Winland Online Shipping Reports 2009 Results

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 26, 2010) - Winland Online Shipping Holdings Corporation (OTCBB: WLOL), a global shipping company which also owns and operates China's largest shipping website portal "Shipping Online" (www.sol.com.cn), announced today that the Company's revenues continued to be affected in 2009 by the global economic slowdown and the depressed global shipping market.

The Company reported revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009 decreased 40.4% to $50,178,721 compared with $84,206,001 in 2008. Net income in 2009 decreased to a loss of $(6,958,956) compared with net income of $19,071,337 in 2008.

While continuing to feel the effects of the downturn in the global economy, as reflected in the 57% year over year decrease in the Baltic Dry Index, during the year the Company continued to look to expand its online portal and overall shipping capabilities.

Ms. Xue Ying, CEO of the Company, commented, "Although 2009 was a difficult year, we're pleased we were able to complete the purchase of a new vessel to increase our capacity, and that we continued to diversify our business. Of note, 'other activities,' which include shipping agency, freight forwarding and online services contributed 9% of consolidated operating revenue in 2009 as opposed to 6% in 2008. As sales continued to increase in our online services, our vessel operating and service costs were down 16.7% and 33.5% respectively, compared to 2008."
