Sinolines will be able to leverage on CALISTA to expand its business footprint, while users on CALISTA can tap on Sinoline’s extensive port network in China and access to warehousing, terminal and yard services with multimodal freight options including cross-border rail transhipment services.
Zhao Chunji, general manager of Sinolines, said: “As a shipping company focusing on intra-Asia trade, Sinolines aims to offer comprehensive logistic service to customers. We can provide better, more convenient and efficient service to our customers through the close cooperation between Sinolines and GeTS.”
Chong Kok Keong, ceo of GeTS, noted that China has been Asean’s largest trading partner in the past 10 years with bilateral trade reaching $292bn in the first half of 2019.
“This partnership will bring synergistic value to the customers, allowing for more efficient logistics and distribution. We will continue to make trade more accessible, predictable and easier,” Chong commented.
