Geodis AirDirectGEODIS has launched a full-cargo, weekly service from Hong Kong to Guadalajara, Mexico.

Operated by a chartered B747-400ERF and MD-11 F aircrafts , AirDirect Mexico represents a completely new, nonstop service in the market, providing GEODIS’ customers with a highly reliable solution and secured capacity, in addition to GEODIS’ other air cargo services, AirFast, AirFlex and AirSave.

Commenting on the new service, GEODIS’ Executive Vice President for Freight Forwarding, Eric Martin-Neuville says, “We have been encouraged by the initial bookings that we have received for our inaugural flight and expect these to rise to a threshold volume where a second, and eventually, a third flight per week, will be established.”

GEODIS’ own and direct flight service between Hong Kong and Mexico also represents one of many initiatives that are being introduced to the market as part of a regional, multimodal growth strategy. “AirDirect Mexico follows the recent launch of our Road Network service in South Asia, providing scheduled services with day-definite transit times to all major destinations in the region”, explains Onno Boots, GEODIS’ Regional President and CEO for Asia Pacific. “As part of this growth strategy, Hong Kong is GEODIS’ hub for China and Southeast Asia originated cargoes to Mexico, Latin America, USA and Europe.”

Robert M. Krautheim, Regional Head of Sales for Freight Forwarding in the Americas adds, “GEODIS consistency combined with access to premier wide-body aircraft cargo capacity means our clients will enjoy better lead times and a reliable supply chain for dangerous goods, lithium batteries, and general cargo.”

AirDirect Mexico is the newest example of how GEODIS continues to offer its customers a truly integrated, end-to-end supply chain solution with focus on day-definite and reliable transit times, complemented by the Road Network services in Asia and on-carriage solutions in Mexico, including daily scheduled intra-Mexican deliveries to all locations in the country. GEODIS continues to be a leader in innovation by finding new ways to serve customers globally. This new service will ensure just-in-time service and space commitment through an Own Controlled Network (OCN) allowing GEODIS’ customers to meet and exceed their consumers’ expectations.

Palletways GroupLogistics firm Palletways Colchester announces four senior appointments to further develop the business in East Anglia and deliver a quality service to its customers.

Palletways Colchester is a dedicated regional depot for Palletways UK, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network. The depot provides pallet delivery and collection services for businesses in Colchester, Felixstowe, Ipswich, Braintree and the surrounding areas

All four appointments aim to strengthen the transition of the business to meet the needs of its customers and demonstrate high quality customer service. Steve Dowd is appointed as the depot’s General Manager whilst Ross Deacon joins as Operations Manager. Jackie Marks becomes the firm’s Sales Manager and Simon Colyer its Customer Service Manager.

Rob Gittins, Managing Director of Palletways UK, said: “These senior appointments demonstrate the importance we place on recruiting the best people in the industry, who understand the market and the challenges our customers face. They bring with them considerable knowledge of the logistics market and their industry experience is second to none.”

Steve, with the help of his new team of managers, successfully navigated the transition of the business to Palletways Colchester. He has considerable experience within the logistics and transport industry working at previous companies in the general manager role. Meanwhile Ross brings over 18 years’ experience in the sector and will look after its well-trained local team of drivers.

Jackie’s previous roles have been at Sales Manager or Key Account Manager level looking after high-profile customers including Argos, Tesco and John Lewis. She’ll be looking to build brand awareness and attract new customers. Simon has been promoted through the business and oversees the office team to ensure customers are delivered through the Palletways network as smoothly as possible.

Palletways Colchester handles single pallet shipments to large scale consignments within the IP, CO and CM postcode areas. The team manages and services all parts of the operation from its local collection and delivery operations, up to trunking its longer semi-trailers between Palletways Hubs and the depot.
The owned depot company is one of over 115 transport providers that are part of the Palletways UK network. They benefit from shared expertise and resources from within the group to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before. The Palletways Group comprises 450+ depots and 20 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 20 European countries, including the UK.

Election Day slumpThe UK's pending general election may hit retailers hard, with the second Thursday - the day on which the election will be held - traditionally the busiest for gift sending.

Parcel comparison site ParcelHero says the date the Government has chosen for the General Election, the second Thursday in December, was the busiest gift sending day of the year in 2018 – and it predicts Christmas orders and deliveries will be hit-hard in what has already been a terrible year for many retailers.

David Jinks MILT, Head of Consumer Research at ParcelHero, reveals: ‘The second Thursday of December in 2018 was ParcelHero’s busiest of not only Christmas peak, but the entire year. Both parcel volumes and the amount senders spent reached their maximum as people sent gifts to friends and relatives in the UK and shipped international deliveries overseas. Last year the second Thursday fell on the 13th , this year it is the 12th: which is of course Election day.’

Explains David: ‘The Government couldn’t have chosen a worse day for retailers and shoppers sending parcels than the 12th. Customers using ParcelHero to send parcels through companies such as DHL, UPS and TNT reached their absolute peak on this day last year. Our invaluable Christmas parcel tool reveals the 12th is the optimum time for sending presents to places such as Australia and New Zealand; a couple of days later and any Customs issues could mean gifts fail to arrive in time for Christmas in a number of key destinations. And the Election will also discourage shoppers ordering items for home delivery on this key day, as they queue to vote instead.’

Concludes David: ‘Retailers already face unprecedented problems as Brexit has caused consumer confidence to plummet. Now politicians have introduced another hurdle with an unpredictable Election that’s unlikely to leave any of us feeling more financially secure on the 12th. Because of Brexit and General Election concerns, it seems one in five shoppers actually plan to spend less this Christmas than in 2018. An Election on what is effectively D-Day for courier deliveries won’t help one bit. The spirit of Christmas will have to blow very hard this December to restore consumer confidence and avoid a further crisis for retailers at their most important time of the year.’

Air Canada 1Air Canada’s first Airbus A220 has been unveiled when it rolled out of the painting hangar at the A220 final assembly line in Mirabel.

In December, Air Canada will be the first Canadian airline to take delivery of this Canadian-designed and developed aircraft when it receives the first of its 45 A220s on order. The A220 features an innovative cabin design, as well as significantly lower emissions and a reduced noise footprint.

The A220-300 for Air Canada will provide passengers with superior comfort in a 137-seat dual-class cabin layout. Air Canada's brand new A220-300s will replace the flag carrier’s existing mainline fleet of smaller, older narrow-body aircraft and support the airline’s hub and network growth, creating one of the world's youngest and most fuel efficient fleets.

Now that the aircraft is decked out in Air Canada’s livery, it has moved to pre-flight activities in the A220 flight line hangar in Mirabel, before taking off for its first flight later this fall.

Currently, there are 94 A220 aircraft flying with six operators on regional and transcontinental routes in Asia, America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, proving the great versatility of Airbus’ latest family member. The A220 has an order book of 530 aircraft as of the end of October 2019.

PLA AGM 2019 1Project Logistics Alliance, last month, held its 3rd Annual General Meeting in the magical city of Istanbul, where East meets West and where modernism blends with historical beauty. Istanbul was carefully selected amongst other cities to provide attendees with unrivaled hospitality of the Turkish culture, interesting cultural experience, as well as an inspiring and engaging atmosphere for our one-to-one meetings.

We are extremely pleased by the number of attendees that registered to participate in this event, which by far exceeded our expectations: 171 participants from 101 different companies, representing 87 different countries.

The 3rd Annual Meeting was hosted at the 5-Star Hilton Bomonti, located on a hill with a terrific view over the Bosphorus River and the Marmara Sea of Istanbul. The event kicked off with registrations and then a welcoming dinner in the Cloud 34 Bar, on Sunday 13th Oct. The elegant bar area on the top floor of our hotel was closed for the Project Logistics Alliance community and the welcoming dinner was generously sponsored by our member C.H. Robinson. The guests were served a flying buffet and drinks for a first get-together, which successfully set a high note for the upcoming days.

After a warm welcome from CEO Alexander Hellmers and Network Coordinator Maya Wagner, the delegates grouped up for a photo and then the one-to-one meetings commenced. All meeting participants were provided with 35 meeting slots spanning 3 intense days, which fully showcased the professionalism of our network. Additionally, 4 case studies were presented by selected companies to stimulate discussion, transfer knowledge and raise attention to currently arising important topics of the logistics industry.

To round off the first day, the delegates were brought to a small island right between the European side and the Asian side of the Bosphorus River. On the island stood a unique piece of architecture dating back to the Byzantine era 1110 A.D., called the “Maiden’s Tower”. Under a night sky lit by a ravishing orange moon, it was time to wind down and enjoy each other company. We would like to express our gratitude to our new member for Canada, Convoy Logistics Providers, for sponsoring this event and making this wonderful evening possible.

Another special feature of this years’ Annual Meeting was the simultaneous hosting of the Annual Conference of the Africa Logistics Network (ALN). For the very first time, two entirely separate managed networks decided to host their Annual Meetings at the same time and the same place to allow its members to mingle on a common meeting day. Our partnership with the Africa Logistics Network is a worldwide unique example of two networks collaborating and complementing each other for the benefit of their members. After a common dinner cruise on the Bosphorus River on Tuesday evening, the one-to-one meetings were combined on Wednesday, October 16, the last day of the event. While members of both sides were not obliged to meet with the other network, many took advantage of this occasion and broadened their networking even further, making the most out of these 3 days.

As a premium global network of selected project freight forwarders, our 2019 New Year’s resolution was to bring together even more people, improve their opportunities of connecting with industry experts worldwide, and enable our members and partners to extract more benefits in a time and cost-saving manner. The Annual Global Meeting in Istanbul took us almost a year to plan and organize, however, we are proud to say that we have successfully ticked off this main challenge from our resolutions.

As many of you know, our Annual Global Meeting has and will always focus on creating the best business outcome for you. We aim for a couple of intense and rewarding days with a tightly organized schedule that provides time for many good encounters and conversations, enabling you to meet with the right people for your projects. While we know business takes time to nurture, the initial response after Istanbul has been overwhelmingly amazing, thanks to the participation of every single one of our delegates and sponsors.

We look forward to hosting many more successful meetings in the following years, and hope to always see both old friends and new members & partners there!

Grimaldi Grimaldi Group has christened its new pure car & truck carrier Grande Torino in the port of Civitavecchia. The ceremony was conducted by anchorman Massimo Giletti with godmother of the ship being Cristina Chiabotto, Italian showgirl and TV host.

The local authorities, the top management of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) Supply Chain and of the Grimaldi Group as well as the entire port community of Civitavecchia took part in the event. Speakers at the ceremony were Francesco Maria di Majo, President of the Port Authority System of the Northern Central Tyrrhenian Sea, Vincenzo Leone, Civitavecchia Harbour Master, Mauro Coletta, General Director of the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, Ernesto Tedesco, Mayor of Civitavecchia, and Emanuele Grimaldi, Managing Director of the Grimaldi Group.

After the greetings, Monsignor Cono Firringa, parish priest of the Cathedral of Civitavecchia, proceeded to bless the ship. The ceremony ended with the cutting of the ribbon and the traditional breaking of the bottle by the godmother Cristina Chiabotto.

The event took place on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary from the start of the commercial relations between the Neapolitan Group and FCA, when the first car carrier with the “Grimaldi Lines” livery was named Warrington as a tribute to Fiat UK, whose headquarters were at that time in the homonymous city. The Warrington was employed on the route between Italy and the United Kingdom transporting Fiat cars for the British market.

“Today we welcome the new flagship of our Group for the transport of cars, which represents a further and significant step forward in the direction of an increasingly ecofriendly fleet, which guarantees a truly sustainable maritime transport: the Grande Torino is fitted with an electronically-controlled main engine, as well as with a hybrid exhaust gas cleaning system”, declared Emanuele Grimaldi. “The name of the ship makes reference to the city where Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has its headquarters, thus honoring the long and fruitful partnership that has bound us for half a century to one of the most important car manufacturers in the world”, concluded the Group’s Managing Director.

The Grande Torino is the first unit of a series of seven sister vessels ordered by the Neapolitan group to the Yangfan shipyard. It has a length of 199.90 meters, a beam of 36.45 meters, a gross tonnage of 65,255 tonnes and a service speed of 19 knots.

The ship, which flies the Italian flag, is one of the largest car carriers on the market: in fact, she can transport approximately 7,700 CEU (Car Equivalent Units) or, alternatively, 5,400 linear meters of rolling units and 2,737 CEU. With her four hoistable decks, the Grande Torino is an extremely flexible vessel, able to load any type of rolling freight such as trucks, tractors, busses, excavators, etc., up to 5.3 meters high.

From an environmental point of view, the Grande Torino is a highly performing ship. She is, in fact, fitted with an electronically-controlled (Man Energy Solutions) main engine, allowing her to meet the new regulations for the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx), as well as with a hybrid exhaust gas cleaning system for the abatement of sulphur oxide emissions (SOx). Moreover, she is equipped with a ballast water treatment unit, which allows her to meet the most recent international regulations.

The Grande Torino will be employed on the weekly ro-ro service operated by the Grimaldi Group between the Mediterranean Sea and North America. She will serve the following ports: Gioia Tauro, Civitavecchia, Livorno, Savona (Italy), Valencia (Spain), Antwerp (Belgium), Halifax (Canada), Davisville, New York, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Houston (USA), Tuxpan and Veracruz (Mexico).

SHI Following concerning reports earlier in the year, the latest Seafarers Happiness Index report has shown a marked improvement in happiness levels amongst seafarers across all sectors of the industry.

The index, undertaken by The Mission to Seafarers and supported by leading P&I insurer the Shipowners’ Club, is a gauge for measuring the feelings and experiences of seafarers across the global maritime industry. Conducted every quarter, in the latest report overall seafarer happiness has risen from 6.27/10 to 6.59 – a very promising sign for the industry.

Happiness regarding interaction with other crew members has also increased notably, up to 7.28 from 6.85 last quarter. This is one of the highest figures provided in the five years since the report began and suggests a growing sense of comradery amongst seafarers.

The latest report, which covers the third quarter of the year also saw a record number of participants engaging with the Seafarers Happiness Index. This is encouraging as it suggests that more seafarers see the value in having their voice heard on a global platform.

After findings from the second quarter of the year showed happiness amongst seafarers onboard cruise and ferry vessels to be 15% lower than other vessels, it is very encouraging to see that happiness levels in this sector leapt up a full point to 6.3/10. It is hoped that this indicates an improvement in working conditions, while the pressures from a busy summer season are also likely to have eased.

Steven Jones, Founder of the Seafarers Happiness Index, commented: “The Mission to Seafarers has been contacted by several cruise ship operators following the release of the last report. It is a very positive sign to see the results from the index being taken seriously by the industry. Hopefully, some of the insight we provided has contributed to this improvement in seafarers’ sentiments about life at sea, although there is no room for complacency on any of the barometers of happiness used by the index.”

Louise Hall, Director – Loss Prevention at the Shipowners Club commented: “The positive results from this quarter’s Seafarers Happiness Index demonstrates the effectiveness of this initiative, and its associated outreach projects, in improving the quality of life for those at sea.

“The index is providing a more accurate image than ever before of the conditions across the global fleet. With record numbers of seafarers participating in the survey and engaging with the research, we have been able to identify more ways to support our Members in prioritising the health and wellbeing of their crew.”

While results across the board were generally very positive, the anecdotal evidence from seafarers identified a number of ongoing concerns. The impending IMO 2020 sulphur cap appears to be a source of stress for many seafarers. The report indicates that there is a widespread fear of blame for non-compliance, suggesting that some seafarers don’t feel prepared for the cap, which comes into effect in the New Year. Many participants reported concerns that discrepancies in data, in addition to tougher inspection regimes, could result in seafarers facing prosecution by authorities.

While there has been much attention given to the financial impact of IMO 2020 on shipowners, this evidence shines a light on the day-to-day pressures on those serving at sea and the need for governments and shipowners to prepare seafarers for the change. The report indicates that the companies investing more resources into training have happier crews – highlighting the importance of seafarers feeling confident in their own abilities and with the responsibilities placed upon them by new regulations.

Understandably, salaries also play a significant role in helping seafarers to feel stable in their careers. Whilst youngest seafarers appear to be the happiest – reflecting enthusiasm about seeing new parts of the world, with a very high 7.9/10 – many reported that low wages were making them question their future careers. This is concerning for the future of the maritime industry, with the potential for a ‘talent-bleed’ if seafarers are lost to other industries.

Happiness amongst those aged over 45 showed a marked turnaround in this quarter, reaching an impressive 7/10. While a number of seafarers declared their pride in working at sea, budget cuts were a common concern with no seafarers feeling “wealthy” in their home nations. This indicates that although life at sea is a cheerful one, the practicality of wages may not support the career choice in the long-term.

Overall, this report has shown a more promising set of results as we approach the end of 2019. It would appear that industry-wide changes in attitudes could influence widespread progress in 2020, and there is a strong sense that some of the improvements that The Mission and others have been advocating may be gaining traction.

CargoSphereContainer shipping rate network CargoSphere has launched eSUDS Connector, a universal rate structure and API for ocean carriers to accelerate 100% digital rate distribution to customers.

eSUDS Connector offers carriers a standard API to transfer confidential customer contracts, amendments and global surcharge tariffs to the CargoSphere neutral rate network using a common data format and structure. The data is processed through CargoSphere's eSUDS (electronic Smart Upload and Diagnostics Solution) engine and made available to forwarder and shipper customers in real-time.

CargoSphere's collaboration with the world's top ocean carriers ultimately led to a common data model that takes into account the unique ocean pricing practices of each carrier. This flexible approach meets the distinct needs and data structures of today's ocean carrier leaders. The industry has been challenged to digitalize ocean rates as each ocean carrier has its own discrete systems, underlying business logic and data structures.

The eSUDS Connector aids in strengthening ocean carrier - customer relationships by eliminating the volumes of manual work of rate management that create massive constraints in pricing operations. A new level of productivity, accuracy, and rate access will be achieved as rate data flows seamlessly in real-time.

"We have been working for nearly twenty years to systematize ocean rate management and distribution to break this tedious, time-consuming, and unproductive paradigm. This is a major milestone for the company and industry. With the acceleration of digitalization, the ocean carrier community is ready to adopt smart innovations where they make sense. Hamburg Süd and other leading global carriers are already using eSUDS Connector and we expect rapid adoption in the container shipping industry," said Neil Barni, Managing Director of CargoSphere.

CCA picShippers will share insight into challenges facing the temperature-controlled supply chain at the Cool Chain Association (CCA)’s Americas Conference, Sustainability Matters, next month.

The Produce Marketing Association (PMA) and California-based berry shipper Driscoll’s, will join speakers from Air France KLM, Cargolux, and Able Freight, amongst others, for a two-day event focused on a people, profit, planet business model for a sustainable cool chain future.

Thought leaders and innovators from across the supply chain will share insight on new developments, and delegates will take part in a tour of facilities at Los Angeles International Airport, as well as a live demonstration of the Kold Kart, a temperature controlled air cargo dolly.

“The business landscape is rapidly changing, with technology bringing new opportunities, and evolving consumer and customer demands,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, Cool Chain Association Chairman, and Cargolux Global Product Manager Pharma & Perishable.

“At the same time, there is a pressing need for us to address sustainability issues, from better caring for our environment, to ensuring a responsible and healthy future for our industry, and for the people who rely on it from first, to final mile.

“Our cool chain industry must ensure product integrity, learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, digitalise and share data to embrace the people, profit, planet framework and drive sustainable development for both pharma and perishables.”

The conference will cover the shippers’ perspective, innovation and new ideas, data sharing and transparency, standards and certification, challenging products, and packaging.

The two-day event Sustainability Matters in Los Angeles will run from 18th to 20th November 2019

Hamburg AirportHamburg Airport has launched its new FAIR@Link portal to provide greater sustainability and transparency as well as faster and more efficient processes for the companies involved in air freight handling.

The launch follows a six-month test phase and has gone into full operation for digitally-supported air cargo handling at Hamburg Airport Cargo Center.

The air freight market has undergone many changes in recent years. Express service providers have set new standards for the shipment of air freight goods, which focus on faster processing times and thus increase the pressure on the classic air freight market. Hamburg Airport was one of the first German airports to react and push ahead with the digitalization of processes, confirms Alexander Müller, Head of Cargo at Hamburg Airport: "The new platform is an important step into the digital future for us. With FAIR@Link, we can significantly improve handling processes and manage the increasing volume of traffic on the ground more efficiently. At the same time, we increase sustainability and promote environmentally compatible growth for the location.”

With FAIR@Link, forwarders can book time slots for deliveries. This results in shorter waiting and handling times, more transparency along the transport chain and improved documentation for handling agents, who no longer need to re-enter duplicate data - thus avoiding mistakes and saving time. A particular advantage of digitalization is that the system can prepare export Customs declarations and then automatically submit the electronic forms to Customs upon entry to the Hamburg Airport Customs Office geofence area.

Slot booking makes planning easier

All participants have already noticed clear improvements in their processes during the pilot phase. In addition to Hamburg Airport and DAKOSY, the pilot participants included the forwarders CROSS FREIGHT, Delta-Stallion, a.hartrodt and SABLE, the handling agents LUG and Swissport, the Hamburg Airport Customs Office and the Hamburg Forwarding Agents Association (VHSp). Jens Sorgenfrei, Managing Director of CROSS FREIGHT Internationale Speditionsges. mbH, sums up the advantages for freight forwarders: "Transports pre-registered via FAIR@Link are handled preferentially by the handling agents at the airport. The slot bookings save us several hours every day. Processes are easier to plan. All in all, we benefit in Customs and door clearances." Dr. Jürgen Vogt, Managing Director of LUG, also sees it as positive from the viewpoint of handling agents: “With slot booking, our EDP system receives all information before the arrival of the goods. The data does not have to be entered again when the document is received. This enables us to save a lot of time and speed up the receiving process. With FAIR@Link, we gain more transparency into all processes and can better manage our capacities with regard to door and personnel availability.”

The platform was developed by DAKOSY, which also operates the Port Community System for the Port of Hamburg and the Cargo Community System for Frankfurt Airport. Ulrich Wrage, CEO of DAKOSY, is pleased that his company can support the digitalization process at Hamburg Airport: "Through connectivity and intelligent process support, FAIR@Link can optimize the physical processes between companies and achieve significantly faster and more transparent processing. In addition, the platform promotes ecological concerns, as optimized traffic management and reduced check-in and waiting times lead to CO2 savings. And it saves paper, too."

Les Smith Haulage lays foundations for future growthExpanding Swindon-based firm Les Smith Haulage has laid the foundations for future growth with substantial investments in its sustainability programme.

A member of the Fortec Distribution Network for the past four years, the family-run firm has expanded its warehousing from 30,000 square feet to 68,000 square feet across two depots and increased the size of its workforce by a quarter.

Substantial investment of around £60,000 in fleet upgrading and staff training has made it well-placed to deliver directly into London’s ULEZ, which will expand in 2021 to cover all of London between the North and South Circular roads.

With FORS Silver accreditation under its belt and most of its fleet – 34 out of 41 vehicles – meeting Euro 6 exhaust emissions standards, it is also future-proofing its business against the farther spread of restrictions on diesel engines in other UK cities.

Five cities have already been ordered to draw up Clean Air Zones - Birmingham, Southampton, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby – and another 28 ordered to draw up plans on reducing the levels of polluting NO₂ in the air.

Company Director Nick Smith said: “We are already being asked to undertake runs into London for other hauliers whose vehicles are not Euro 6 compliant and who would be charged £100 a day to enter the ULEZ.

“I can see this market continuing to grow because the investment required to upgrade to Euro 6 compliant vehicles is substantial. Already a number of smaller carriers are simply shutting up shop because the investment is so large.

“The industry is going through a huge shake-up and it will be a case of survival of the fittest as more and more regulations come into force, including the Clean Air Zones.

“We looked ahead and made the commitment to invest in both warehousing and Euro 6 vehicles, a decision which has definitely paid off. Being part of the Fortec Distribution Network, too, has also given us a competitive advantage.”

Founded in 1975, Les Smith Haulage is now run by its late founders’ sons, Tony, Danny and Nick, and has grown from a one-man operation to employ 53 people, including Tony’s son Craig and Danny’s sons Keiran and Ryan and Nick’s son Frazer.

Specialising in motorbike distribution, storage and delivery, the company has over the years delivered items as diverse as speedboats, jet skis and even a £25,000 bonsai tree.

Most of its fleet of 27 rigids and 14 articulated lorries are Iveco, with a few Mercedes and DAF and the company operates its own fleet of Moffett forklifts to aid in-store deliveries.

Nick Smith who is a member of Fortec’s member board added: “Whilst we class ourselves as a general haulier, our membership of Fortec represents an important part of our business and has played a key part in our continued growth.”
