Kerry Logistics Network has announced its coverage extension 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 extends Kerry Logistics Network’s presence in Latin America, boosting its international freight forwarding capability and tapping into the Peruvian export trade, according to the announcement.

“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,” highlighted William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network.

Kerry Logistics said its Peru branch 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.

The Hong Kong-based logistics company said its 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.

“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,” commented William Ma. “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.”
