UWL Opens First China Office in Shanghai
Ohio Pen/10202330

CLEVELAND - OhioPen -- UWL, a leading global third-party logistics solutions provider, has expanded its global footprint with the opening of its first office in China in Shanghai's Bund area, commencing on December 1, 2022.

Growth and demand across the shipping industry has helped fuel customer requests for in-market expertise and know-how from UWL. The Shanghai location is the fourth new office opening for UWL in the last 12 months, following an office in Chicago in November 2021, and locations in Long Beach and Vietnam in April 2022.

"We are in the final stages of delivering system and process training and we look forward to taking customer bookings," said UWL Vice President Martin Karczewski, whose team is responsible for carrier and agent relationships across the globe.

He added: "With Shanghai being the busiest port in the world, most of our customers have some relationship to central China. Being physically located here allows us to respond faster to their needs and concerns, and we improve our ability to access multiple capacity types, be it via agent relationships or direct carrier relationships."

This expansion in China will also bring WorldScope (https://content.shipuwl.com/worldscope-supply-chain-visibility), UWL's proprietary supply chain visibility tool, to more customers. Users can utilize WorldScope to track shipments, manage invoices and documents, and even book export shipments, all from one portal. Customers can also opt in to WorldScope+ Purchase Order Management (POM) to drill down even further - to the item, SKU, or purchase order level - giving peace-of-mind that the right product is being delivered to the right place at the right time.

"We are confident that this office will act as a control tower for UWL's operations across China," added Mr. Wright. "Even though China has seen recent political change and strict COVID protocols, at the end of the day, it remains a huge and complex market that feeds a large percentage of US demand. To take UWL to the next level, we need to have boots on the ground to manage cargo both globally and locally, and we will continue to add strategic international office locations in the near future."
