SBS Worldwide starts HK, Shenzhen, Shanghai to US consolidation

2012 03 09

THE Atlanta office of UK-based SBS Worldwide has launched three consolidation services with weekly departures from Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Shanghai to New York.

The SBS simplified consolidation services are designed to meet the needs for transparent pricing and fixed-weekly sailings with reliable transit times, said a company statement.

"Most weekly consolidation services from China to the US transship are via Hong Kong. By offering consolidation services from Shenzhen and Shanghai directly to New York, we are able to remove a transport leg, which reduces lead times and makes the service more cost efficient," said SBS Worldwide chairman Steve Walker.

"The fact a transport leg has been removed also increases the reliability of service as the risk of goods being delayed in transit are lessened," said Mr Walker.

New services also reduce the risk of cargo being damaged during transport as product is only handled once at origin, compared with services that tranship via Hong Kong where cargo needs to be re-loaded, the company said.
