Seafield buys freight forwarder

Seafield Logistics has acquired the business of Distribution Investments Ltd, the Hythe-based freight forwarder which counts Pepsico as its largest customer.

DIL imports Tropicana orange juice from France into the UK for Pepsico. Other areas of significant activity are in the movement of furniture and lighting.

The DIL employees will transfer to Seafield’s site at Aylesham bringing the services of both companies together under one roof.

Seafield chief Mark Strong said: “We are committed to ensuring customers of both companies gain the benefits of the new organisation while losing none of the benefits enjoyed under their existing arrangements.”
