Kerry Logistics Peru offers a range of supply chain solutions from air and ocean freight to customs clearance and domestic transportation across the country. Its target markets include the mining industry, apparel, automotive, high-tech as well as pharmaceutical. For the mining industry, which constitutes Peru's principal source of economic growth as the world's second largest producer of copper, silver and zinc, the Peru team will provide dedicated air and ocean freight for import and export as well as transporting of mining equipment and component parts. The Lima office is also well-placed to provide export services to Peruvian apparel manufacturers for the distribution of high-quality cotton products to international brands and fine alpaca garments to the world.

Our strengthened foothold in the Americas, including the connections from Huntsville, Alabama, and Miami, Florida in the US to Latin America, will facilitate intercontinental transportation of goods in the wake of massive disruptions to the global supply chains."
