CLC is happy to present the 2nd Issue of its newsletter in the year 2012. CLC members who have joined us recently (or missed the previous CLC newsletters), can read the same on our website: http://www.chinalogisticsclub.com/category/newsletter/china-logistics-club-newsletter.

Upcoming Logistics Events
At CLC, we always suggest that our members attend as many events as possible every year in order to strengthen or establish business relationships. At these events, it is the one to one meetings that build long time partnerships. Without these meetings there is, in our opinion, little chance of developingbusiness.
14th International Freight Forwarders & Logistics Cooperation Forum (Chongqing 2012)
Monday, 25th March 2012 - Wednesday, 28th March 2012
Hotel Le Meridian Chongqing, Nan’an
The reason for having a conference in Chongqing is because it has become a major manufacturing hub, an automotive and motorcycle hub, and a new Gateway to Europe (with a new train service from Chongqing to Europe with an expected transit time of only 12 days). Chongqing is also China’s largest city with a population of some 32 million people, and therefore is a consumer hub as well.
Some of the companies with operations in Chongqing are: Microsoft, Coca Cola, Mazda, Ford, BP, Lafarge, Honeywell, Fiat, Volvo, Ericsson, Honda, Continental, Denso, Wal Mart, Johnson Control, Visteon, Apple, Pepsi, BASF, Danone, NTT Group.
Chongqing has huge exports of motor cycle engines and spare parts to South America and Africa. Therefore we hope that a good number of South American and Africa members will attend. As Chongqing is the world’s major automotive hub, we would expect freight forwarders handing automotive clients would be interested in attending. Already many members have indicated they are interested in coming to Chongqing.

China’s Chongqing Municipality has announced the opening of new rail route later in the year, aimed at linking Southwest China with ASEAN states. The route of container cargo will use the Yunkunmianyue International Railway, which begins in Chongqing and runs through the provinces of Guizhou and Yunnan, eventually linking China to Vietnam, Myanmar and the Indian Ocean.

The rail line connecting Chongqing, Xinjiang to Belarus, Duisburg will be extended by 202 kilometres to Antwerp this year, reports Xinhua.
The extended route will shorten shipments from Chongqing to Belgium to 16 days. In addition, according to a customs clearance facilitation agreement signed between China and Belgium, shipments on this route will only be inspected once at the Belgium customs, eliminating the repetition of inspection at customs of other countries, which greatly enhances efficiency.

Message from Alphatrans Ltd.
ALPHATRANS LTD, a CLC member from Ukraine would like to share following message with the fellow CLC members:
They wrote to us “You probably heard about cold weather in Ukraine. Click here to view some pictures of Odessa port harbor for better impression (http://www.chinalogisticsclub.com/newsletters/ukraine_winter.html). Such cold happens here once in 3-5 years and then it is a real disaster for local infrastructure. Vessels cannot berth due strong wind and heavy ice; some vessels were diverted to Constantza. According to forecast weather should improve after 15-Feb. I hope that info will be interesting for CLC members.”
