DHL-Sinotrans, the leading air express company in China, launched mobile stations in downtown Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen to provide companies with convenient pick-up facilities.

The move will help optimize shipment routes for express items and extend cut-off times for customers, according to Wu Dongming,managing directorofDHL-Sinotrans International Air Courier Ltd andexecutive vice-president ofDHL Express Asia Pacific.

The mobile stations will also help tackle logistic issues in urban centers.

The DHL-Sinotrans, established in 1986 as a joint venture between DHL and China National Foreign Trade Transportation (Group) Corp, has deployed eight vehicles in the three cities, extending the pick-up time by up to 60 minutes.

In Beijing, DHL-Sinotrans extends pick-up cut-off time for customers in areas around Guomao and Zhongguancun. In Shanghai, the service is in place within the CBD area.

The vehicles use a 3G wireless signal to access the DHL’s operations network.
