Mark Hong, C.H. Robinson's director of Asia global forwarding, said, "We will use this as our launching point for further movement into the region. We believe there is a tremendous opportunity for growth. Singapore's economy is highly developed, and the Port of Singapore is one of the busiest in the world. With this expansion, we are furthering our commitment to developing inter-region distribution in Asia and continuing to build the links between our regional distribution networks in North America, Europe and South America."
The C.H. Robinson Singapore office will provide air and sea transportation, warehousing, distribution, consolidation and other services for the Southeast Asia region.
"Expanding our network of offices into Southeast Asia further enables us to provide our customers with flexible, multimodal solutions. The Singapore office will have access to C.H. Robinson's international expertise and global network of offices, which is one of the world's largest transportation and logistics networks," Hong said.
