K+N enters into strategic cooperation to support China’s Shanghai to Taicang Express
May 24, 2017: Logistics giant Kuehne + Nagel has signed a strategic cooperation with Jiangsu Taicang Port Authority and Shanghai Port Authority Zhenghe Terminal to promote a sea link between the Shanghai and Taicang ports.
The Port of Taicang, located at the south bank of the Yangtze River estuary near Shanghai, is widely considered to be a significant satellite port to Shanghai’s Yangshan megaport. Under the agreement, Kuehne + Nagel will cooperate with both port authorities to support the shuttle service which is in line with the Jiangsu Provincial Government strategic development plan to bring greater attention to the Taicang Port area. The sea-link aims to reduce CO2 emissions and improve efficiency by serving as a greener alternative to trucking between Jiangsu and Shanghai. This will have the added benefit of reducing vehicles on Shanghai’s heavily congested roads. The cooperation also intends to showcase Taicang as an international satellite port within the Shanghai Yangtze river estuary area, helping to aggregate high traffic at Shanghai Yangshan port.
Shao Jian Lin, director of Taicang Port Authority, said, “We hope this cooperation will place a spotlight on the capabilities and ongoing expansion of Taicang port, ensuring market awareness on an even greater international scale.”
Markus Johannsen, senior vice president Seafreight North Asia, Kuehne + Nagel, said, “By leveraging Kuehne + Nagel’s position as a leader in international seafreight, we are well placed to cooperate with the Taicang and Shanghai Port authority. Furthermore, the agreement will enable us to provide our customers a more cost effective, efficient service in the South Jiangsu area, adding even more value to their international supply chains. We are delighted to enter this agreement with Taicang and Shanghai Port authorities and look forward to more opportunities for cooperation in the future.”
