Delivering the Pride of Thailand
Looking back, 2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges for Thailand and Thai people. However, it is in times of such adversity that the quality, resilience and values of a country and, indeed, of a company prevail. While Thailand was among the best-performing Asian countries in terms of how it countered the threat of COVID-19, Kerry Express (Thailand) Public Company Limited (“KEX” or “Kerry Express”) was proud to play a major role in helping the country and its people through these trying times with our best-in-class services and tight internal disease prevention measures.
Faced with the most severe pandemic of our times, KEX continued to deliver growth and positive financial results, while also continuing to recruit and train talents from different disciplines to become our future leaders in different positions.
Apart from enhancing our core delivery network and improving our overall efficiency, we did not forget to innovate. For example, the farm-to-table service we launched during the lockdown in the second quarter of last year not only helped farmers sell and send their produce to local consumers, but also opened up a whole new segment us, which we believe offers tremendous growth potential.
We will continue to be agile and resilient to change, highly focused on making our services greater, and fully responsible to all people, including our stakeholders and shareholders, our valued customers and our thousands of hardworking employees.
Despite the difficulties of 2020, last year ended perfectly for KEX when we were listed on the SET on Christmas Eve. In this festive season, KEX quickly became a stock code that was very well-known in households across the country and a symbol of trust among our existing and future shareholders.
Leveraging on our resilient business model, proven track record of operational excellence and continuous innovation, financial strengths, and remarkable governance, KEX is well-positioned to seize the opportunities that lie ahead in 2021. We will continue to be agile and resilient to change, highly focused on making our services greater, and fully responsible to all people, including our stakeholders and shareholders, our valued customers and our thousands of hardworking employees.
KEX was founded in Thailand in 2006. Striving to be the pride of Thailand has always been our vision, and we will continue devoting ourselves to achieving that aim in the years to come.
