Menzies drivers will collect packaged orders from wnDirect’s retail customers and deliver these to processing centres in Derbyshire and Kent to be combined for export loads.

UK managing director Jonathan Matchett said: “Our customers need a simple, fast and effective service and Menzies can deliver that. We are committed to supporting our retailer partners to enhance their customer satisfaction levels through a successful delivery supply chain, which is particularly important as we enter the peak period leading up to Christmas.”

Forsyth Black, managing director of Menzies Distribution, said: “This is a major milestone in our efforts to develop a broader logistics offering, building on the strengths of the press distribution business.”
