Bespoke temperature-controlled facility offers easy access for eCommerce vendors
U-Freight Korea, part of the Hong Kong-based U-Freight Group, has opened a new logistics hub in Incheon to support its growing eCommerce business. The eCommerce fulfilment centre (EFC) will process domestic and cross-border eCommerce shipments for business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) fulfilment.
With the anticipated increase in eCommerce logistics volumes, especially from South Korea to Vietnam, U-Freight Korea decided to invest in a bespoke temperature-controlled facility with easy access for eCommerce vendors and buyers based in South Korea.
U-Freight Korea’s new EFC in South Korea will also house the Company’s headquarters, which is moving from the existing multipurpose warehouse located in Incheon airport’s free trade zone.
This multipurpose warehouse, which is not suitable for eCommerce logistics operations, will continue to be used for more conventional general and bulk freight forwarding operations.
Over the course of 2020, the U-Freight Group will also roll-out e+ Solutions, its logistics product designed for eCommerce start-ups, to the South Korean marketplace.
In U-Freight’s EFC in Incheon, investment has been made in the necessary hardware for storing and order processing, plus the associated software that is required for system integration and end-to-end data transparency. A wide range of value-added or customised services are also available.
