Debenhams chooses Kerry for Middle East expansion

Debenhams has chosen Kerry Logistics to provide logistics services to support its export market in the Middle East.

Kerry Logistics will handle all airfreight from Debenhams’ distribution centre in Peterborough, UK, to destinations in the Middle East, including Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan.

Steve Bowkis, director of imports and exports at Debenhams, said that he is delighted to have Kerry Logistics on board as our air export logistics provider.

Emma Rowlands, UK sales director for Kerry Logistics, said: “Other logistics providers are committed to a strict hub-and-spoke system and are dependent on Heathrow, where space is getting more limited, but we can be flexible and can work around our clients’ requirements.”
