Lynden International - Kerry Logistics Add Australia to Global Partnership



    SEATTLE, June 1 /CNW/ -- Lynden Air Freight dba Lynden International and
Kerry Logistics have added Australia to their growing list of international
forwarding and logistics coverage. The Seattle-based joint venture company
"Kerry-Lynden" now reaches nearly 40 countries, including Canada, Mexico and
U.S. Territories such as Puerto Rico and Guam.
    "By providing service in more locations worldwide, our customers can also
expand their own operations and services with the assurance that we offer the
same high-quality support in new geographic areas," says Lynden International
president Dennis Patrick.
    The addition of Australia includes coverage in major hubs such as Sydney,
Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and beyond.
    In 2006, Lynden International entered into an exclusive contractual
agreement with leading logistics provider Kerry Freight International Limited,
dba Kerry Logistics, to combine sales and operating resources in North America
and Asia.
    "This expansion is part of our ongoing strategy to respond to customers
needs," says Kerry Joint Managing Director Vincent Wong.  "Our customers
prefer to trade with a single global entity instead of multiple agent
partners, so we have expanded into new major world markets like Australia to
further streamline their experience with us."
    The Kerry-Lynden network now includes the following locations: Australia,
India, Greater China (The People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong SAR),
South Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand,
Cambodia, Myanmar, India, United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, France,
Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary, the Czech
Republic, the Slovak Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia
and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Ukraine.
