Nippon Express beats the jams

[ October 25, 2022   //   ]

Nippon Express Logistics has launched a daily ‘Covid-proof’ cross-border transport service between Zhuhai in mainland China and Hong Kong via the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge. It follows a number of restrictions imposed by China in response to the spread of infections.

Severe traffic restrictions are still in place between Shenzhen and Hong Kong in southern China, and transport delays have become the norm for cross-border overland transport, significantly impacting not only domestic logistics within China but also international supply chains that rely on Hong Kong as an import/export hub.

Cargo from South China and other parts of the country is consolidated and sorted at a Nippon Express warehouse in Zhuhai, transhipped to double-licensed trucks at a cross-docking facility in Zhuhai, and then transported via the HZMB to Hong Kong International Airport or designated delivery destinations.
