Hong Kong Air Cargo Industry Services Limited (Hacis) said it has opened its seventh inland cargo depot, directly targeting e-Commerce in mainland China. Hacis is the road-feeder arm of Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl), one of the cargo handling companies at Hong Kong International Airport.
Known as Hacis Nansha, located in the Pearl River Delta region, the depot is the latest destination for Hacis SuperLink China Direct, a truck service designed to deliver air shipments to inland
destinations. The Guangzhou-based service is for both general cargo and cross-border e-Commerce cargo.
Creating increased value
Located in the Guangdong Free Trade Zone, the Hacis Nansha Depot has integrated its cargo management and customs clearance systems, enabling real-time information exchange between all relevant parties to speed up transit times.
Nansha became China’s sixth State-level New Area in 2012 and is now one of the eight pilot cross-border e-Commerce zones approved by the Chinese Government.
Managing director of Hacis, Vivien Lau said the Guangdong Free Trade Zone will open new opportunities for Hacis and that stronger ties with nearby mainland cities like Nansha will create increased value to Hacis’ airline and forwarder customers.
