Hongyuan Group has inaugurated its logistics hub at Brussels Airport as it seeks to continue its rapid growth in Europe.

The Chinese logistics services provider has been operating at Brussels Airport since October 2020 with charter flights using multiple airlines, and has now signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the airport as its main gateway in Europe.

It says that developing the “Air Silk Road” between China and Belgium has made it necessary to expand infrastructure and find a new strategic location.

Hongyuan is the first Chinese logistics company at Brussels Airport to take its services to this level, and it has signed a long-term lease on a 8,000 square metre warehouse, which will serve as its European headquarters.

Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport says: “Being part of the Hongyuan network strengthens our role as the gateway to Europe for their Chinese and European clients.”

Cling Guo, Director of Hongyuan Group Europe says: “We have the ambition to become a key partner in the world of logistics around Brussels Airport. In the future, we want to gradually open additional international freight routes such as Europe, America and Southeast Asia and increase export business to China.”
