Global third-party logistics (3PL) services provider Kerry Logistics has expanded its presence in Vietnam with the opening of a new 10,000 square-meter (30,000 square-feet), Hanoi-based facility.

Entitled the Kerry (Hung Yen) Logistics Center, company officials said this facility, which is located between Hanoi and the port city of Haiphong and provide direct ocean access to international markets, will begin operations in November. This new facility will serve shippers in the electronics, hi-tech, fashion, garments, food and beverage, and industrial sectors.

“We have invested in developing a national logistics network in Vietnam during the last few years and the new Hanoi facility completes our coverage of the key industrial areas in North, South and Central Vietnam,” said Robert Tan, Managing Director, South Asia.

A major driver for this new facility, according to Kerry, was increased demand from customers in Vietnam in recent years, adding that this new facility completes the company’s coverage of key industrial areas in North, South, and Central Vietnam. And it also has direct highway access to Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport and close to Hai Duong Inland Container Depot.

A company spokesperson told LM that Kerry had planned for this facility since last year, with construction expected to be completed during the third quarter.

“Our target is to serve as many customers as possible and to achieve economy of scales,” said the spokesperson. “We will arrange about 30 staff to station at the facility. More manpower is expected if the cargo volume increases and more VAS are requested by customers.”
