City Link has linked up with Global Freight Solutions, the parcel and carrier management service.
GFS was launched in 2001 offering customers the chance to move goods via a number of different couriers. It now handles several million items each year for customers in the financial services, technology, baby products, leisure and automotive industries.
GFS managing director Neil Cotty said: “We are constantly looking for partners who can help us literally deliver on our promises to clients. City Link’s undoubted strength in providing quality delivery services makes it a natural ally for ourselves. The fact that City Link also has the sort of strong reputation for technology which has underpinned our growth is another reason why we believe they will help us round out our offer to our clients.”
Duncan Faithfull, City Link’s sales & marketing director, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with GFS. Not only do they share a similar ethos to ourselves in terms of delivering exceptional levels of customer service but their key target markets very much mirror ours.”
