MINNETONKA, Minn.— Jan. 20, 2014 — Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, today announced the opening of its new Logistics Hub and Distribution Center located in Hong Kong, China.
The distribution center will better serve Datacard Group’s customers and partners throughout the region, as well as reduce the order-to-delivery times for desktop card printers, warranty spare and replacement parts, and supplies from five – 10 days to one – three days depending on location.
Through the establishment of the Distribution Center in Hong Kong, Datacard Group will be able to confirm orders and respond to shipment status inquiries within local working hours, without having to bridge the gap between time zones.
“Asia Pacific continues to be one of our most valued markets with tremendous growth opportunity for us, which is why we are focusing on strengthening our presence and providing more localized services in-region,” said Angus McDougall, regional vice president, Datacard Asia Pacific Ltd. “It’s very important that we give our customers and partners faster service. With shorter delivery times and lowered transportation costs, customers may be able to reduce their safety stock levels and place smaller orders more frequently.”
The new Hong Kong logistics hub will serve those located in China, Hong Kong, Korea and the ASEAN region. It is located at Crane Worldwide c/o Datacard Corporation, Unit 2, 3/F, Yuen Fat Godown, No. 1 Fat Tseung Street, Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
