Den Hartogh Holding has acquired a majority shareholding in Shanghai Xintao Dangerous Cargo Transportation (XT Logistics), which will significantly increase its capability to provide end-to-end chemical logistics services within China.
“The majority acquisition of XT Logistics will further enhance our domestic footprint in China. Our integration with an established trucking partner reflects Den Hartogh China’s ambition to offer one-stop logistics services for our existing and also prospective customers,” says group managing director Pieter den Hartogh.
The joint venture will initially own and operate a domestic fleet of 13 trucks and 20 chassis. XT Logistics has the necessary dangerous goods trucking licence and permits to transport a wide variety of chemicals.
The news comes shortly after Den Hartogh China and XT Logistics carried out their first joint transport, carrying tank containers shipped to Shanghai from Japan by network partner Nissin and moving those tanks some 1,900 km by road to Mianyang in Sichuan province.
“Through our partnership with domestic trucking partner XT Logistics we now have better control in enforcing world-class standards in the management and transportation of liquid chemicals in inland China,” Den Hartogh China says. “This Japan-China door-to-door logistics contract showcases Den Hartogh’s value added service, despite challenging Covid-19 constraints, to deliver multimodal door-to-door transportation solutions across country borders in Asia.”[post_title] => Den Hartogh makes China move [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => den-hartogh-makes-china-move [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-09-29 15:00:03 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-09-29 14:00:03 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://hcblive.com/?p=28325 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )
