Kerry Logistics has received the Wine Storage Management Systems Certificate – Fine Wine Category from Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency (HKQAA) – a quality award for our excellence in wine storage management.
The company has 29 years experience in wine storage and delivery and has been working with Hong Kong’s top two wine traders for eight years. The SAR government abolished the import duty on wines in 2008, which has resulted in a boom in the import/export and auctioning of wine in the territory. The value of the wine business is expected to increase to HK$4.64 bn by 2013.
Kerry Logistics manages wine logistics operations across the globe in 330+ cities in 24 countries. Services include international freight forwarding, import/export handling, optimal cellarage conditions, distribution and value-added services.
“We are very pleased to receive HKQAA certification following a rigorous audit and inspections. Since Hong Kong is now recognized a leading global hub for the wine industry and there will be many opportunities for us to expand our network in the future,” said Jesse Lui, Executive Director.
Careful handling is required to ensure that wine is stored in optimal conditions and we monitor and manage temperature, light, vibrations, maintenance, security as well as inventory, hygiene and insurance.
