Best logistics for quality beverages
There are many facts about wine, one of which is that it is of great importance for a trader to offer their customers superior quality wines from distant wine producing regions to a global wine hub with effective distribution.
Thanks to its prime geographical location, sound legal and financial system, Hong Kong serves as an important gateway to wine markets in the region. Moreover, since the elimination of import duty for wines in 2008 by the Hong Kong Government, Hong Kong has become a major global hub for wine storage and distribution in Asia. As a result, worldwide wine imports into Hong Kong have been surging ever since.
Hong Kong’s prominence as a buying hub allows oversea exporters to access China and other Asian markets while remaining protected by the sanctity of Hong Kong. Trade statistics also indicated that wine imports would be for both local consumption and re-exporting to China and other Asian countries, such as Japan and Korea.
