Kerry Logistics new air-sea solution cuts transport times

Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics Network’, ‘KLN’; Stock Code 0636.HK) has launched a new air-sea solution between Europe and Oceania, which is faster than sea freight and cheaper than airfreight on the same lanes.

The new product, which connects eight European countries with destinations in Australia and New Zealand, is 50 percent cheaper than airfreight and three times faster than sea freight on the same lanes.

“We have been looking for innovative ways to help customers facing issues due to the situation in Red Sea, which has dramatically increased sea freight transit times to somewhere in excess of 60 days between Europe and Oceania,” said Emma Rowlands, Strategic Sales Director Europe, Kerry Logistics.

“Our air-sea service provides a cost-effective solution and we have already serviced several key accounts resulting in transit times that have been even better than expected, with shipments arriving in Australia from Europe in fewer than 20 days.”

Kerry Logistics is offering daily uplifts from airports in the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, and Turkey, to Australia and New Zealand with a 20–24 day transit time.
