The announcement follows a successful collaboration on Young’s chilled operation over several years and the assistance provided to Young’s Pinneys of Scotland site over the past summer when it was faced with a short notice requirement for third-party storage.
Chris Law, logistics manager for Young’s, said, “This partnership has been slowly developing and Reed Boardall has stepped up every time we have asked them to.
“We are impressed by their ability to respond and are confident that they will take good care of our foodservice customers and deliver the expected performance this area demands.”
Howard Gill, md for Reed Boardall’s transport division, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this piece of business which further strengthens our beliefs in our single-site model, enabling us to deliver the service and the agility required in Young's Seafood Limited’s supply chain.”
