Chinese shippers can now use Alibaba’s OneTouch platform to book space online on selected Maersk ships. According to a report published by Reuters today (4 January), the service is currently being offered on routes from eight Chinese ports, including Shanghai and Ningbo, to ports in Europe and Asia.
The new service became available on the OneTouch website on 22 December.
