Kerry Logistics expands UK network with two acquisitions
Kerry Logistics has strengthened its presence in the UK by adding two regional freight forwarding firms to its network. The operator has acquired Bergen Freight Forwarding, based in Manchester, and Regency Forwarding, with its headquarters in Yorkshire.
Bergen is a long established company, specialising in sea freight imports from India and the Far East which will help to strengthen Kerry’s freight forwarding capabilities in the UK and Europe.
Regency was established in 1979 and has its main office in Yeadon. The company offers airfreight, sea freight and international trailer movements for both imports and exports. Regency focuses on imports from the US and Asia and exports to international destinations. Locally, the company will enable Kerry Logistics to extend its coverage across the industrial heartland of Yorkshire and the North East of England.
“Bergen and Regency will strengthen the Kerry Logistics’ network in the UK and across Europe as well as extending our reach into the UK’s major manufacturing regions in the North of England,” said Gary Wilcock, managing director, Europe, Kerry Logistics.
