Employees at the Cardiff Depot of City Link, the UK’s premium express delivery Company, are celebrating after landing a contract worth £780,000 a year.
Williams Medical Supplies, based in Rhymney, Gwent, has appointed City Link to take care of all its distribution needs.
It follows a successful month-long trial partnership between the two companies. City Link fought off competition from rival distribution companies to win the contract.
Clive Reynish, General Manager of the Cardiff Depot said he and his team were delighted with the win.
He said: "Williams Medical Supplies is a highly respected Company and has a reputation second to none as the leading provider of medical supplies and services to the healthcare market in the UK. As part of our contract we are distributing supplies to more than 8,000 surgeries and Primary Care Organisations across the country."
The new contract win comes on the back of City Link’s recent move into a flagship Depot, at Taffs Well. Mr Reynish said the move had proven essential as increased business across the NP and CF postcode areas had led to the Company growing out of its former home on the Portmanoor Industrial Estate.
The new Depot measures 51,000 ft. and has a team of 80 who serve 150 Customers and handle 9,000 parcels daily – and that figure is still growing.
City Link, which is this year celebrating its 40th anniversary, operates 3,000 vehicles from a network of 84 Depots across the UK, handling approximately 350,000 parcels daily.
