New Zealand Post has signed a strategic agreement with the Henan Bonded Logistics Centre (HNBLC). The two companies signed the agreement at the NZ Post Auckland Operations Centre on Wednesday. The signing was attended by senior representatives of the People’s Government of Henan Province who included Chen Run’er, the Governor of Henan.
The HMBLC processes more than 90 million domestic parcels in China and more than half of all the province’s cross-border trade. Trademonster has a strategic alliance with New Zealand Post and also has a number of strong relationships with the major e-commerce platforms in China. This is key for New Zealand’s SME businesses that seek to enter China.
New Zealand Post chief executive Brian Roche said the agreement is testament to the trust and loyalty that has been developed between the New Zealand Government and the Henan Government.
“Chief Executive of Henan Imported Materials Public Bonded Center Group Co Ltd Madam Xu Ping brought her senior team to New Zealand to meet with our heads of business and to consolidate the business trading lanes that are now actively open between our two countries.
“This provides New Zealand traders with simplified access to one of the largest consumer markets in the world.”
Dene Green, General Manager of New Zealand Post International, said the Trademonster relationship, which is headed by Managing Director Gavin Yang, is one of the most exciting and supportive cross-border agreements NZ Post has ever had.
“NZ post carried more than 7 million items between New Zealand and China last year. Supported by strong relationships such as these, this is forecast to grow by up to 15% over the next 12-18 months as more Kiwis shop online and more Kiwi companies grow their ecommerce capability and sell into overseas markets.”
