HONG KONG, Dec 9 (GCTL) - The Hong Kong Shippers’ Council (HKSC)'s chairman Willy Lin Sun-mo is scheduled to meet the Guangdong mayor today (Dec 9 ) to hand him a report explaining why logistics costs between Southern China and Hong Kong are high and wants them lowered.
In China, logistics costs are about 20 percent of total transportation costs while the logistics costs in Europe and US are just 10 percent and 8 percent respectively. "The logistics costs are high because of the excessive container terminal charges (THCs) at Chinese ports, documentation and other charges," HKSC executive director Sunny Ho said.
The meeting between Lin and the Guangdong province mayor follows a statement by Vice-Minister of Transport Xu Zuyuan, during his visit to Hong Kong to attend the Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference on Nov 25, that southern China and Hong Kong should increase collaboration in shipping and maritime activities, as well as logistics development.
