Hong Kong, Wednesday, 30th October 2019: Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics’; Stock Code 0636.HK) has secured 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.
