Bomi Group, a leading Company in biomedical logistics and high-tech healthcare products listed on the AIM Italia multilateral trading system, announces the Group direct entry into the Asia Pacific market by the subscription of a joint venture agreement with a local partner, named Yang Kee Logistics Pte Ltd .

Yang Kee is a provider of integrated logistics solutions, including warehousing, distribution and transportation, freight forwarding and customs clearance, mainly in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Food sectors and strategically located in several areas of the APAC area such as Singapore (HQ), Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines and Malaysia.

The objective of the Joint Venture is to develop the typical Bomi Group activity in the APAC region by combining the multi-year experience in the Healthcare sector, the know-how and the IT solutions of the Group with Yang Kee’s excellent infrastructures, coverage and knowledge of the area.
