HONG KONG: January 04, 2016. Kerry Logistics Network has opened its first IT Development Center in Penang, Malaysia in support of its rapidly growing international operations.

Establishing our IT development center in this dynamic city will provide us readily available local IT resources, a strong pool of multilingual talents, and good infrastructure support.”

Lim Guan Eng added: “It is with great honour that we add Kerry Logistics to the growing list of leading edge, innovative companies in Penang. Kerry Logistics’ global presence and experience in the logistics arena will help strengthen Penang’s position as a regional logistics and IT hub.
