Food manufacturers share the load.
Pastries specialist Brioche Pasquier and Kavli Ltd, producers of quality spreadable cheeses, pates and dairy products, are 'sharing the load' with NFT to deliver their time critical food products to the regional distribution centres of Marks & Spencer.
Both companies will be using NFT's highly successful shared user distribution network to manage their daily deliveries. In doing so they will be joining the 70 plus other food retailers and manufacturers who already use the service.
Kim Bryan, Supply Chain Manager at Kavli, said: "Service is a pre-requisite for growing business with the multiples. We have had a longstanding relationship with NFT, who already handle our deliveries to Tesco and Somerfield, so they were a natural partner for the primary distribution of goods to M&S.
"The company's shared user network is ideal as it meets our exacting requirements for small variable but frequent deliveries. By consolidating goods through NFT's shared network we are also able to manage our costs effectively."
Michael Mary, Logistics Manager at Brioche Pasquier, said: "Our product range is imported from France at all times during the day. As such, we needed an experienced logistics provider that would offer flexible picking and delivery times. NFT offers a reliable 24-hour service and also handles our European-bound pallets, ensuring that bacldoading to the port in the UK is maximised."
David Frankish, Chief Executive of NFT, adds: "The supply chain for groceries is necessarily a very challenging logistics environment. Our shared user distribution network, which is one of the largest operations of its kind in the UK, provides a cost effective and highly reliable logistics solution for the benefit of food retailers and manufacturers alike when it comes to the timely delivery of both large and small volumes of goods."
