Dublin-based Toga Freight Services has signed a major deal with Loxx Logistics GmbH.
The collaboration between Loxx and Toga will see the Irish firm’s ”groupage” collections from across Germany, Eastern Europe, and Russia, amongst other areas, being collected by the Loxx partner network and ”trunked” to the Gelsenkirchen hub on a daily basis. Once at the hub, the cargo is added to all other Ireland-bound goods from the Loxx group.
The goods are then distributed in Ireland via Toga’s own delivery partner network which comprises 15 satellite deports and over 300 trucks and vans operating in Ireland.
Robert Dickinson, Commercial Director of Toga Freight said: “The turbulence around Brexit has encouraged large logistics providers such as Loxx to develop new supply chains that avoid transiting the UK, so they came to Dublin looking for an established company to manage their distribution requirements in Ireland.
At the same time, we were looking to strengthen our European connections to offer better services to our 200 or so Irish based customers.”
Martin Gately, Founder and MD of the Toga Group said: ”We have spent a lot of time recently advising our UK clients regarding Brexit and the future for UK to EU trade, but we have also been approached by numerous companies from Europe who are trying to avoid the UK in their supply chains.”
