KERRY LOGISTICS GIVES SEALIONS, MERLIN AND REGGIE, A LIFT TO CHINA


Sealions, Merlin and Reggie, make a new life in Hainan, China, after Kerry Logistics arrange first class travel

Hong Kong, Monday 09 September 2019:  Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’; Stock Code 0636.HK) has transported two sealions from the United Kingdom to their new home in Hainan Ocean Paradise theme park, Sanya, Hainan Island, China.

Kerry Logistics teamed up with Hainan based Kerry EAS Logistics, to ensure a swift transhipment, which saw the pescatarians settling into their new home within two hours of landing.

“Naturally, the welfare of the animals was of paramount importance,” said David Mallinson, General Manager – UK Air Division, Kerry.

“This was considered at every part of our process in airfreighting the creatures to Sanya.”

Merlin, from Brightlingsea, Essex, UK, and Reggie, from Flamingo Land, Malton, North Yorkshire, UK, were transported to London Heathrow via dedicated, temperature-controlled vehicles, after the appropriate and mandatory veterinary and quarantine controls.

“Transhipment via any other European or Chinese airports was not in the animal’s interest, so we opted for a direct service, and the choice of aircraft (Airbus A330 – 200) that gave the guarantee of the hold temperature being regulated between two and eight degrees centigrade,” said Mallinson.

The veterinary process was orchestrated within 48 hours of flight departure, as defined by the very strict regulations that surround quarantined conditions.

After Customs clearance the animals were sent directly to the aircraft side and loaded for a flight of 11 hours and 40 minutes.

“Prior to shipment, Kerry Logistics were instrumental in ensuring that all documentation was in good order.

“This included ensuring all of the documentation was correct; Quarantine Certificates, European Health Certificates, Certificates of Origin, Live Animal Packing Declaration and Import Permit for China.

“Our team showed great flexibility and understanding in planning and executing this shipment.

“We look forward to receiving similar requests,” said Mallinson.

Neither Merlin nor Reggie were available for comment.
