SHANGHAI, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- China Logistics Group, Inc. (OTC QB: CHLO), an international freight forwarder and logistics management company, announced today that management has begun to explore plans to establish its own warehouse facility for international and domestic storage and logistics. The company believes this strategy would serve to complement its current international freight forwarding, logistics management, and trucking services.
The Company is considering plans to purchase or lease land use rights to an 80,000 square meter parcel of land in Dafeng City in Jiangsu Province for the warehouse operation which would serve as a storage hub to service this growing port city. Dafeng port is the only deep-water port in the central Jiangsu coast making it an ideal location for this type of operation. Management is evaluating plans to build 40,000 square meters of warehouse space featuring high-bay storage, optional temperature-controlled space, sprinkler systems, drive-in doors, and specialty equipment. Management will explore a number of alternatives to finance the project should the company decide to move forward including direct loans, joint ventures and government incentive programs.
Danny Chen, Chairman and CEO of China Logistics Group, commented "As we continue to look to build our capabilities for the future, the strategy of providing our own warehouse as a center of storage, distribution and transfer at key locations is an important goal for China Logistics Group. By providing proprietary storage, along with transportation and logistics management, we can add substantial value for our clients through a full turnkey solution. We are evaluating this project because it is adjacent to our trucking transportation headquarters, enabling easy and efficient transportation options for domestic distribution as well as to the port. We would also have the ability to use the services of our transportation partner's network out of this location to enable us to seamlessly move goods from this location to any point in China. We intend to fully explore all aspects of this opportunity as we believe it could serve as a model for us to expand in other locations and provide substantial future growth."
