Meachers Global Logistics, one of the UK’s leading independent providers of logistics services, has announced entering into a commercial agreement with French logistics provider Morvan Fils Transit.
From January 2013, phase one of the partnership will see Meachers Global Logistics receiving inbound freight from France for onward distribution across the UK. The services include full load, drop-trailer and consolidated freight consignments from across France and will be shipped via St. Malo to Portsmouth.
The two businesses are also exploring a further second phase of the commercial agreement, which could include the distribution of French and European outbound freight from the UK.
Meachers Global Logistics is firmly committed to exploring collaborative methods of working as part of its business development. In December 2012, it announced entering into a strategic alliance with the Isle of Wight’s Steve Porter Transport Group for the movement of cross Solent freight via Southampton.
Stuart Terris, Meachers Global Logistics, Managing Director said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Morvan Fils Transit. It is in line with our business and growth strategy and we look forward to exploring how we can partner together and develop further commercial opportunities.
Xavier Haurez, Morvan Fils Transit, Managing Director added: "With this new partnership, we can offer our customers a full Logistics solution for their UK distribution needs. We are delighted to work closely with Meachers Global Logistics to develop new business opportunities between the UK and France."
