Kerry Logistics Network is deepening its presence in the Middle East by setting up a new office in Bahrain and opening a new bonded logistics facility in Dubai, in order to extend its footprint and enhance its service capabilities as growth in the region gains momentum.
In Bahrain, the new office focuses on serving the automotive, oil and gas, fashion and lifestyle and electronics and technology verticals with air, ocean and road freight, customs clearance and warehousing services. It marks a significant step for Kerry Logistics to strengthen its foothold in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, the Hong Kong-based logistics company says.
In Dubai, the new logistics facility commenced operation in December 2019 as a part of Kerry Logistics’ expansion plans in the Middle East.
Located three kilometres from Dubai Al Maktoum International Airport and 20 minutes from Jebel Ali Port, the bonded facility has a total area of 6,500 sqm, offering solutions to electronics & technology customers and e-commerce fulfilment services.
Mathieu Biron, managing director – Global Freight Forwarding of Kerry Logistics, says: “Our new office in Bahrain and the logistics facility in Dubai are substantially boosting Kerry Logistics’ capabilities in serving customers in the Middle East. We foresee that Kerry Logistics will continue with further expansion in the GCC region.”
Since 2014, Kerry Logistics has been providing cost-efficient multimodal solutions covering air, ocean and road freight, as well as warehousing services to domestic and international customers in the Middle East.
