Kerry Logistics launches Trans-Pacific air freight service to connect multiple Asian locations to US
Kerry Logistics Network Limited is introducing a new Trans-Pacific air freight service to connect multiple Asian locations to the USA to capture the heightened demands in the pandemic-hit air freight market.
Named Kerry Freight Controlled Network (‘KCN’), the freight integrator centers on the Americas hub set up in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. The inaugural flights will originate from Hong Kong in August 2021.
KCN is a time-definite solution that offers standard air freight services to customers with guaranteed space and long-term pricing, fulfilling the needs of customers looking for stable and long-term solutions.
KCN leads the market in heavy air freight integrators with door-to-door solutions for a wide range of products: from small parcels to large and oversized cargoes, including DGR and lithium batteries.
KLN is partnering with the Huntsville International Airport in the State of Alabama, USA, to establish a hub at the airport, operating inbound and outbound air cargo flights as well as trucking connections to provide seamless transportation of goods across the Americas. KLN will operate multiple aircraft on a weekly basis from select origins in Asia.
Kevin Bulger, chief operating officer of USA, Kerry Logistics Network, said: “We chose Huntsville as our Americas air freight hub for KCN as it is congestion free and enjoys expedited transfer of cargo to Latin America and Mexico. With cooperation from HSV, we will be able to execute swift dispatch of cargoes to cities within the USA and Canada. KCN will be a welcomed service in the increasingly tight air cargo market and meet the demands of customers looking for a lasting and reliable solution to their air freight needs”.
