French alliance for Meachers

Meachers Global Logistics has formed a strategic alliance with French logistics provider Morvan Fils Transit.

Phase one of the partnership has seen Meachers receiving inbound freight from France for onward distribution across the UK, from January this year, shipped via St Malo to Portsmouth.

The two companies are currently looking into a second phase of the commercial agreement which could include the distribution of French and European outbound freight from the UK.

Xavier Haurez, Morvan Fils Transit’s managing director, said: “With this new partnership, we can offer our customers a full Logistics solution for their UK distribution needs. We are delighted to work closely with Meachers Global Logistics to develop new business opportunities between the UK and France.”

In December 2012, Meachers Global Logistics announced entering into a strategic alliance with the Isle of Wight’s Steve Porter Transport Group for the movement of cross Solent freight via Southampton.

All alliances and agreements help emphasise its commitment to exploring collaborative methods of working as part of its business development.
