City Link delivers stationery to Germany

SPC Verlag, which supplies student diaries, year books and planners has selected City Link to distribute its products to schools across Germany.

The firm is based in Huntingdon, and distributes up to 600,000 individual items each year across Germany.

City Link provides regular 48 hour delivery cycles via its Road Express Service to Germany, but is also tasked with warehousing the stationery, and arranging delivery directly with schools.

In one instance SPC had just two weeks to ship over 60,000 planners to 40 schools.  City Link arranged for a convoy of five vans per day to travel to Germany to ensure on time delivery

Maxie Schiffmann of SPC said:  “we were faced with a crisis City Link really came to the fore which is what a true partnership is all about.”
