Hong Kong, 30 June 2017 - Kerry Logistics Network Limited ('Kerry Logistics' or the 'Company'; Stock Code 636.HK) proudly received two commendations at the 2017 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards ('AFLAS'). The Company was voted the Best 3PL for the second consecutive year, and the Best Logistics Service Provider - Air Freight for the second time. The award presentation ceremony was held in Singapore on 29 June 2017 to honour winners from around the world.

William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics, said, "As the first Asia-based international logistics company to have won in the Best 3PL category last year, we are excited to bring home this grand award again this year. The award is a testament to our commitment to providing end-to-end supply chain solutions that bring tangible values to cost efficiency, customer satisfaction and bottom-line results. We are thankful to our customers and partners for their continued trust in us."

Kerry Logistics is devoted to growing organically and through strategic mergers and acquisitions. Earlier this month, it significantly enhanced its rail, road and multimodal services and coverage in Central Asia through the investment in Globalink Logistics DWC LLC, a freight forwarding group with operations spanning across The Commonwealth of Independent States, thereby extending its global footprint to 51 countries and territories.

As an IATA agent for all major airlines, Kerry Logistics offers a full suite of air freight services, from pick-up at origins, multi-country consolidation and customs clearance, all the way through to delivery to end customers. Kerry Logistics' air freight services have garnered for the second time the Best Logistics Service Provider - Air Freight award, in recognition of its operation which runs around the clock to ensure the quickest transit time, optimal routings and maximum cost-efficiency.

Organised annually by shipping and supply chain industry publication Asia Cargo News, AFLAS honours and celebrates outstanding service providers including air and shipping lines, air and sea ports, logistics, 3PLs and other associated industry professionals for their excellence in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability. Unlike other awards judged by panels, AFLAS was nominated and voted by over 15,000 readers and e-news subscribers of Asia Cargo News, truly reflecting the opinion of industry insiders.
