DHL and UTLC Establish Strategic China-Europe rail Partnership

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL, is to form a new strategic partnership to develop rail forwarding services on the China-Europe route with United Transport and Logistics Company (UTLC). UTLC, which is expected to be established later in 2014, is a joint-venture partnership between OJSC Russian Railways, JSC National Company Kazakhstan Temir Zholy and State enterprise Belarusian Railway. UTLC will operate as an integrated provider of logistics and container rail transportation services between Europe and China. DHL Global Forwarding signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in Moscow in March with the ‘Project office of UTLC’ (PO UTLC) ahead of the official incorporation of UTLC.
Steve Huang, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding China, who signed the MOU, said: “The potential for rail freight growth between Asia and Europe is huge but to grow it successfully requires high-level strategic partnerships such as the one we’ve established between DHL Global Forwarding and UTLC. To encourage clients to enjoy the benefits of rail on these routes, we need services that are frequent, fast and reliable in terms of both delivery times and pricing. Our partnership leverages both groups’ strengths to accelerate the development of rail forwarding services on the China-Europe-China route with UTLC providing all rail services in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and DHL providing third party logistics and door-to-door delivery. For our customers, it will mean a one-stop, one price service.”
The DHL-UTLC partnership is committed to developing rail forwarding services between China and Europe by providing regular services to customers with a container delivery time of three weeks door-to-door.
Zhanar Rymzhanova, CEO, PO UTLC, who co-signed the MOU on behalf of three railways, said: “One of the project goals is to promote best client-oriented services. UTLC will be responsible for operating station-to-station rail service, including procurement of the rolling stock, and all related services on the route as well as pricing. UTLC transit product will be based on guaranteed train schedule. With weekly departures, there’s a great opportunity for development of transit potential of wide gauge track countries with cargo originating in China and Europe.”
The MOU augments DHL Global Forwarding’s growing Asia-Europe rail solutions. DHL Global Forwarding runs a daily service — departing, for example, from Shanghai, Tianjin or Qingdao and running along the trans-Siberian North corridor to Europe — with a slightly longer transit time compared to the West corridor, and a weekly China-Europe rail service launched last year along China’s West corridor using the Chengdu Express Train, dubbed the fastest rail connection between China and Europe. The block train starts in Chengdu, China and runs along China’s West corridor to DHL’s intermodal hub in Małaszewicze and Lodz, Poland.
In January, DHL Global Forwarding introduced the first temperature-controlled China-Europe rail service. Powered by a diesel-electric engine, DHL containers allow internal temperatures to be controlled, tracked and remotely modified. This provides an all-year round multi-modal shipping solution for temperature sensitive products, historically unable to use the fast and cost-effective trans-continental West rail corridor during the harsh winter and hot summer months.
DHL Global Forwarding provides a one-stop shop service in air and ocean freight, domestic transportation, multimodal transportation, project and charting and logistics management services through modularized service offerings and extensive network coverage.
DHL — The Logistics company for the world
DHL is the global market leader in the logistics industry and “The Logistics company for the world”. DHL commits its expertise in international express, air and ocean freight, road and rail transportation, contract logistics and international mail services to its customers. A global network composed of more than 220 countries and territories and about 285,000 employees worldwide offers customers superior service quality and local knowledge to satisfy their supply chain requirements. DHL accepts its social responsibility by supporting environmental protection, disaster management and education.
DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL. The Group generated revenue of more than 55 billion euros in 2013.
JSC Russian Railways is one of the largest transport networks in the world with working mileage of 85 thousand kilometers. The Group accounts for nearly 44% of Russia’s cargo turnover, including pipelines, and for more than 30% of the country’s passenger turnover.
JSC “NC “Kazakhstan Temir Zholy” owns the rail network of Kazakhstan. The company accounts for approximately 50% of the total cargo turnover of the country, including a significant part of its exports and carries approximately 20 million passengers annually.
The Belarusian Railway operates the national rail network of the Republic of Belarus. The company’s cargo turnover makes up more than 75% of the total turnover of all public transport and accounts for approximately 40% of the country’s passenger turnover.

Newgen to Enable Banks in Philippines to Become FATCA Ready

leave a comment »

MANILA, Philippines, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —

Organises Seminar for banks to help meet FATCA * compliance

Newgen Software, a leading global provider of Business Process Management (BPM), Enterprise Content Management (ECM), and Customer Communication Management (CCM) solutions, is organizing a seminar on ‘Creating a Blueprint for FATCA Success’ in Makati, Philippines, on 3 April 2014.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130912/638839 )

In this seminar Newgen FATCA Center of Excellence (CoE) will elaborate on creating the right strategy and leveraging IT infrastructure for FATCA readiness and compliance. The Seminar will be addressed by Ms Rossana S Javier, Consulting Managing Partner PwC, Philippines. Selected participants will also have an opportunity to hold one-to-one discussions with Newgen CoE Team and PwC FATCA experts.

Speaking about the seminar, Mr Diwakar Nigam, Managing Director, Newgen Software, said: “Newgen FATCA solutions are an intelligent combination of our deep rooted understanding of the act, how it impacts Financial Institutions and our robust BPM and Case Management platform. This seminar will elaborate Newgen’s ability to build smart and flexible FATCA processes for banks. We will showcase how Newgen Case Management approach scores over leveraging usual AML (Anti Money Laundering) applications for FATCA compliance.”

Ms Rossana S Javier commented: “FATCA rules have been looming for a while and banks are aware that ultimately they will have to be compliant. There’s a general ‘wait and see’ attitude among the local banks on how FATCA will impact their operations. As in any other implementation, the sooner the bank gets its arms around the project, the higher the probability of successful implementation. Software solutions offer an option to facilitate compliance with FATCA rules. In the end, it is the bank’s willingness to meet the challenges of FATCA head on earlier rather than later.”

The seminar will be attended by business and compliance leaders from all major Banks in the Philippines. It will consolidate Newgen’s FATCA initiatives in the region. Newgen currently is already implementing FATCA solutions for two large Banks in the Caribbean Island.
