Bolloré Logistics recently opened its Hainan branch office in Haikou to support customers and business partners’ supply chains, as the tourism and travel retail/duty free sales market continues to grow.
Bolloré Logistics has added a new charter service to Hainan to cater for the island’s duty-free shopping demand.
According to a press release they will offer end-to-end customized transportation and logistics services, to serve the needs of customers and the local market.
Despite Hainan FTP being on track to become the largest duty-free and travel retail market in the world, there are several challenges that come with the fast-growing business.
One of those challenges is the supply chain being unable to cope with the huge surge in demand. Out of stock situations are bad for business and overall consumer perception of the duty free and travel retail industry.
The weekly service was launched after the logistics operator signed a cooperation agreement with the Hainan Provincial Bureau of International Economic Development (IEDB) and Haikou Comprehensive Bonded Zone Management Committee.
The service will operate between Singapore and Haikou via Hong Kong carrying items such as perfumes and cosmetics and luxury retail brands.
Sun Bo, vice mayor of Haikou City, said; “The launch of the new air charter service, together with the distribution hub that Bollore Logistics will build in Haikou, will support Haikou’s strategic development plan to be an international travel retail centre.”
Bolloré Logistics office in Haikou, Hainan is located at:
Room 9002, 9F Windows to Global Trade No. 15A, Guoxing Avenue, Meilan District, Haikou, Hainan, 570203 – CHINA
