In July 2013, KLF acquired a 60 per cent stake in Foshan Sanshui Port Development Co., Ltd in Foshan City, Guangdong Province.
The 22.7-ha Sanshui Port has been operating since 2000, and is strategically located near major railway cargo hubs and highways, making it an effective port of call for not only Guangdong, but also trading hubs in nearby Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Nansha.
The move not only expands KLF's presence in Southern China, but also enables it to meet previously untapped demand in this rapidly developing province, and to synergise operations in the country.
Coupled with Sanshui's estimated annual handling capacity of 300,000 TEU, KLF is well-placed to meet the demands for better and higher-value logistics solutions in the vicinity.
