NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Sino-Global Shipping America (SINO - Get Report) were soaring 19.94% to $1.68 on heavy trading volume mid-morning Wednesday after the Roslyn, NY-based shipping management company announced it would be developing a new mobile application, according to a company statement.
The application will provide a full-service logistics platform between the U.S. and China for short-haul trucking in the U.S, which typically involves driving within a 150-mile radius.
The company hopes its logistics application will better manage the more than 25 million containers moving between China and the U.S. each year.
"We believe that Sino-Global is in the right position to solve bottleneck issues in this traditional industry with mobile application technology," CEO Lei Cao said in a statement.
Sino-Global is currently evaluating technology and potential business partners and plans to launch the app in 2017.
More than 3.43 million shares have traded so far on Wednesday vs. the 30-day average of 1.24 million shares.
