Kerry Logistics Network has formed a subsidiary in Pakistan in order to extend its footprint in the region and tap into the increasing trade in South Asia.
The subsidiary will also capitalise on the business opportunities along the China-Pakistan economic corridor (CPEC) – a collection of infrastructure projects currently under construction in Pakistan.
The subsidiary - Kerry Freight Pakistan - will provide air and ocean freight, cross-border road freight to Afghanistan and China, as well as project logistics and inland trucking services through its offices in Karachi and Lahore.
Robert Tan, managing director - South and Southeast Asia at Kerry Logistics, said: “Kerry Logistics is committed to developing an overland transportation network for road, rail and intermodal freight services in Asia.
“Riding on the immense opportunities brought on by the establishment of the CPEC, we will leverage our extensive international freight forwarding network and expertise in rail and road freight to provide end-to-end and cost-effective multimodal solutions for customers across the region.”
