Founder's words

The start-up of Smart Turn was a result of inspiration from Chairman Xi’s national strategy of rebuilding “Old Silk Road” and the ASEAN collaborative alliance “Belt and Road” in 2014. Leveraging on my 20-year business experience in South East Asia, we have built a network of logistics alliance covering 7 countries in 2015/6.

 

We have worked closely with SF Express to explore opportunities in Indonesia and acted as an agent for some other markets covering South Asia. Our courier tonnage reached a monthly 10+ tons in a nutshell. The land-haul leverage with Sinotrans ensured cross-border parcels from China, efficiently passed through Vietnam, arriving Cambodia and Thailand. We were one of the pioneers to manage cross-border logistics.

 

Smart Turn has then expanded a rapid growth in those days and we were honoured to be awarded in The Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Entrepreneurship Competition 2017. 

 

In 2018, we were brought-out and has completed the phase 1 corporate development. Following China national strategy is our firm belief that a SME should adopt, we can’t stand the market competition without innovative, prospective and creative mindset– this form the backbone strategy of Smart Turn. China implemented environmentally-strict measures onto recycling enterprises expelling many of recycle plastics manufacturers into ASEAN countries. This has triggered our 2nd phase of corporate development into supply chain management of recycled resin market. The one-stop-shop supply chain solution provides a risk-free and hassle-free logistics operation to plastics importers in China.

 

We have witnessed another wave of rapid growth from 2019 to 2021. The COVID pandemic has slowed down our step but it did not erase our SME out of the market. We are positively progressing into

2023 – music is sounding and we are moving ahead on our path.
