Geodis lands clothing contract

Geodis UK is to take on 90 per cent of outdoor clothing manufacturer Regatta’s continental pallet distribution.
Regatta operates a consolidation warehouse in Trafford Park, Manchester, which serves as the European hub for imports from its production sites across the world into the UK.
Geodis UK currently transports up to 200 pallet loads per week from the hub, providing distribution by road across the continent via its Eurofirst product.
John Mulvihill, logistics manager, Regatta, said: “Historically, we used a number of different providers to obtain the most competitive pricing for each individual shipment. Geodis was not only among the most cost-effective of our providers but also delivered an outstanding and thoroughly reliable service and was a natural choice when we looked to consolidate our continental distribution.
“The Eurofirst service meets our requirements perfectly, with regular scheduled departures and door-to-door transit times as short as 24 hours to most major European cities. We have ambitious plans to grow our European business and actively sought a partner who could service that growth – Geodis, with their established continental network, will be able to support our business as it expands.”
