HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 26 March 2018 – Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’; Stock Code 0636.HK) won the ‘Excellence of the Year for Innovation & Leadership – Logistics Services – Global’ award at the LeFonti Awards (the ‘Awards’) presented in Hong Kong.
Backed by the Italian research institute and global independent publishing house LeFonti, the Awards were voted online by readers of LeFonti which has a readership of over 50,000, and were further evaluated by LeFonti’s editorial committee along with a team of dedicated legal, economic and financial journalists from over 120 countries across the globe.
The Awards lauded Kerry Logistics for its remarkable leadership in the global logistics industry. The company is implementing its global development strategy of capturing growth and business opportunities brought forth by China’s Belt and Road initiative, and expanding its international coverage across China, Central Asia, Europe, and the US.

Its seven robotic butlers were upgraded in 2017 to enhance stability and productivity.
