Feb 19, 2019: 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 fulfillment 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 etailers cost-efficient solutions internationally.

A statement from Kerry Logistics tells us that Kerry ESG, set to debut in March 2019, aims to become one of the leaders in global e-commerce fulfillment solutions, enabling etailers to deliver products to customers anywhere in the world quickly and cost-effectively.

Through direct integration with leading shopping carts and global marketplaces, etailers using Kerry ESG's services will be able to seamlessly manage their order fulfillment, inventory, and returns to and from multiple logistics centres through one platform.

William Ma, Group managing director of Kerry Logistics, said, "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, said, "Winning at e-commerce means getting every piece of the puzzle right, and fast, reliable fulfillment is a critical component of success. This partnership gives etailers access to an extensive distribution network to support e-commerce fulfillment in every market and with every online channel."

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.
