Milan, Italy, 5. December 2017
Tuvia Italia under Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’; Stock Code 0636.HK), has garnered the Capital Elite Award at the China Awards 2017, in Milan, Italy.
The China Awards, co-organised by the Italy-China Foundation recognise and champion Italian and Chinese companies that have maximised opportunities of cross-border investment in both countries. Judges of the awards included senior members of the premier Italian financial newspaper MF-Milano Finanza, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China, and the University of Brescia.
Alessandro Canese, Managing Director of Tuvia Italia said, “Receiving the Capital Elite Award is a wonderful recognition of how investment opportunities for many sectors depend upon efficient logistics services. The tools to trade across borders and supply the international markets are increasingly important to today’s shippers, and we do our utmost to facilitate them, including acting as tax agent for non-EU customers wishing to set up operations in Italy.”
Tuvia Italia was recognised for its work assisting the two most famous ‘non-docking’ bicycle Chinese companies to begin operations in Italy by using its new China-Europe rail services, launched this year.
It also supported the launch of Chinese operations for an Italian e-retailer by integrating Chinese online platforms Alibaba, JD, TMall, and Yihaodian, into its own fulfilment software. Tuvia Italia was also appointed by a leading Chinese telecommunication company to run the downstream logistics operations for a strategic infrastructure project with a major telecommunication company in Italy.
In November 2017, Tuvia Italia was welcomed as a member of the Italy-China Foundation.
