Kerry Logistics Network is ramping up its Kerry Freight Controlled Network (KCN) with four charter flights a week from Hong Kong to Huntsville, Alabama in the US.
Weekly direct flights depart from Hong Kong (HKG) to Huntsville (HSV) on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and are supported with B2B, B2C and B2B2C door-to-door services to different cities in the Americas, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Bogota, Mexico City, Santiago, Lima, and Montevideo.
The service can handle “pure battery”, in addition to other sensitive cargoes such as pharmaceuticals, perishable and dangerous goods.
Mathieu Renard Biron, managing director – global freight forwarding of Kerry Logistics Network, said: “Our HKG-HSV charter service is welcomed by a wide range of customers, in particular electronic brands and e-tailers since its inaugural flight in April 2022.
“Last month, we successfully expanded our KCN to include three weekly flights from Hanoi, Vietnam to Huntsville. We are also in dialogue with some of our key accounts to further extend our services to the Mainland of China and other parts of Asia.”
He added: “Backed by KLN’s long-term partnership with best-in-class carriers, extensive coverage of major air transit hubs and strong in-house customs clearance capabilities, KCN is expected to meet the recurring demand for secured air freight services in an uncertain world.”
Launched in August 2021, KCN is designed to offer standard airfreight services to customers with guaranteed space and long-term pricing.
