TNT chooses Meachers for trunking from Southampton

Southampton-based Meachers Global Logistics has won a trunking contract with TNT.

Meachers will use 25 articulated vehicles to trunk freight overnight from TNT’s Southampton facility to its national sorting hub in the midlands.

Jon Hadley, general manager of TNT Southampton said: “Meachers Global Logistics is ideally placed to support our Southampton regional facility with an overnight trunking service to our Midlands distribution hub. The company operates a fast, efficient and effective service and I am looking forward to working in partnership with the team. ”

Meachers recently went into partnership with Red Funnel Distribution. Commercial director Gary Whittle said: “We are delighted to be working with a household brand like TNT. This is our second major partnership announcement in the last two months and we are continuing to look at ways to collaborate with other industry partners.”
