Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics Network’, ‘KLN’; Stock Code 0636.HK) was named the Excellence in Third-Party Logistics at the Hong Kong Economic Times (‘HKET’) Excellence Awards 2023 (the ‘Awards’) for its diversified supply chain solutions and exceptional service.
KLN was commended for its significant achievements and contributions in the area of professional services towards the economic and social development of Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area in 2022. During the year, KLN launched a new international e-commerce express solution from Hong Kong to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand for SMEs, as well as a customised home delivery service for patient medication when Hong Kong was hit by the fifth wave of the COVID outbreak. It also set an example as a sustainable business, by pioneering as the first logistics company in Hong Kong to deploy electric trucks.
Ellis Cheng, Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “As a global 3PL rooted in Hong Kong, we make the best efforts in contributing to the local and regional communities. We are grateful to HKET for recognising the role we play in providing the services essential to daily lives, as we work to create more value for our shareholders. With sustainability at the heart of what we do, we hope to be at the forefront of moving towards a net zero world.”
Organised by HKET, a leading financial media in Hong Kong, the Awards aim to recognise companies of distinction and drive sustainable development of local enterprises. The winners are selected by a panel of judges based on four criteria, namely, philosophy and value proposition, strategy and implementation, achievements and contributions, as well as future vision and plans, in addition to a tally of votes by the general public.
