A strategic partnership has been penned by DB Schenker and Sichuan JiuYe Export – a China-based B2B food trading company – for cooperation on the logistics and movement of perishables.
Sichuan JiuYe provides cross border one-stop supply chain services to agriculture, food e-commerce and food companies in China and abroad. It’s man export market is eastern Europe and major import markets are Australia, North America and Europe.
The company says by using DB Schenker as a freight forwarding provider for its perishable goods, it will benefit from a strong global network and extensive market experience as it looks to grow its business in current and new markets.
DB Schenker considers JiuYe as an important strategic partner to strengthen and develop its footprint in the perishable sector in China.

DB Schenker chief executive officer for North/Central China, Thomas Sorensen says the partnership will bring it closer to the goal of achieving a leading position in the logistics of perishables in China.
