UPDATE: Sino-Global Announces Global Logistic Service Agreement
Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SINO), a leading, non-state-owned provider of shipping agency services operating primarily in China, today announced that it signed a 5-year global logistic service agreement on June 27, 2013 with TEWOO Chemical & Light Industry Zhiyuan Trade Co., Ltd and TianJin Zhi Yuan Investment Group Co., Ltd (together "Zhiyuan").
Under the terms of the agreement, Sino-Global will serve as Zhiyuan's exclusive global logistics service provider in charge of cargo import and export issues. Sino-Global will provide door-to-door chartering, agency and logistics services for Zhiyuan, taking care of everything from assistance with sales contracts, logistics planning, local agent and surveyor appointments, customs compliance, and arrangement of warehousing and land transportation for shipments. Zhiyuan will prepay 40% of total freight prior to a shipment. The agreement, which was unanimously approved by Sino-Global's Board of Directors, will last for 5 years, at which point Sino-Global has the right to renew for successive one-year terms.
Mr. Cao Lei, Sino-Global's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "When we asked our shareholders to approve the issuance of shares of common stock to Mr. Zhang Zhong, we were excited not only about the cash sale of our common stock to an investor eager to share in our company's future, but also about the long-term opportunity to serve the shipping needs of Mr. Zhang's companies. We believe this exclusive arrangement offers an important new revenue stream to our company and offers economic upside to both Zhiyuan and our company."
