BEIJING, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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
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."
