Kerry Logistics has announced a new joint venture with E-Services Group (‘ESG’), an international e-commerce company in Asia, to strengthen global e-commerce fulfilment capabilities, especially in the Greater China region. The joint venture, Kerry ESG (HK) Company Limited (‘Kerry ESG’), will combine Kerry Logistics’ global supply chain capabilities with ESG’s technology platform, global marketplace networks, and e-commerce expertise to offer e-retailers cost-efficient solutions internationally.
Through direct integration with retailers’ shopping carts and global marketplaces, e-retailers using Kerry ESG’s services will be able to manage their order fulfilment, inventory, and returns to and from multiple logistics centres through one platform.
William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics, said: “We are thrilled about the growth opportunities in global e-commerce. With Kerry ESG, we are creating a unique platform with total solutions from upstream marketing to downstream logistics that will capitalise on the booming international marketplace model to facilitate the exports for our international brand customers.”
Alan Lim, Founder and CEO of ESG, added: “Winning at e-commerce means getting every piece of the puzzle right, and fast, reliable fulfilment is a critical component of success. This partnership gives e-retailers access to an extensive distribution network to support e-commerce fulfilment in every market and with every online channel. With Kerry Logistics we have found a great partner, whose capabilities complement ours and whose culture and vision matches that of our team.”
Kerry Logistics has identified cross-border e-commerce, particularly between Greater China and ASEAN, as a major growth sector which plays to its strengths. The new partnership with ESG, which is the official partner of leading marketplaces including JD.id, Rakuten, and Newegg.com, will play a pivotal role in strengthening the foothold that the two companies have in this area.
