Warehousing operators from the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe are welcome to join the fastest growing logistics network in China.
Hong Kong, August 8, 2014 - The OYM Logistics Alliance, a large independent warehousing network in China, has announced that it is now open to non-Chinese members. Providers of warehousing and distribution services from any country are now welcome to join the fastest growing logistics alliance of independent logistics providers in China. Operators from the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union are especially needed, due to a growing demand for regional logistics services by emerging Chinese brands, who seek to expand globally.
The OYM Logistics Alliance was established in Hong Kong in 2012 with the objective to streamline regional distribution in China. It started as small group of warehouse operators, looking to pool their resources and offer integrated warehousing and distribution services to importers. As of August 2014 it includes 2,459 warehousing facilities in 260 cities, with total storage are of 54.8 million square meters.
Via the Alliance IT system, the members get global visibility and are able to provide consistent information about the capabilities of their facilities to supply chain managers worldwide. (Read a related story about the Alliance)
While the initial objective of the Alliance was to facilitate inventory distribution only in China, the global trends in commerce brought about some changes in the structure of the organization. As e-commerce becomes more prevalent in Asia, many emerging brands from the mainland are beginning to think globally. As a result they are starting to look for warehousing and distribution providers in the established markets of affluent nations. Many of these brands are already using the warehousing facilities of the Alliance on a local level, and they would like to simply add a new North American or European distribution location within the familiar framework of the Alliance.
To quickly respond to this increase in demand for logistics services outside of China, the Alliance is now opening its logistics platform to non-Chinese members as well, specifically those located in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union. Warehousing and distribution service providers from those regions are welcome to join and offer their services to the global user base of the Alliance.
The registration process is fairly simple. Interested parties must submit an application form to the Alliance customer service team, providing detailed information about their warehousing and distribution services, along with photos and technical details about their facilities.
