Kerry Logistics Network Limited has moved its UK airfreight division into a new facility close to London Heathrow as it continues to grow its airfreight volumes. The 4,000 sq m facility operates 24/7 and provides a fully temperature-controlled bonded warehouse including deep frozen storage, pick and pack machinery, vacuum cooling and other operations to meet tight delivery schedules and product shelf life requirements. The facility has also achieved a rating of AA+ under the new BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8.
David Mallinson, general manager of the Air Division at Kerry Logistics UK, has commented: “Located at the heart of London Heathrow Airport, the new facility will allow us to accommodate the growth in our airfreight volumes and help us grow our presence in different verticals. At the new site, we have access to 24/7 operations offering full Customs clearance, real-time tracking, perishable handling and cold chain facilities, where we are serving customers including a UK retailer, for whom we ship perishables to China.”
