HONG KONG Air Cargo Industry Services Ltd (Hacis), the logistics arm of Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl), has expanded the network coverage of its SuperLink China Direct (SLCD) scheduled road feeder services to include Zhuhai in China and the western Pearl River Delta (PRD).
The new SLCD services result from collaboration with Civet (Zhuhai) Logistics Co., a subsidiary of Chu Kong Shipping Enterprises Group (CKS), following the inking of a partnership agreement that covers the development of joint logistics activity across the western PRD.
Many electronics manufacturers and technology companies are located in this region, where Hacis and CKS see potential demand from these sectors for air-road intermodal services, in the wake of the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, which provides a cost-effective connection to and from Hong Kong International Airport, a joint company statement said.
Hacis' SLCD service network now includes Civet port, situated adjacent to the exit of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and the surrounding area of the PRD.
The move has been facilitated by Zhuhai Customs' approval of the Quick Pass System, which uses an electronic lock and global positioning system (GPS) technology to enable the Customs authority to monitor cross-border cargo - minimizing cargo inspections at the border, streamlining the clearance process and expediting the flow of transhipment cargo.
Hacis managing director Vivien Lau said: 'Hacis is now able to take full advantage of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to provide fast and efficient road feeder services to and from its new depot in Civet port - the ninth Hacis mainland Chinese location.
'The depot is ideally-located at Hongwan in Zhuhai's Nanping town, adjacent to the Zhuhai free trade zone. This new SLCD route will cover Zhuhai, and additional centres in the western PRD such as Zhongshan, Jiangmen, as well as the Hengqin special economic district and Macau. We can also now serve Zhuhai airport, so extending coverage to other mainland cities by air.'
