The Australian integrated logistics company, Wiseway Group, will commence operations on the ground in the United States with a new facility opening in Los Angeles in July 2021.
The company is expanding its services in order to meet the growing customer demand for Trans-Pacific integrated logistics services.
Wiseway has a network of strategically located warehouses and facilities in Australian and New Zealand, with a large modern fleet of trucks and delivery vehicles. It was established in 2005 and has grown to become one of the top three outbound air freight logistics providers in Australia with a special focus on Australia and China trade.
The move to the United States is a significant step in the company’s organic growth strategy. It strengthens its global integrated logistics service offering and enhances access for its existing customers to the US market, one of the largest freight and logistics markets in the world.
Roger Tong, Wiseway CEO, said, “This is an exciting milestone in our well measured growth journey which started in Australia more than ten years ago, and this step will expand our addressable market, diversify our income streams, and cement our position as a global freight and integrated logistics operator.
“Wiseway has completed the required registration process and will operate a lean model for its in-country operations with a highly experienced team strategically based in Los Angeles, California.”
Los Angeles is a strategic hub in Australia’s Trans-Pacific trade, being the largest inbound and outbound freight destination in North America according to the Bureau of the Infrastructure, Transport, and Regional Economics in 2020. It is also the fourth largest inbound freight destination globally.
“We have a strong track record in successfully growing our business across borders in new and complementary markets,” Mr Tong said.
“Our experience in global operations and our strong balance sheet will ensure a smooth execution of this opportunity and create long-term value for our customers and shareholders.”
