Asian Tigers Korea helps foreigners’ integration

The nation’s relocation business goes back to the 1950s when Korea began to have active interaction with other countries. Civilians, soldiers and diplomats began their entry into Korea, making a significant development in the moving industry.

That is when Joseph Song, CEO of Asian Tigers Korea, caught the trend and decided to jump into the industry.

Asian Tigers Korea was founded in 1984 to provide services to foreigners who need to settle in the country but are unfamiliar with the local system and culture.

In addition to its own storage warehouse and cargo trucks, the firm also provides customized relocation services that help foreigners integrate into society, such as school information, hospital facilities, bank account setup, house searching and shopping for daily goods.

For its clients, company officials said they signed an MOU with Korea Exchange Bank last year that gives customers the benefit of a 10 to 50 percent discount on the bank’s selected services.

Despite the financial crisis in the late 1990s and drop in immigrants, the company said it has managed to keep its service at a quality level at a reasonable price, while acting as a small bridge between Korea and the rest of the world.
