In an ever-changing logistics landscape, KLN’s flexibility sets us apart, while our reliability strengthens our relationships with customers, which enables us to capitalise on potential market opportunities.”
Leveraging its sea freight capabilities, KLN maintained scale and volume in the Trans-Pacific trade lane in 2022.
