The logistics industry in Hong Kong

    Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    The logistics industry in Hong Kong comprises air transportation, sea transportation, traditional freight forwarding, as well as the emerging 3PL industry. We first provide overviews of the air and the sea transportation industries. These industries perform the major logistics functions that have transformed Hong Kong into a transportation hub for Asia. The 3PL industry, which is the sub-set of the entire logistics industry, is relatively under-developed in Hong Kong. It will thus be our major area of investigation.
