“This is great news for our customers in Ireland and Northern Ireland, who are already benefiting from the innovations we’ve put in place. With this new integrated process, we are a stage further in developing and implementing smarter solutions to move our logistics function forward and deliver increased customer confidence and satisfaction.”
