Kerry Logistics has continued its European expansion with the purchase of German firm Multi Logistics.
The acquisition will add four offices and additional logistics expertise in Germany for Kerry Logistics. This will expand its presence in the country to seven offices, including its regional headquarters in Frankfurt as well as Bremen, Hamburg, Munich and Berlin.
Each offers local and multinational customers international freight forwarding (including ocean, air and road); warehouse and distribution, Customs brokerage and supply chain solutions.
“We have had offices for integrated logistics and international freight forwarding in the country for many years, offering customers total supply chain solutions from origin to destination,” said Thomas Blank, managing director of Europe, Kerry Logistics.
“The expansion is in line with our strategy to accelerate the business development of the European market, and we are pleased to be able to provide our clients with enhanced network coverage, additional service offerings across Europe, and a further optimised local customer service in Germany,” he said.
The move comes three weeks after Kerry Logistics’ expansion in Spain with the takeover of the freight forwarding businesses of Bofill & Arnan, S.A., a logistics and freight forwarding company with a focus on the China, Taiwan, and India trade lanes.
