Kerry Logistics targets mining sector with Peru office

Kerry Logistics Network is opening a new office in Lima, Peru as it expands in the Latin America region.

The office will offer air and ocean freight services, customs clearance and domestic transportation across the country.

Its target markets include the mining industry, apparel, automotive, high-tech, as well as pharmaceutical.

The mining industry 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 part,” the company said.

Adding: “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 and gas, renewables, power & energy sectors.”

William Ma, group managing director of Kerry Logistics Network, said: “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.”

The new office increases the number of countries and territories in Kerry’s network to 60.
