UK logistics trade mission to China.

21 June, 16

The United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) is organising a trade mission to China and Hong Kong for the UK logistics industry.

The five-day trip, which takes place this October, includes a stand within the dedicated UKWA Pavilion at the China International Logistics and Transportation Fair (CILF), site visits, business matching meetings and a number of networking dinners and other high profile receptions.

Translators will be provided throughout to ensure that delegates can communicate clearly with the contacts they make.

The CILF is held in Shenzhen on 12th-14th October and, this year, the China International Internet and E-Commerce Expo will run alongside it. An annual show, the Fair attracts many thousands of visitors from across China and the Far East.

The price of taking part in the mission is £7,495 plus VAT while members of UKWA qualify for a 20 per cent discount, bringing the cost down to £5,995 plus VAT.

“This trade delegation offers wonderful opportunities for UK logistics service providers who are seeking to capture the huge opportunities opening up in the Far East, with a significant growth of trade in both directions” says UKWA’s CEO, Peter Ward.

“Today’s technology has empowered a new breed of consumer, and China has 750 million of them now capable of shopping worldwide.  The Chinese logistics industry is poised for major growth over the next five years and is expected to be worth $450 billion” says Ward.

“In China logistics is the new retail, and it won’t be long before these new players bring their models to Europe, and will be looking for partners to provide fulfilment and distribution services here,” he adds.
