DGX, sister company to DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express, recently celebrating its 25th year as a freight forwarder and logistics provider, is marking its quarter century with the opening of the company’s first full service facility in China. The new office is headquartered in Shanghai, China’s most important commercial city.

In making the announcement, Bradley J. Dechter, DGX President, stated, “The opening of our Shanghai office is the start of a major DHX commitment to China trade. Already the most dynamic trading partner with the US, China will continue to grow its volume in the years ahead. DGX wants to be part of this growth.”

The new China facility operates as DGX-Shanghai, Inc. Simon Su, a veteran of the Sino-US freight forwarding market, is Managing Director of the new facility. He heads a staff of trained professionals.

Commented Dechter, “Unlike the vast majority of US forwarders who contract independent agents in China and have no control of their operations, our new Shanghai office is staffed by DGX full time employees who work exclusively for our company. Based on our 25 years of experience, we have learned that only a thoroughly trained professional staff can consistently provide the high level of service DGX customers expect.”

The new facility offers a complete range of logistic services including air and ocean transportation, consolidation, inventory control, packaging and packing, customs clearance, project cargo services and local transportation consulting.

DGX can quote through rates to any inland point in China aided by an on site network located in key cities including Dalien/Xingang/Qingbo/Xiamen.

The Shanghai office is being linked to DGX’s worldwide IT system for instant tracking, tracing and retrieving. “China now is part of DGX’s worldwide electronic network,” Dechter stressed.
