Fueled by the rise of e-commerce, and the demand for expedited delivery times, the logistics market is currently amid a transformational renaissance.
GEODIS intensifies UK focus on Contract Logistics and Freight Forwarding offering
In order to strengthen its key activities in the UK market, global logistics group GEODIS will deliver greater focus on its Contract Logistics and Freight Forwarding activities. Today, GEODIS is present in 18 locations across the United Kingdom, serving local and international customers with transport and logistics solutions.
“With this move, we aim to provide a strengthened and specialized offering to our customers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and also to all companies outside the UK that carrying out business there” says Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Officer of GEODIS. “Focusing on international trade flows to and from the United Kingdom, as well as dedicated Contract Logistics services within this large national market, will allow us to better meet the business needs of our customers.”
As a consequence of the strategic choice to serve the UK market through a fully-owned network, GEODIS has decided to discontinue those Distribution & Express activities that are carried out by partner companies. A gradual transition plan for those activities is in progress.
