When sourcing a logistics provider to service a major modification programme, Derby based Air International Transit looked no further than Meachers Group Holdings. Meachers, based in Derby and Southampton, is supporting Air International Transit with both their logistics and warehousing requirements.
Air International Transit's Derby facility, an integral part of the Australian based company's global structure, provides customers with After Market support for its own products and other Rail HVAC equipment. The requirement for a major modification programme necessitated the company transporting equipment to the South and transferring obsolete equipment back to the Midlands.
Meachers Group Holdings is assisting Air International Transit with its refurbishment programme through 2006 by transporting over 200 loads as well as supplying the company with secure storage facilities.
Commenting, Will Farrell, Service Manager at Air International Transit said: “We chose Meachers as the company has an excellent local management team and a first class reputation for service and reliability, which we believe is an essential factor to help us manage and achieve the strict financial restraints within this major project.”
As part of its planned expansion in the Midlands, Meachers Group Holdings relocated last year to new, purpose built offices, situated alongside its existing one-acre site at Raynesway, Derby, on the ring road to the M1 motorway. The site operates as a trunking centre as well as offering warehousing, freight forwarding and a large transport fleet.
“Our ongoing investment in infrastructure in the Midlands is paying dividends with our Derby facilities already exceeding our high expectations,” commented Gary Whittle, Commercial Manager at Meachers. “Air International Transit is yet another contract we have won in the region that required an integrated approach to both transport and warehousing”.
Since Meachers located a Midlands based depot in Derby in 1998, the company has become a major logistics supplier in the area. From this depot, Meachers operates a full range of services including road haulage, warehousing and freight forwarding. Add-on services include devanning, palletising and storing, and picking, labelling and distributing goods to customers throughout the UK.
