Taiwan-based 3PL opens in Seattle, taking its network in North America to 21 owned offices
Dimerco has broadened its North American footprint with the opening of a new office in the Pacific North West region.
Located in Seattle, the new facility takes the Taiwanese 3PL’s network in North America to 21 owned offices.
Dimerco said it would offer the benefits associated with US Free Trade Zones already available to Dimerco customers in Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
“Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the US, with a strong economy and dynamic business environment,” said Kenneth Leung, District General Manager of US West District of Dimerco Express (U.S.A.) Corp.
“The Port of Seattle, which also operates Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, is the 8th largest airport in the United States and is a major gateway for trade with Asia.
“Seattle is a Free Trade Zone, which means that customers can expect improved inventory management, with no storage limits and fewer regulatory requirements for re-export, as well as capped Merchandise Processing Fees (MPF).
“The Free Trade Zone environment will enable us to help our customers achieve better cash flow and significant cost saving opportunities.”
The Seattle office will largely focus on air exports, particularly of aerospace, medical & health and electrical equipment. It will also target diversified cargo, including but not limited to perishable goods such as seafood and fruit.
Dimerco has been expanding rapidly in North America in recent years, with revenue up by over 20% year-on-year in Q1 to USD$35m. This compared to the expansion of Dimerco Express Group global revenue to USD$133m in Q1, an increase of nearly 5% compared with the previous year.
