New office in Beijing

LEMAN expands in China

11. mai

OPENING OF OFFICE NUMBER SIX

It is a little over a month ago since LEMAN announced its entry into China and subsequently opened the doors to five offices in Shanghai, Ningbo, Tianjin, Shenzhen and Qingdao. After a flying start and overwhelming interest from existing and new clients, LEMAN now announces the opening of its sixth office - this time in Beijing.

“We have received really good response after we planted the LEMAN flag in China and thus on a whole new continent. We knew very well that there was a great business potential hidden in expanding to the country due to the great importance it has for world trade. However, interest in our services has increased to such an extent that we now have to open yet another office to be able to keep up with the demand,” says Thomas Krøyer, Group CEO at LEMAN.

At the same time, Thomas Krøyer emphasizes that it is part of an ongoing process; looking at initiatives that can help realize the company's ambitious growth strategy, which involves doubling road transport and tripling the sea and air freight business areas over the next few years. He therefore does not rule out the possibility of further office openings in China.

The office in Beijing officially opens on 12 May and is staffed by skilled and experienced employees who are ready to roll up their sleeves and make a difference for all clients from day one. After the opening, LEMAN will be present in six of the largest logistics hubs in China. Janus Grimnitz, Country CEO of LEMAN China, is also very happy about the announcement:

“In China and in Asia in general, close relationships mean everything, and it therefore gives us a huge advantage that we are physically present with our own offices and people in the big cities. We can provide our clients with even better service and access to a broader range of supply chain solutions. So I am very happy that we are now expanding further and living up to our official Chinese name LAIMAN, which symbolizes spreading and sprouting grass”.
