Agility, a global provider of supply chain solutions, has strengthened its presence in China through the acquisition of Guangzhou Runtong International Transportation Company Limited (GRITCL), which is primarily focused on ocean freight forwarding services in Guangdong.
The company has employees across six provinces in China and branch offices in Guangxi, Sichuan, Fujian, Yunnan and Chongqing. When the acquisition is complete, Agility will have 14 offices in China and operations will be directed from the company's China headquarters in Guangzhou.
"It is important that we provide our customers with comprehensive services to meet their individual business needs throughout China," says Wolfgang Hollermann, Agility's CEO for Asia-Pacific. "By integrating Guangzhou Runtong International Transportation Company Limited into our global network, we have extended our reach into the region and enhanced our service offering. Going forward we plan to invest in the expansion of GRITCL and its range of services to include airfreight and logistics solutions for our customers in south China."
