The move is expected to make a sizable expansion in the South Pacific region, and further strengthen the existing trade lanes to and from Asia, the US and Latin America.
'China accounts for nearly one-third of Australia's global trade and is among the leading countries for foreign direct investment. We are proud to establish ourselves in Australia to reflect its significance to our group', said Charter Link chairman Benny Chan.
Since forming in 1998, Charter Link has been known as a neutral Asian LCL consolidator and made significant inroads into establishing itself on a global scale in the recent years, said the company statement.
Our latest project completions include the opening of two Spanish offices at Barcelona and Valencia and attaining ISO 9001:2015 (QMS) & ISO 27001:2013 (Information Security) accreditation at our corporate headquarters.
