China Logistics Group Sees Domestic and International Logistics End Markets Improving in 2014 Domestic trucking expansion efforts and South American logistics routes to be key drivers of growth in 2014
SHANGHAI, February 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
China Logistics Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CHLO), an international freight forwarder and logistics management company, announced today that the Company anticipates strong growth in domestic and international end markets for its logistics operations in 2014.
Over the course of the last several years the logistics and freight forwarding industry in China has suffered from a weakness in global demand as a result of a prolonged slowdown in European as well as a significant weakness in China's domestic economy. During this time China Logistics Group began several initiatives to help to diversify its client base and expand the scope of its services. In addition to the establishment of its South American route in 2012, the company began to strengthen its domestic trucking capabilities through a leasing arrangement with a major trucking company in 2013. From a service prospective the Company focused on improving its competitive capabilities in receipt of goods, warehousing, transporting shipments, consolidation of freight, customs declaration, inspection declaration, multimodal transport, and combined large-scale logistics.
China Logistics Group believes gradual improvements in the domestic economy coupled with continued expansion of logistics exporting through its South American routes will be key drivers of growth for the Company in 2014 and beyond. Management further believes this growth will offset any further weakness in European markets.
Danny Chen, Chairman and CEO of China Logistics Group, comments, "China has been the key driver of the global economy in the past decade. As the domestic economy in China recovers, we believe our efforts to broaden our services and open new international markets place us in a strong position to benefit from improving economic trends in 2014 and beyond."
