We are as Chinese as we are Western
We are acutely aware of the fact that China has and will be good for us. This brings an obligation of social awareness and solidarity with China and its people.
Eurbridge donated a large sum to the victims of the Sichuan earthquake, while our personnel set up an action to assemble and donate clothing to those in need. We remain very conscious of our obligation that when China is good to us, we must return also to those in need.

The founders of Eurbridge over the years found that international trade between east and west has its own specific set of challenges.Having built up an accumulated expertise of more than 50 years, we have acquired an in-depth understanding of the workings of Chinese logistics, as well as “western style” shipping.
With our unique combination of skills and experience, the Eurbridge team is as much a facilitator than an executor of logistics trade. In China, the shipping industry is not easily accessible for outsiders, while the western shipping industry is much more open. This often creates misunderstandings and frustration. Eurbridge will offer correct and professional information to meet the requirements of east and west, while upholding high ethical standards.
