Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) logistics subsidiary, Hong Kong Air Cargo Industry Services Limited (Hacis) recently announced they had extended their SuperLink China Direct (SLCD) scheduled road feeder services to Zhuhai in China and the western Pearl River Delta (PRD).
The new SLCD services were formulated by a collaboration with a Chu Kong Shipping Enterprises (Group) Company Limited (CKS) subsidiary company. A strategic partnership was agreed and signed by app parties concerned to further the development of joint logistics across the western PRD.
Many technology companies and manufacturers of electronic equipment are based in the western PRD, and both Hacis and CKS have identified the potential demand for air-road intermodal services to serve this sector. The increase in demand is a result of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge opening, which now allows for a faster and more cost-effective option for connecting to and from Hong Kong International Airport.
Managing Director for Hacis, Vivien Lau said, Hacis is now able to take full advantage of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to provide fast and efficient road feeder services to and from its new depot in Civet Port – the ninth Hacis mainland Chinese location.
“The depot is ideally-located at Hongwan, in Zhuhai’s Nanping Town, adjacent to the Zhuhai Free Trade Zone. This new SLCD route will cover Zhuhai, and additional centres in the western PRD such as Zhongshan, Jiangmen, as well as the Hengqin special economic district and Macau. We can also now serve Zhuhai airport, so extending coverage to other mainland cities by air.”
