Kerry Logistics crowned Global Freight Solutions Provider of the Year at Global Freight Awards in London

Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’ or the ‘Company’; Stock Code 636.HK) made its debut appearance at the 21st Lloyd’s Loading List Global Freight Awards (the ‘Awards’) in London, taking home the Global Freight Solutions Provider of the Year award.

Held at the Lancaster London Hotel on 16 November 2017, the award ceremony was attended by more than 500 guests from the global freight and logistics industry.

Organised annually by Lloyd’s Loading List, a freight publication of more than 160 years, the Awards recognise companies with innovative ideas and achievements and have set a benchmark for excellence in the global freight industry.

Kerry Logistics was honoured for its innovative multimodal solutions and successful development of an integral Eurasian overland transportation network between Europe and China with new LCL rail options, providing greater flexibility to its international customers.

Thomas Blank, Managing Director of Europe, Kerry Logistics, said, “We are excited to win the Global Freight Solutions Provider of the Year award. With the ambition to become a major logistics service provider for the new Silk Road, we are strategically expanding our network by sea, air, road and rail, devising new innovative solutions to offer our clients a competitive advantage. We are committed to offering a full range of upstream and downstream services to meet the demands of today’s shippers, from industrial freight, down to smaller e-commerce commodities.”

In June 2017, Kerry Logistics enhanced its services and network under the Belt and Road initiative by adding a new subsidiary, Globalink Logistics, under its umbrella. This move expanded its presence in nine countries across Central Asia which include Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine. While Kerry Logistics continues to develop an overland transportation network for road, rail and multimodal freight services from China to Central Asia and Europe, it will also build upon its expertise in project logistics within its global network to explore new business opportunities.
