In addition, the recent acquisition will open new opportunities in several business fields. Within our new organization the most remarkable new service is the capability to offer 4PL Logistics”.

Imperial Logistics Switzerland GMBH will soon make available the changes in their contact details. Moreover, all old open files (opened until 31st October) will be handled by Imperial Logistics until 23rd of February. The staff of their company will also remain more or less the same.

“Initially we were taken over by DP World. However, DP world decided to move our European Headquarter to London and close down the Zurich office. As we wanted to keep our Zurich office, we decided to move to Central Station AG, that has been a highly valued partner for years. We came to this decision after short and intense negotiations”, adds Mr. Muffler.

Congratulations to Imperial Logistics Switzerland and all the best for their upcoming projects!

In the words of Devin Gunarathne, the Director of Cargo Overseas Freight, “Our company had a humble beginning with a small staff and big expectations. Since then, we have grown our staff as well as opened a new Airport office near the CMB airport to coordinate and handle our air imports/exports with a very close eye. As the director of the company, I personally feel we have taken steps to improve ourselves individually and collectively as a company to add value and give the utmost service to our customers.”

One of their spectacular achievements in the last 5 years is their increasing turnover and the improvements in their customer service. In the last financial year, they achieved an annual turnover of 2,300,000 USD. This turnover was the highest in the company’s history which was averaging a 192,000 USD monthly gross income as well.

“The most significant objective that we wanted to achieve was raising our turnover and uplifting our customer service within our business which we have achieved significantly by implementing new facilities and expanding our competitive advantages to execute new business ventures. The biggest challenge we were facing was the aftermath of the pandemic but now we are confronting a new challenge which is the economic crisis which our country is facing and the Forex exchange due to the depreciation of LKR. Nevertheless, I am confident that our team will successfully overcome these challenges. For the efforts and risks we have taken, rewards have been given and for that, I am significantly proud.”

Congratulations to Cargo Overseas Freight on their 5th Anniversary and the very best for their future endeavours!

CMIC Anda Shun- freight forwarding company
CIMC Andashun International Logistics

Q. When and why did you choose a career in the freight forwarding industry?


A. Ever since I was in college, I have been very interested in international transportation and trade. For this reason, I decided to work with a logistics company. I joined CIMC Andashun because it has an enthusiastic team and provides a good platform for the employees. I have been working with them for 6 years already and I plan to keep working here for many more years to come.

Q. Today you are celebrating the 16th anniversary of your company. Congratulations! What does this anniversary mean for your team?


A. This is absolutely a very special day for us and we are delighted to share this joy with all the members. For the last 16 years, our company has focused on 4 primary pillars- integrity, innovation, pragmatism and efficiency. Providing unparalleled logistics services regardless of the circumstances every day for the last 16 years has been quite a feat! No matter the situation, the one thing which we never did was give up.

On the occasion of our 16th anniversary, we want to thank all our partners and customers for the years of support to CIMC Anda Shun, which inspires us to continue fulfilling our mission as a leading logistics company.

By celebrating this 16th anniversary, we are also celebrating the success of the entire team. This is a very special day which is like a reservoir of energy for the coming days so that our victory does not stop but goes on for years. I am confident that many more anniversaries, success stories and achievements will come our way!

Q. How were the beginnings of your company?

A. Our company was founded on 7th July 2006 by our CEO Mr Gerry Yang who has many years of industry experience since he was working with Air China before. Since then we never looked back and started to grow our operations and significantly expand our team. With over 500 employees, our company is becoming stronger by the day.

Q. How did CIMC change in all these years?

A. Internally, CIMC Andashun has been led by an excellent management team that guides us whenever there is any potential challenge. We are also assisted by an active sales team and an operation team, that makes our internal atmosphere innovative and open . Externally, our team has been actively keeping close contact with airlines, shipping lines and network partners for all these years. We have been committed to the goal of becoming a leading international logistics company.

Q. What are the biggest challenges you have faced during these 16 years?

A. As a logistics company, we meet the challenges everyday because the market is not so stable and competition was always there from the very  beginning. Although it is hard to indicate what is the biggest challenges so far, still we have to admit that the COVID-19 had a specially unpredictable impact on every company. Luckily, we did a good job so far, and we are ready to face the upcoming challenges.

The services that we can offer are diverse and professional, we can do what many other logistics company can’t do, and we value every shipment no matter if it is big or small.

Q. What have you achieved along these years?

A. We have received hundreds of honours, cups, awards and certificates over the years. Last year, we ranked 12 in terms of China’s International Freight Forwarding & Logistics Airport Business Incomes and in 2020 we ranked as one of the top 20 companies in the Chinese private freight forwarding and logistics business.

Q. What has been the most significant shipment your team has handled?

A. CIMC Andashun makes a yearly summary at the end of each year. However, it’s hard to tell which one is the most significant shipment we have handled as all partner/customers are equally important for us. Apart from handling projects for international companies such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Gree, Walmart, ZTE etc, we also handle server transportation, sea freight, rail freight, intermodal transportation in the China-South America route and elsewhere, etc. The services that we can offer are diverse and professional, we can do what many other logistics company can’t do, and we value every shipment no matter if it is big or small. Maybe the most significant shipment always lies in the near future.

Q. What distinguishes CIMC from other freight forwarders?

A. CIMC Andashun always pays a lot of attention to the market trends and the expectations of our partners and customers. We can flexibly adjust the transportation strategy in time according to the market conditions in order to provide the best solutions for our clients and partners.

Q. Where do you see CIMC in the next 16 years?

A. In the last 16 years CIMC Andashun has grown up from an infant to a youth. People in their youth always have unlimited possibilities and so has our company.

On its way to the next 16 years, CIMC Andashun will certainly experience more setbacks and challenges, but also it will overcome those challenges and make many more achievements. We believe that CIMC Andashun will be more brilliant and powerful on the international stage 16 years from now.
