China’s biggest carrier has revealed it will start delivering goods directly to UK customers from its mainland hub, Caminh, with the first batch expected to arrive in the first half of 2018.
China’s Caminhe Express said on Thursday it had signed a deal to build an Express delivery facility in Wigan, near Manchester, as well as expand a fleet of its domestic direct-tracked logistics vehicles.
The company, which operates through two hubs, has been using its own fleet of buses and trucks to transport goods from its main Beijing hub to the city of Manchester.
Caminhe said it had previously delivered to the US, Canada, Brazil, Germany and Spain.
In a blog post, Caim said its delivery vehicles would be used by Caminha’s direct-delivery service, which will be operated by an “independent third party”.
Caim Express is the world’s largest direct-commerce carrier, with more than 2,000 logistics vehicles, including 4,000 direct-haul vehicles, and 300 direct-passenger buses, according to the company.
Last month, Cammah said it was looking to increase direct-transportation to over one million vehicles a year from 100,000 in 2018.
