Huhtamaki deal for Meachers

Packaging company Huhtamaki has extended its contract with Meachers Global Logistics. 

Meachers has managed Huhtamaki’s national transport network, warehousing and freight forwarding since 2007. It will manage the delivery of pallets to locations throughout the UK and Ireland. Deliveries will be carried out using a combination of Meachers fleet of vehicles, together with a subcontracted element undertaken via Meachers’ partner organisations.

Huhtamaki is a global manufacturer of consumer and specialty packaging, based in Espoo, Finland. Its UK based operation, Huhtamaki (UK) Ltd, manufactures plastic and paper packaging for FMCG goods, fresh foods and catering disposable markets from its site in Gosport, Hampshire.

UK supply chain manager at Huhtamaki UK, Gary Owen, said: “Meachers has provided Huhtamaki with a first rate service throughout the contract period and we are confident that they will be able to continue to deliver this level of service. Our decision to re-appoint Meachers was not only based on their pricing structure, but was also influenced by the advantages that Meachers is a local company with its own fleet.”
