KERRY LOGISTICS HELPS FAMILY-OWNED FANCY DRESS BUSINESS SMIFFYS TAKE SUPPLY CHAIN TO ANOTHER LEVEL
Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’; Stock Code 0636.HK) has fulfilled a global supply chain contract with UK-based family-owned fancy dress business Smiffys.
As part of the contract, the Hong Kong headquartered logistics company has set up a new central distribution centre for Smiffys in Ningbo, a key port and industrial hub in east China's Zhejiang province, where it will operate a pick and pack operation to supply their overseas markets.
Kerry Logistics will provide global freight forwarding services including ocean freight and supply chain solutions from China into the UK, Germany, Australia, and the USA.
“We are delighted to be working with Smiffys to be a long-term partner in their continued overseas growth. It’s a great showcase for Kerry given the complexity of integrating Kerry WMS system with our PO Management tool enabling total visibility of stock from factory to final destination,” said Emma Rowlands, Strategic Sales Director, Kerry Logistics.
Kerry Logistics will also manage the purchase order management and visibility solutions for Smiffys via the Virtual Buying Office (VBO), a web-platform designed to enhance efficiency and visibility across the company’s supply chain.
