U-Freight Korea, part of the Hong Kong-based U-Freight Group, has opened a new logistics hub in Incheon to support its growing e-commerce business.

The E-commerce fulfilment centre will process domestic and cross-border e-commerce shipments for business-to-business and business-to-consumer fulfilment.

With the anticipated increase in e-commerce logistics volumes, especially from South Korea to Vietnam, U-Freight Korea decided to invest in a bespoke temperature-controlled facility with easy access for e-commerce vendors and buyers based in South Korea.

U-Freight Korea’s new facility in South Korea will also house the company’s headquarters, which is moving from the the existing multi-purpose warehouse located in Incheon airport’s free trade zone.

This multi-purpose warehouse, which is not suitable for e-commerce 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 e-commerce start-ups, to the South Korean marketplace.
