ASUS picks Dentressangle for air forwarding


Norbert Dentressangle’s fast-growing freight forwarding division has secured a major contract renewal with ASUS, a leading vendor of tablet and notebook computers and the world’s No. 1 manufacturer of computer motherboards.

Employing more than 12,500 people worldwide, ASUS is a US$14 billion enterprise which designs and manufactures a wide range of technology products including graphics cards, optical drives, displays, desktop and all-in-one PCs, notebooks, netbooks, servers, multimedia devices, wireless solutions, networking devices, tablets and smartphones. One in three computers houses an ASUS motherboard.

ASUS appointed Norbert Dentressangle’s US freight forwarding business in 2011, to manage the ocean freight of product from four production facilities in China to the US, and the onward distribution of products to ASUS’ US customers, which include Best Buy, OfficeMax, Staples and Sears. Up to 25 containers of finished product are shipped each week.

Due to the success of the ocean freight operation, ASUS has since extended the partnership with Norbert Dentressangle to include the management of air freight out of its manufacturing plant in Chongqing. Under the new contract, Norbert Dentressangle’s US freight forwarding business will handle all air and ocean computer products from more than 20 factories in mainland China, managed by a dedicated team of 20 colleagues in the US and China.
