APL Logistics opens Bangladesh quality centers

 
The two centers, in the capital city of Dhaka and at Bangladesh’s biggest port Chittagong, are in close proximity to Bangladesh’s garment manufacturers. They also offer other value-added services, such as pick-and-pack, labeling and scanning.

We are seeing many more pricing requests for Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Few actually moved their supply chains outside of China because this will take time, especially for larger shippers. However, Taiwan and South Korea are in a unique situation: Some manufacturing had shifted to mainland China in the last decade due to lower costs, but that infrastructure is still in Taiwan and South Korea. Some manufacturing may temporarily shift back there until Southeast Asia infrastructure catches up.
