     Swiss logistics company, HABA-SPED Ltd, announced today (May 12) that from June, 2014 it will expand its operations in Hong Kong with the new "Daily + Swiss" service offering direct freight shipment from Hong Kong to Switzerland.

     This daily consolidated container service handles shipments for clients straight from Hong Kong, Yantian and Shanghai to Europe. The containers are sealed before departure and only opened on arrival with no transshipments or stopovers, and a guaranteed turnaround time to the European destination ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp, Bremerhaven and Hamburg.

      The Managing Director of HABA-SPED Ltd, Mr Roland Schaffer, said, "Hong Kong's proximity to Mainland China, as well as its position as an international logistics hub and shipping centre, offers attractive business opportunities and a favourable operating environment to multinational logistics companies.

     "We look forward to further expansion in Hong Kong. In the near future, we see good opportunities in airfreight and warehousing, and we are recruiting additional staff to cope with increased demand in these two areas," he added.

     The Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Mr Andrew Davis, welcomed the expansion of HABA-SPED Ltd in Hong Kong and said, "Hong Kong is home to the one of the largest communities of shipping, freight forwarding and logistics providers in Asia. Together with its free port status and strategic geographic location, the city offers an ideal location for logistics management businesses."


     Founded in Switzerland in 1990, HABA-SPED Ltd offers modern transportation and logistics services globally and operates under the vision of "the better service". Through communication with its clients, the company seeks to identify their wishes and expectations. It has 35 branch offices in all major continents, including 14 in Mainland China.
