UK digital freight forwarder Beacon continues rapid expansion with Hong Kong office opening

London-based Beacon, the next generation freight forwarding and supply chain finance company, has continued its rapid growth trajectory by doubling the size of its team, increasing its customer base and expanding its physical presence into Asia by opening a new office in Hong Kong. Since March, Beacon’s headcount has increased from 35 to 75, while also achieving a ratio of 40% women employees, in line with the company’s key objective of fostering gender diversity and inclusivity in the workplace.

With business performance up by 300% in the last quarter alone, opening an office in Asia is the logical next step for the company to support this growing customer base and global footprint. James Yu, previously Logistics Program Manager at Uber in Hong Kong, has been appointed as Ocean Procurement Lead, HK, based in the new Hong Kong office.
