Skytruck Becomes Fracht USA
December 15, 2014
 

It was and still is a perfect partnership with Skytruck for our airfreight activities in the USA. They have been part of the Fracht family for 7 years now and what belongs together comes together and eventually becomes whole.

We are very pleased and proud to announce that the Fracht Group is acquiring Skytruck Air/Sea Transport Inc. effective January 1st, 2015.

Arrangements have been made for a smooth transition. All staff will remain on bord and we will also be able to rely on the experienced leadership of our colleagues and so long owners of the company. Responsibilities will change but technically nothing else but the name of our airfreight “division”. Skytruck becomes Fracht. For easier reference we let you have all contact information at one glance.

U.S., Mexico Sign Mutual Recognition Arrangement
October 20, 2014
 

On October 17, 2014, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske and Mexico's Tax Administration Service (SAT) Chief Aristóteles Núñez Sánchez signed a mutual recognition arrangement that allows stronger collaboration between CBP's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) Program and SAT's New Certified Companies Scheme (NEEC).

The goal of the mutual recognition arrangement is to link the two industry partnership programs, so that together they create a unified and sustainable security posture that can assist in securing and facilitating global cargo trade.

The arrangement provides tangible and intangible benefits to program members to include: fewer exams when shipping cargo, a faster validation process, common standards, efficiency for Customs and business, transparency between Customs administrations, business resumption, front-of-the-line processing, and marketability.

If you would like to allow C-TPAT to share your company information with SAT, please navigate within your C-TPAT Portal account to the Mutual Recognition screen (section 3.8), and check the box for Mexico. Information that will be shared will be:

  • Company name
  • Company identifiers (i.e., SCAC, IOR, MID)
  • Program Status
  • Date of membership

By allowing C-TPAT to share this information with NEEC, it may reduce the number of site visits necessary to obtain membership in NEEC.

Fracht Netherlands - Changed Address Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Office
June 13, 2014
 

During the Whitsun (Pentecost) weekend our office in Hoofddorp (Amsterdam Schiphol Airport) has moved within the cargo centre "De Hoek" to a new location.
The new location is situated direct above the warehouse giving our staff direct access to your shipments, without delays.

Given by increased demands of our customers and colleague offices to offer VAL (Value Added Logistic) services at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport we have decided to make this intern move within the cargo centre "The Hoek".

The warehouse is customs bonded and AEOcertified, operated in close cooperation with our preferred trucking partner: Thomsen Select.
Cargoes can be transferred directly from the airlines into the warehouse also in the weekends (!) where we can split or separate shipments, take care of order or sample picking, labeling of cartons etc. Short-time storage is possible as well.

The new correspondence and visiting address as from now on is:

FRACHT NETHERLANDS ®
Zandsteen 42-44

Ind. terrein De Hoek
2132 MR  Hoofddorp

Telephone and e-mail addresses wil remain unchanged:
General phone :+ 31 (0) 20 654 73 80

April 8, 2014
 

We are pleased in announcing that the registration of our office in Ningbo has formally been approved by the authorities and that our office will be official going on line on May 5th, 2014.

Fracht (Shanghai) Ltd – Ningbo Branch
Rm 21-5;21-6,
No. 455 East Zhongshan Rd.
JiangDong District,

Email: terry.lin@fracht-ningbo.com

In his function Terry will report to our General Manager Operation, Mrs. Leila Duan-Collins directly. Terry’s main function is to overseas all local operational matters in close co-operation with our local partners (customs broker, hauliers, shipping line or terminals etc.).

In the Zhejiang Province, Ningbo is the main gateway for sea freight and its container terminal was ranked 6th in the world in 2012 with a total volume of 16.83 Mio TEU’s handled. Zhejiang's main manufacturing sectors are electromechanical industries, textiles, chemical industries, food, and construction materials. In recent years Zhejiang has followed its own development model, dubbed the "Zhejiang model", which is based on prioritizing and encouraging entrepreneurship, an emphasis on small businesses responsive to the whims of the market, large public investments into infrastructure, and the production of low-cost goods in bulk for both domestic consumption and export. As a result, Zhejiang has made itself one of the richest provinces, and the "Zhejiang spirit" has become something of a legend within China.

Some facts:

Zhejiang Province:
 
Population (2013): 54,890,000
GDP (2013): CNY 3.7568 trillion US$ 606.601 billion (4th)
Per capita: CNY 68,462 US$ 11,055 (5th)
 
Ningbo:
 
Population: 7,605,689
GDP: CNY 605.92 billion (USD 93.81 billion)
Per capita: CNY 79,523 (USD 12,312)
