Last year Kerry Logistics acquired two Freight Forwarding Companies in the UK. Kerry Logistics Network Limited, a Hong-Kong based provider of freight and logistics services, has acquired Bergen Freight Forwarding Limited, a UK-based sea freight forwarding company. Bergen Freight Forwarding Limited is a freight forwarding company specializing in sea freight imports from India. Ocean freight from India is expected to increase significantly so the freight forwarding companies involved in this activity grow their business often by buying smaller sized companies active in this area.
The acquisition will help to strengthen Kerry Logistics' freight forwarding capabilities in the UK and Europe. Bergen will also strengthen Kerry Logistics’ network in the UK and across Europe as well as extend its reach into the UK’s major manufacturing regions in the North of England. Kerry Logistics Network Limited is a Hong-Kong based logistics company that provides a range of logistics services including freight forwarding, express parcel delivery, contract logistics, warehousing, and distribution.
