Food logistics expert ACS&T has announced it will continue to provide supply chain solutions for seafood giant Young's for a further three years, after an extension to the existing deal was confirmed.
ACS&T has been working with the Grimsby-based seafood company since the 1990s and this latest development means ACS&T will continue to support Young's offer by providing storage and distribution services to their foodservice division.
Malcolm Johnston, managing director of ACS&T, said: "Of course we're thrilled. The aim is to carry on helping Young's minimise its primary food miles and reduce costs by cross-docking the majority of their deliveries to Wolverhampton.
"Our experienced transport operations department uses hi-tech planning software that identifies which deliveries qualify for cross-docking and this has helped us to provide the best possible solutions for making sure that our service meets and exceeds expectations."
Chris Law, logistics manager for Young's Seafood, said: "Having worked with ACS&T for a number of years, we were confident in their ability to continue to provide a cost-effective and efficient logistics operation. ACS&T pays real attention to our storage and distribution requirements and is always willing to go the extra mile to assist with our demands - and our customers' demands."
