Monday 26th Sep 2016 - Logistics Manager

NFT signs three contracts

Farmhouse Fare, Cherry Valley and Denhay Farms have joined the NFT shared user distribution network.

The companies specialise in puddings, duck-range products and cured bacon, respectively. NFT will manage the supply of goods into the regional distribution centres of Marks & Spencer, delivering products on a daily basis.

James Cranfield, group distribution manager at Farmhouse Fare, said: “We deliver high volumes of palletised goods each week and NFT provides a cost-effective shared user logistics solution that is reliable and tailor-made to our requirements. This ensures that supermarket shelves are always well stocked with our range of traditional puddings.”

Mike Smith from Cherry Valley added that the shared user network would open up consolidation opportunities in the future, while Jim Loescher, operations director at Denhay Farms said the agreement would enhance accuracy of deliveries at a competitive price.

This year NFT will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in time-critical food distribution.
