Manor Fresh has recently awarded a contract to Gist to become a key logistics provider.

 

Gist's transport operation now collects around 2.75 million cases of fresh vegetables each year from UK sites in Lincolnshire, Chipping Campden, Inverness and Arbroath.

 

Manor Fresh was impressed by Gist's extensive network coverage and their radio frequency identification (RFID) cross-dock capability that complements Manor Fresh's business operations, enabling them to deliver improved accuracy to their customer.

 

Specialist expertise proves key

 

Michael Scott, Manor Fresh commercial manager, said: "Gist is providing Manor Fresh with robust yet flexible logistics solutions that are tailored to suit our needs. Gist has listened to us and allowed us the flexibility that we need to provide our customers with the very highest quality products."

 

Martin Gwynn, Gist chief executive, said: "Gist has built a leadership position in the fresh produce supply chain, and we are very pleased to be able to deliver Manor Fresh a solution to their logistics operations that has been tailored to their business needs."
