UWL opens first office in China

UWL, an American-owned NVOCC and provider of 3PL services, has expanded its global presence with the opening of its first office in China in Shanghai’s Bund area. UWL will start servicing customers on 1 December 2022.

"2021 and 2022 were years of tremendous challenge for UWL and our customer base, who, to this day, remain heavily invested in China and Asia for their manufacturing needs," commented UWL president, Duncan Wright.

The Shanghai location is the fourth new office opening for UWL in the last 12 months, following an office in Chicago, US in November 2021, and in Long Beach, US and Vietnam in April 2022.

"We are in the final stages of delivering system and process training and we look forward to taking customer bookings," said UWL vice president Martin Karczewski, whose team is responsible for carrier and agent relationships worldwide.

Additionally, according to UWL, this expansion in China will bring WorldScope, UWL’s proprietary supply chain visibility tool, to more customers. Users can utilise WorldScope to track shipments, manage invoices and documents, and even book export shipments, all from one portal.
