New forwarding offices opened by C.H. Robinson

New forwarding offices opened by C.H. Robinson

C.H. Robinson has opened new offices in Asia and Canada and more after acquiring APC Logistics, which has extensive freight forwarding and customs brokerage services in the Oceania region.

The US freight forwarder says the move has ensured shippers’ “needs are met and exceeded” by expanding its global footprint in key strategic global markets, and led to creation of 15 new C.H. Robinson Global Forwarding offices.

New office locations include Hanoi, Vietnam; Chengdu, China; Nanning, China; Ludhiana, India; Indore, India; Vizag, India; and Vancouver, Canada. With the acquisition of APC Logistics, C.H. Robinson has added nine new office locations in Australia and New Zealand.

The company says recent growth of its Global Forwarding division is a testament to how it is continuing to invest in customers around the world and by expanding into strategic regions to be best equipped to help shippers navigate their global supply chains.

C.H. Robinson Global Forwarding president, Mike Short says: “As our customers are going global with their supply chains, we feel that it is crucial to have boots on the ground in those locations as well. It is exciting to see our services and talent pool expanding in these strategic regions.”

Shipments across all of the new offices, including offices acquired through the acquisition, will be integrated into the company’s proprietary technology platform, Navisphere. Having every shipment available in a single instance, global platform from beginning to end provides shippers with better visibility and information regarding their shipments.

“I am energised by the growth of our Global Forwarding division. I look forward to our continued focus on global expansion, which will allow us to create an unbeatable customer service experience around the world,” adds Short.
