KERRY LOGISTICS OPENS UP MONGOLIA TO U.S. BUSINESSES
Kerry Logistics is a global logistics services provider with an extensive presence in the USA. In 2019, the firm was ranked the third-largest NVOCC (Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier) in terms of Trans-Pacific trade, handling more than 425,000 TEUs.
In December 2020, it announced a new series of multimodal transport solutions to Mongolia, designed to offer an alternate route to a market with untapped potential.
Specifically, the latest offerings cover road-rail and sea-rail freight for dry and temperature-controlled cargoes between North America, Europe, and landlocked Mongolia via the Freeport of Riga, Latvia.
William Ma, group managing director of Kerry Logistics Network, commented: “The new services greatly enhance the freight cost-efficiency and variety of solutions to Mongolia for our customers. To access the landlocked Mongolia, our strong rail freight capability in Central and East Asia gives us an invaluable advantage.”
Kerry Logistics has a firm foothold in the U.S. from which it can help exporters to reach the Mongolian market. For example, it operates more than half a million square feet of warehouses in Southern California, Northern California, and Florida, facilities that employ more than 290 staff members.
As well as opening opportunities in previously difficult to reach Mongolia, Kerry Logistics provides global coverage with offices in Canada, Mexico, India, the Middle East, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia.
