We will continue building sustainable logistics infrastructure and contributing to society through our business both in China and globally.”

SMU expressed its high regard for the NX Group’s sustainability management as well as its desire to further strengthen its partnership and exchanges with the NX Group through such programs as an endowed lecture series.
