Name change supports streamlined operations in Asia and the US

Summit Logistics International (‘Summit’), a global leader of international supply chain management solutions, announced today the re-branding of their Asia-based operations under the name Summit International Logistics (China), Limited, and Summit International Logistics (HK) Limited.

Formerly operating under the brand of Sea Master Logistics, Summit has decided to unify under the single Summit brand in order to ensure consistency of identification and service delivery throughout Asia and North America.

Summit will continue to offer all of the same services and will operate offices in the same locations. Summit’s current offices are located in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Fuzhou, Shanghai, Ningbo, Qingdao, Tianjin, Dalian and Taiwan.

‘We feel that the new brand for our Asia operation better unifies our services in the marketplace,’ said Bob O’Neill, CEO of Summit Logistics International. ‘The re-branding transition will be seamless to our customers. They will continue to receive the same world-class service they are accustomed to from Sea Master, only now it will be under the Summit brand.’

In 2009, Summit will handle nearly 180,000 TEUs of ocean freight for customers in the retail, apparel, furniture and electronic industries.
