Cosco Shipping established a special railway line for container transport from the port of Trieste to Gorenje industrial park in Velenje. «This new line is very important for improving the transport system for our factories in Velenje and for ensuring a stable supply chain – said Hisense Europe President Hanson Han -. As a global brand that is deeply rooted in the European market, Hisense has always set its main goal on providing high quality products and services to European customers. Localized R&D in Europe, as well as our production and sales have always been our long-term strategy to support this goal».
After Hisense acquired the Gorenje brand and its European factories in 2018, its products and services are deeply integrated with Gorenje products and services, which is lead to a further enhanced localization strategy. «We now transport products made here in Europe not only to European markets, but also to markets in Asia, America and other parts of the world, with the help of the Cosco Shipping network, thus meeting market demand and realizing our vision of development» – Hanson Han added.
Hisense manufactures its products from the segments of household appliances, consumer electronics, communications, information technology and others in 29 industrial parks in Asia, Europe, Africa and South America, and exports to more than 160 countries and regions around the world.
