The companies Deloitte, Ehrhardt + Partner, ProLogis, Dr. Schmidt & Collegen, SGS and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics have formed a cooperation to offer total solutions and comprehensive consultation for the Chinese market.
The official launch event took place on March 25, 2008 in the Düsseldorf China Centre (DCC). Representatives of management from all the participating companies announced the future strategic cooperation in a ceremonial atmosphere.
The cooperation of these companies was initiated by Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. The goal of the full service program is to use individual consultation to introduce European companies to the Asian market with particular emphasis to the Chinese market.
Moreover, the Chinese company China-Desk will support business activities in Europe. This is due to the fact that different legal and tax systems, advertising environments, along with cultural differences make for high entry barriers to China and can often interfere with successful entry to the country’s markets.
With the specialised partner network, consultation can now be provided on the main points of market entry strategy, quality management, product security, global logistics solutions, international tax law, corporate finance, human resources and IT solutions.
Felix Scherberich, who is responsible for Supply Chain Management at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, commented:
“It is a clear competitive advantage for our companies when we can offer the entire spectrum from one source. With these partners, custom-made solutions will be developed and made by top professionals along the entire value added chain.”
Martin Meyer, Managing Director of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK concluded:
“The cooperation between these leading firms will no doubt be a great benefit to the UK network and businesses wanting to expand into the Asian market. The greatest advantage is that every network always has the support of Hellmann’s global network so when an initiative such as this one is introduced, it will be utilised to its full potential.”
