Kerry Logistics opens new office in Peru

[ August 4, 2021   //   ]

Kerry Logistics Network Limited is extending its coverage in Latin America by opening an office in Lima, Peru, increasing the number of countries and territories in its global network to 60. Having commenced operations in July 2021, Kerry Logistics Peru S.A.C. (‘Kerry Logistics Peru’) extends Kerry Logistics Network’s presence in Latin America, boosting its international freight forwarding capability and tapping into the Peruvian export trade.

Kerry Logistics Peru offers a range of supply chain solutions from air and ocean freight to customs clearance and domestic transportation across the country. Its target markets include the mining industry, apparel, automotive, high-tech, as well as pharmaceutical. For the mining industry, which constitutes Peru’s principal source of economic growth as the world’s second largest producer of copper, silver, and zinc, the Peru team will provide dedicated air and ocean freight for import and export as well as transporting of mining equipment and component parts. The Lima office is also well-placed to provide export services to Peruvian apparel manufacturers for the distribution of high-quality cotton products to international brands and fine alpaca garments to the world. In addition, the team provides industrial project logistics solutions to the oil & gas, renewables, power & energy sectors.

William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “The opening of the new Peru office marks a significant move for Kerry Logistics Network to expand its service network in the Latin American market. Leveraging the extensive connectivity of KLN’s global sea and air coverage, we are well-positioned to capitalise on the trade between Peru and China, which is currently Peru’s biggest export trader. Our strengthened foothold in the Americas, including the connections from Huntsville, Alabama, and Miami, Florida in the US to Latin America, will facilitate intercontinental transportation of goods in the wake of massive disruptions to the global supply chains.”

Kerry Logistics Network has vast experience in the Latin American market with wide airport and port coverage, bonded warehousing capacity and domestic door-to-door delivery solutions.
