Kerry Logistics has established its name as a trusted logistics service provider for the automotive industry, notably in the Asia Pacific region.

Automotive Logistics

We have decades of experience in building regional and intercontinental supply chain solutions for automotive clients from inbound logistics for parts at manufacturing plants to aftermarket parts distribution. Each new vehicle is assembled from approximately 2,500 parts; we manage the flow of the components from suppliers to OEM assembly plants in China, Asia and around the world, providing parts consolidation and transportation.

Supporting the manufacturing process we provide sequencing, kitting sub-assembly and daily deliveries. The rise of Complete Knock Down kits and assembly in emerging markets in Asia have driven brand organisations to increase sourcing, production and sales throughout the region. Our automotive supply chain specialists and network of strategically located logistics facilities deliver the right solutions for OEMs and suppliers.

In the automotive aftermarket, effective parts distribution is a critical tool in ensuring end user satisfaction. We have the infrastructure in China and Asia to support the distribution of parts for dealerships and workshops. Kerry Logistics provides inventory management, shipment consolidation and import/export management for manufacturers who distribute parts and accessories in the Asia region.

We have a specialist team of automotive logistics professionals who can manage the flow of inbound components, spare parts and CKD kits. Growth in ownership of private vehicles in Asia has resulted in a spectacular growth in this sector. Asian, European and US car manufacturers are all increasing production to cater for demand from Asian customers. We work with a number of spare parts suppliers to ensure components and accessories are managed efficiently from around the world and throughout the region.

Conversely as more automotive production moves to Asia, demand for outbound logistics services are also growing car owners in Europe and the US. Vehicles manufactured in Japan, Korea and China are in growing demand overseas and Kerry Logistics manages the flow of automotive products from the region to the rest of the world.
