Roslyn, New York, April 27, 2020 – Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd.

He will report directly to CEO Lei Cao.


Mr. Wu was previously the founder and primary shareholder of Mandarine Ocean Ltd, (“Mandarine Ocean”), a Shanghai, China based shipping company registered in the Marshall Islands. Sino-Global recently signed a share purchase agreement in which the Company acquired a 75% majority position in Mandarine Ocean. Mr. Wu has extensive experience in the ocean freight services business, having served as one of the upstream clients of Sino-Global’s light-asset shipping logistic services.


Prior to founding Mardarine Ocean, Mr. Wu, 45, served as General Manager of Shanghai Vasteast Int’l, a ship owner and operator. Mr. Wu graduated from Shanghai Maritime University and holds a Masters degree in maritime law.


With the addition of Mr.Wu, Sino-Global expects to leverage its light-asset shipping service business while expanding further upstream toward the customer in the shipping logistics value chain.


Mr. Lei Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global, stated, “We are very pleased that Kelin has agreed to join the Company’s senior management team as Chief Marketing Officer. He is a dynamic and deeply experienced executive whose leadership, insights, market expertise and creative approach will be invaluable as we move into this next stage of development for Sino-Global. Throughout our discussions surrounding the share purchase agreement with Mandarine Ocean, we were impressed by Kelin’s knowledge of the entire logistics and shipping freight market. All of us agreed that Sino-Global would benefit from a dedicated marketing executive that could help to elevate our brand recognition and status as an exceptional provider of logistics solutions throughout the globe.”


Mr. Wu stated, “I am very excited to join Sino-Global at a time where having a strong, recognizable presence in the global logistics market is critical to success. As China begins to move on from the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope to work together to establish the Company as a clear leader in the transportation and logistics industry.”
