Kerry Logistics Network Limited has opened up a rail route to Ulan Bator in Mongolia out of its Riga, Latvia Freeport hub.
The Globalink Riga Consolidation Hub in the Riga Freeport is operated by Globalink Logistics. Goods and parcels come from across Europe and North America to be consolidated at the site within 1-4 days of despatch. They are then sent by direct mail to Ulan Bator. Rail is the most efficient way to access the remote, landlocked country in the Far East.
William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “The new services greatly enhance the freight cost-efficiency and variety of solutions to Mongolia for our customers. To access the landlocked Mongolia, our strong rail freight capability in Central and East Asia gives us an invaluable advantage. In addition, under the management of Globalink Baltics, our freight hub in Riga is playing an indispensable role in enriching our service portfolio along the Eurasian freight route. This new addition to our facilities in Europe will prove increasingly significant as a connecting point between Europe and Asia and allow us to strengthen our presence in the region further.”
Siddique Khan, CEO of Globalink Logistics, said, “Our Consolidation Hub in the Freeport of Riga offers an essential link in the cargo supply chain between Europe, North America and The CIS and Mongolia. At a time when the demand for temperature-controlled logistics is on the rise, the new road and rail freight products fit the bill as the ideal alternatives, while drawing on Globalink’s expertise and established network throughout Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia to bridge the gaps in the market.”
