent opportunity to further build up its competencies in managing perishable shipments in and out of China.
The partnership agreement between the two companies results from previous collaborations earlier this year. DB Schenker executed several air freight export shipments of fresh fruits from China to Russia, Singapore and Hong Kong. “We are honored and thrilled by collaborating with Sichuan JiuYe. This is an important milestone for us and brings us closer to our goal to achieve a leading market position in the logistics of perishable goods in China”, says Thomas Sorensen, CEO North/Central China, Schenker China Ltd., at the New Agricultural Fair in Hangzhou.
