Kerry Logistics Network Limited (Kerry Logistics) has appointed Claire Trench as the new Head of Food and Beverage (F&B), to be based at its Glasgow office in the United Kingdom.


Trench brings a wealth of experience, 17 years in forwarding and more recently senior managerial positions with leading brands in the beers, wines, and spirits industry. The new role will see her supporting brands looking to export to the rapidly developing F&B market in Greater China, where Kerry Logistics offers complete cold chain logistics solutions, F&B trading, and production services.


“Claire brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise – commercially and operationally – on both exports and imports,” said Emma Rowlands, sales director of Kerry Logistics (UK). “We look forward to developing this division and welcome the opportunity for growth from both new and existing customers soon.”


Trench will collaborate closely with the F&B teams in Hong Kong, mainland China and Taiwan, meeting customers’ requirements by providing complete cold chain solutions to ensure that all products stay at their optimum temperature along the supply chains.


Kerry Logistics’ cold chain solutions include sophisticated inventory management and multi-temperature warehousing and distribution solutions, ranging from deep frozen(25°C), frozen (-18°C) to chilled (0°C to 4°C) to air-conditioned (18°C to 22°C) and ambient (>25°C). Its professional fleet of trucks supports just-in-time delivery, continuous replenishment to restaurant and retail chains and home delivery.
