William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “We
are very proud of this successful spin-off and listing, and the enthusiastic
reception from investors. KETH is now a true Thai company that belongs to the
Thai people to serve the Thai [people/population]. Kerry Logistics Network has
