Logistics in China

The requirements for the supply chain of a company operating in China was changing rapidly during the last years. Being successful in this business, the services offered must be on a very high level because the customers' claims are also steadily growing.

But, even for logistics providers who think they might have missed the entrance into the chinese market, there are still chances left. 

Most companies still stick to China

The ongoing flow of goods and trade between China and Companies situated in Germany will be a highly considerable factor in the future. Not only because China is gaining importance as a key market with great revenue possibilities. It is not only considered because of the lower production costs but as a good strategic base for the company. Until now, foreign companies are predominant in the eastern coastal regions and the survey’s result makes clear that they want to stay there.
