Dimerco Express Group executives, Mr. Jeffrey Shih, Vice President of South East Asia, Mr. Raymund Hsu, Ocean Director of South East Asia, and Mr. Austin Chiang, Country Manager of Dimerco Express (Thailand) Co., Ltd. were recently invited to an interview by Global Views, a well-known magazine in Taiwan, sharing our industry leading experience and special insights on Thailand market as well as cross border road freight (CBRF). The article has been posted on Global Views Magazine (page 192-195) and its website in March, 2017.
Global Views' Website (in Chinese): https://www.gvm.com.tw/Boardcontent_32811.html
Summary of the interview in English:
Dimerco Express Group, ranked as Top 10 Asia Pacific 3PLs, has been operated Cross Border Road Freight (CBRF) successfully for more than a decade. Dimerco has always been able to provide contingency logistics plans for customers to quickly respond to risks and natural disasters. Take Thailand as an example, in 2008, political violence and prolonged demonstration in Bangkok, road blockage resulted in severe traffic congestion to/from major airports; in 2011, natural disaster in the form of massive flood covered many provinces, and severely affected seven major industrial estates in central region for 2 months—during each incident, Dimerco has been able to provide its semi-conductor clients with alternative contingency plans to resolve the problems, including road freight, sea freight, and provincial airports alternative route solutions, and providing assistance to transport machinery and materials from flooded factory to re-activate other plants and overcome the crisis efficiently.
"Thailand plays a crucial role on its connectivity in South East Asia region", said Mr. Jeffrey Shih, Vice President in South East Asia Region of Dimerco Express Group. Jeffrey also indicated that the location of Bangkok is more superior than Singapore, and even its operation function is acting as hub for air freight. In addition, Thailand is the second largest ASEAN economy, followed by Indonesia. Its market hinterland is much larger than Singapore. Another future opportunity is AEC (ASEAN Economic Community), free tax policy within AEC will bring benefits especially for logistics industry in Thailand.

Key Factors to The Success of Dimerco Express Group in Cross Border eCommerce Market
11/09--Dimerco Transforms Fashion Logistics with New Business Model and IT Capability
Satisfying the enormous appetite for quality designer US apparel in China, the world’s biggest and fastest growing online market, Taiwan based freight forwarding and logistics specialist Dimerco is transforming fashion logistics to perfect the customer experience in preparation for the eCommerce shopping festival, Double 11.
Employing its innovative IT integration capability and forming solid relationships with reliable last-mile carriers, Dimerco is working with Revolve Clothing, a well-known Los Angeles based luxury clothing & accessories brand to enable online consumers in China and Hong Kong to enjoy a comprehensive shopping experience with faster, trackable delivery of their goods.
Dimerco leads the way in establishing a new B2B2C business model which offers a 30% saving in freight costs and relies on the close co-operation between online fashion retailer, freight forwarder (Dimerco) and local couriers.
As Mr. Edward Lin, Dimerco Express Group CEO explains: “eCommerce in China is growing at an incredible rate and we could see that fulfilment and customer satisfaction were key areas for improvement, particularly over the final mile. Online customers in China no matter where they are located, are beginning to demand the same service shopping experience as their global counterparts so we began to look at the entire logistics process from the location of our warehouses to making relationships with reliable carriers and of course, for customers, providing that single point of contact for queries, complaints and feedback.”
From its HK warehouse Dimerco provides a quick turnaround service with 800 packages a day processed in 2 hours before hand-over to local couriers. Harnessing the latest EDI technology, customers can easily track their deliveries online.
This fashion logistics model will put Dimerco’s client in a strong position for Double 11 which according to one of the largest online retailers in China, JD.com, typically witnesses a threefold increase in the number of shipments and sales of imported goods to keep pace with consumer demand.

11/04--Dimerco continues growth in China as new offices opening carry out its dual-brand strategy
Taiwan based freight forwarding and logistics specialist Dimerco has added to its growing footprint in China, with Diversified International Transportation (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Guangzhou Branch and Dimerco Zhongjing Int'l Express Co., Ltd. Guangzhou Branch sales offices in Shunde along with sales offices in Taicang for its subsidiary Dimerco International Transportation (Shanghai) Co. to carry out its dual-brand strategy, which allows the company to enhance service quality and value.
According to Mr. Edward Lin, Dimerco Express Group CEO, the company is targeting sales growth in the area, particularly in ocean freight.“While we are already in a strong positon with our air freight service, we focus also on the ocean freight development and hub operation in Southern China, especially in Guangzhou, which has continuously increasing volume since the end of 2015. And due to high demand that most local freight forwarders are unable to meet, on the ocean freight market we have recognised the potential for cooperation between Taicang port and Yangshan port, which provides more efficient and cost-effective barge services compared with traditional transportation modes. Our new offices will enable us to better serve customers in the equipment, material applications and auto parts industries.”
The move comes at the same time as the announcement by the China Communication and Transportation Association (CCTA) of the Advanced Logistics Company Awards 2016, which once again features Dimerco. The awards ceremony was held on Oct.31 in Suining City, Sichuan Province, China.
Earlier this year, Dimerco subsidiaries were listed in the CIFA (China International Freight Forwarders Association) 100 Top China Forwarding & Logistics Enterprises as well as the 50 Top China Air Cargo Enterprises lists.

10/31--Dimerco Wins New Business with Unprecedented Speed
Just two weeks after being invited to the initial bid, Taiwan-based logistics and freight-forwarding specialist Dimerco Express Group shipped 30 tons of oversized petrochemical pumps for one of the largest national oil companies in China, from Los Angeles in USA to Tianjin in China, via airfreight.
Dimerco’s District Sales Director of North China, Mr. Alexander King, who spearheaded the project to expedite the over-sized shipment by airfreight, stated:
“To manage the project complexity and meet our customer’s extremely tight deadline, we leveraged our local expertise, relationship with two selected airlines and local customs, network of contacts and innovative use of social media.”
The Dimerco team not only took the strategic decision to split the shipment into two routes into China, but also collaborated efficiently with selected carriers and contacts at Tianjin Customs, clearing the split shipments within 24 hours, while effectively maintaining real-time communication with both customer and Dimerco team members via a group chat social media channel, providing live updates from start to finish.
Mr. King concluded, “This recent success highlights that Dimerco’s strong proposition is landing well with customers as we continue to build an enviable reputation within the Oil and Gas sector in the region, particularly among customers that value tactical and service excellence.

10/12--How to release your Hanjin operated containers in Singapore port terminal
FAQ on Handling of Hanjin-Operated Containers in Singapore
1. What is PSA (The Port of Singapore Authority) doing to manage this current situation?
Since September 2016, PSA has been working closely with Hanjin, shippers and consignees to facilitate the delivery of local import containers, as well as the loading and transfer of transhipment containers bound for other destinations.
To date, PSA Singapore has berthed and serviced more than a dozen Hanjin container ships, and facilitated the release of over 3,000 laden containers to affected parties.
PSA is also utilizing container yard space to store more than 3,500 empty containers that have been collected so far, and as such, acting as a container depot. No cost or resources have been spared in ensuring these boxes are consolidated at our yards in PSA Singapore Terminals 1 (ST1).
2. How can I move my containers to their final destinations once they are unloaded from Hanjin and alliance vessels into your port area?
Three methods are available to tranship containers to their final destination; you may wish to consider these options and follow up with Hanjin directly:
(1) Transloading – the Hanjin container is unstuffed and restuffed into another non-Hanjin box to be transported on to its final destination.* This may be undertaken at PSA’s Keppel Distripark, which is directly linked to PSA ST1; it is located within the Free Trade Zone, allowing exemption from the Goods and Services Tax. The shipper can choose from a wide range of operators in Keppel Distripark to carry out transloading of the container.
(2) Shipper-owned container – the shipper takes over the lease or sub-leases of the container from Hanjin and arranges with another shipping line to deliver the container to its final destination port. Handling charges (i.e. storage, discharging, etc.) will be paid to PSA by the shipper.
(3) Direct interchange – the shipper chooses to arrange with Hanjin for another shipping line to take over the lease of the container and transport it on to its final destination.
3. I have a Hanjin container for local import. How can I collect it?
The process for local import has been as follows: Hanjin containers are discharged from ships, and these are then stacked in PSA’s container yards. Once a refundable deposit has been paid (to ensure the return of empty containers for consolidation purposes), the container can then be transported out of the port area to be unstuffed for local import. The deposit will be refunded after the same but empty container is returned to PSA’s yards.
4. How much will it cost for me to collect my container for local import?
A refundable deposit of S$5,000 per container is required to be made to PSA Corporation Ltd, either in the form of a cashier’s order or via internet banking, before taking delivery from PSA of any such import Hanjin container. The Deposit will be refunded upon the return of the same, but empty, container (i.e. after un-stuffing) to PSA’s yard. The relevant consignee will also be required to pay PSA for discharging stevedorage.

06/08--Dimerco Hosts 2016 Annual Shareholders' Meeting
First of all, on behalf of the Board of Directors, Chairman and the company management team, thank you for your continued support and concern for the Dimerco Express Group. Thank you very much for attending the shareholders’ meeting. We sincerely hope that by taking this opportunity all of you can support, and assist us by continuing to construct brand advantages, strengthen organization and emphasize the value of innovation.. Dimerco staff will certainly make every effort to stabilize the growth of corporate performance, successfully complete the annual target budget, and meet shareholder’s expectations.
Dimerco has been continuously accelerating its global development plan. Currently, the company’s global network includes 17 countries covering Asia, North America, Europe, and Australia with more than 143 locations worldwide. The company has two brands. Dimerco focuses on air freight services, while Diversified Freight System (DFS) focuses on sea freight services. This dual-brand strategy allows the company to enhance service quality and value by providing increased support and customized services including transportation, logistics, cargo insurance, import/export customs and inspections, domestic China transportation, cross-border road freight in Asia, Central European cross-border railway and cross-border e-commerce.
In 2015, although the US market economy was still gradually recovering, the main markets such as China, due to structural adjustment, continued to be impacted by a slowdown in economic development and growth. The global economy, trade, and the fluctuations of currency exchange were becoming more unstable and unpredictable. International crude oil prices and fuel surcharges dropped 50% compared with the same period last year, and FCL freight has also simultaneously decreased. Although Dimerco’s air tonnage and ocean volume were close to the previous year, the growth of turnover was affected. Dimerco continued to optimize operations and with the powerful Information system operating margin increased from 13.95% to 15.07% compared with the same period last year. Since Dimerco continued to invest in human resources and strengthen the company's competitiveness, thus operating expenses increased by 5.28% compared with Y2014. Even though it caused a decline in profits compared with the previous year, however it also strengthened the foundation for future growth. Dimerco announced 2015 full year results with a consolidated turnover of NTD 15.549 Billion, a decrease of 8.4% compared with the prior year, after-tax net income also decreased 35.92% from NTD 214 Million to NTD 137 Million in 2015 and after-tax earnings per share (EPS) NTD1.08, decreased NTD 0.58 compared (EPS) 1.66 in 2014. The board of directors’ meeting passed a cash dividend of NTD 1.02 per share same as last year.
Looking forward to 2016, global economic growth concerns and obstacles are still prevalent. Dimerco will continue to actively develop business and invest in North America, Europe, India, China and Southeast Asia. . In accordance with the established policy of global operations and plans in the "Greater China economic region” as the mother market, Dimerco Express Group used organizational forces to integrate sales and customer service throughout the combat team to develop new business and continue to secure a number of multinational customers and cross-border services such as e-commence supplier Jing dong Mall and Alibaba.. The overall turnover will be able to continue to grow steadily in the near future.
In order to integrate the continuous line of international transportation and logistics services, Dimerco will develop a system called “eCall Freight System®” which can strengthen front end trucks calling, pick-up and delivery services.
By operating this program, Dimerco can unify both data stream and information flow with local logistics partners. Furthermore, Dimerco will create a substantial data base to improve the safety of cargo freight and maximize operational efficiency and quality of service.
Dimerco is a leading international transportation and logistics firm that has been providing professional services for more than 40 years based on a corporate culture of strong ethics and customer commitment. Dimerco will continue to expand its business with the concept of globalization, i.e. network globalization, product diversification and operation localization.
Through this continued innovation, the company was granted two patents (US and Taiwan) based on the Dimerco Value Plus System. The Value Plus 3.0 will be released the next half year of 2016:
1. Taiwan and US Patent: "Consolidation Yield Management System and Method©". This system specializes in optimizing operations, increasing the efficiency of integrating all transportation systems, strengthening cargo consolidation functions and achieving environmental standards by preventing resource waste. The system also helps to increase consolidated cargo yields and minimize cargo damage.
2. Taiwan and U.S. Patent: Data Synchronization Method. This method can effectively combine all data uploaded to a server system from all Dimerco branches worldwide and store the data in a central database. The corporation can then use a business intelligence tool with reporting features to provide accurate data reports requested by global customers in real time.
A leader in China, Dimerco entered the market in 1991 and has since steadily expanded our service network. As of 2015, the company has established offices at 70 locations in China, even obtaining the “China Well-known Trademark” accolade awarded by the Trademark Office of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce of the People’s Republic of China.
To successfully manage a global marketing service network and have the ability to manage information and data while providing B2B cross-border logistics services, Dimerco has taken a leadership position in tapping the wealth of data made available in the Internet era and through rapid developments in the Internet of Things (IoT). Utilizing Web 2.0 concepts, Dimerco developed the Dimerco Value Plus System, a service platform that combines international logistics management, sales, operations, finance and other services to provide a high-quality comprehensive solution for clients. The platform’s real-time centralized information system optimizes internal management and external integration capabilities to further enhance the value offered to customers' supply chain management.
The Dimerco Value Plus System has allowed the company to successfully compete with much larger service providers for business opportunities. Relying on the Internet and IoT to form an integrated strategic platform, Dimerco can provide global, diversified, and highly efficient international logistics services.

Dimerco first entered the China market in 1991, and currently owns 7 professional licenses* as well as the "Class A Customs Bonded Warehouse" status issued by China Customs, China Inspection and Quarantine Service and Ministry of Transport of the People's Republic of China. Coupled with being connected to 3 major systems** this will allow Dimerco to work simultaneously with its customers to significantly shorten customs processing time. The end result being an enhancement of competitiveness relating to the provision of customer’s real-time tracing of their goods as well as zero errors via these systems. Furthermore, Dimerco has already completed installation of the Paperless Custom Clearance System software that will have to be carried out nation-wide by China's General Administrative of Customs (GAC) in 2015 by law.

The system will help reduce time consumed on data entry, eliminate errors during manual operation and simplify redundant procedures such as the scanning of documents. The end result is a significant rise in work efficiency and a greener solution regarding the environment.
In addition to being a “supervised warehouse” in Shanghai, Dimerco’s China-based company (Dimerco Zhongjing International Express Co. Ltd) received honor from the Shanghai Pudong customs on the 17th January, with a “4 Priority” grant. This allows the company to enjoy four convenient priorities regarding Customs Transfer, Cargo Release, Customs Inspection, and subject to conditions, Customs Release. This is due to begin in the first quarter of 2014, meaning even more positive news for their customers.
Target goal for sea freight to catch up with cargo business, confident times ahead!
Dimerco sees a positive outlook for the future and will continue to focus on areas such as North America and Europe to match the steady growth of Asia Pacific regions over the past 5 years. In the next 2 years, the company will develop its land service expansion in domestic China and integrate with the international freight service to offer the comprehensive and efficient service to the customer.
Following a recent reorganization which has allowed more manpower to be released Dimerco is taking additional bidding. Furthering from its strengths in cargo bids, it is turning to sea freight bids, where the company showed better performances over last year.
We have an overall 60% successful global biding record with a 10% increment per annum. Sea freight business is now approximately 28.5% in the company operations, and with the growth in bigger sea freight bidding focused this year, we anticipate over 30% within the next 3 years. Our ultimate goal is to have sea freight business reaching 50%, catching up with our fast growing cargo operations, making them both a core competency for Dimerco.
