(December 12, 2023) – Dimerco Express Group, a major service provider in global third-party logistics (3PL), has appointed Jeffrey Shih as the group’s CEO.
Shih’s 35 years of logistics industry experience include leadership roles in both corporate logistics and 3PL operations, primarily with Dimerco. He brings a deep understanding of the customers, as well as a track record of success running Dimerco’s operations in Southeast Asia and, most recently, North America. Shih now oversees Dimerco’s three business divisions: air freight, ocean freight and contract logistics.
According to Dimerco’s newly appointed CEO, competing in today’s turbulent markets requires precision-operated supply chains, and partnering with the right global 3PL can be a crucial competitive advantage.
“My focus, first and foremost, will be taking care of the customer and providing the high level of logistics management service they expect,” says Shih. “Looking ahead, Dimerco will continue its global expansion efforts, particularly in the U.S. market. And we’ll continue to be a major logistics service provider in supply chain digitalization through the use of robotic process automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence (AI) – driving toward elimination of traditional, paper-based work processes that remain all too common in global freight management.”
According to Dimerco Founder and Chairman Paul Chien, “Jeffrey Shih’s visionary leadership and deep industry knowledge are exactly what Dimerco needs at this pivotal moment. Companies are hungry for a professional 3PL that can efficiently connect their markets and production hubs in Asia with the rest of the world. That’s been Dimerco’s mission for the last 52 years, and Jeffrey Shih is well qualified to improve and expand on that mission.”
Dimerco Express Group integrates air and ocean freight, trade compliance and contract logistics services to make global supply chains more effective and efficient. The majority of the company’s global logistics projects connect Asia’s logistics and manufacturing hubs with each other, and with North America and Europe. Started from an air freight forwarder in Taiwan in 1971, Dimerco now serves customers from 150+ Dimerco offices, 80 contract logistics operations, and 200+ strategic partner agents throughout China, India, Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe.
