China has pledged to support Hong Kong’s development of high-value goods inventory management and Regional Distribution Centres (RDCs).
In view of this, the Hong Kong Government appointed BMT to carry out a study to identify Hong Kong’s competitive position in this service area.
Examining Hong Kong’s strengths and weaknesses as an RDC against regional contenders, the study commanded a large response base from credible sources within a limited timeframe.
This was made possible through BMT’s wide network and reputation.
Market observations, reinforced by the study’s statistical results, formed the basis of the strategic measures delivered by BMT that Hong Kong should take in maintaining a sustainable distribution sector.
The Hong Kong Trade Development Council commissioned BMT, working together with the Li & Fung Institute of Supply Chain Management and Logistics (Chinese University of Hong Kong) to carry out a Consultancy Study on the competitiveness of Hong Kong as a Regional Distribution Centre.
SkyPier at Hong Kong International Airport provides speedy ferry service for transfer passengers. BMT was responsible for the ferry pontoons that act as the principal interface for passengers and baggage.
With improved port capacity and quality available at Shenzhen and other Pearl River Delta ports, as well as the increasing competitiveness of supporting services such as ship management, ship finance and maritime arbitration in Shanghai and Singapore, Hong Kong will need to improve and evolve port and maritime services to increase market share in future years.
BMT was engaged in the development of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, addressing a number of design requirements and marine traffic issues during the construction of the bridge.
