UK and Ireland BRC accredited multi-temperature supply chain specialist, Oakland International, have announced their collaboration with Spanish transport and Logistics operator, Carbó, in a move that will open new European trade corridors for producers.
Oakland International CEO and Co-Founder Dean Attwell commented: “Carbó and Oakland share common values and as responsible family businesses with strong social consciences, we share similar growth and investment strategies.
“By creating a collaborative partnership Oakland International’s UK and Irish operation provides existing Carbó customers with a significant extension to its service portfolio whilst their established network of Spanish hubs for chilled and frozen products offers access for UK and Irish producers with a new and cost-effective supply chain route into Spain, the Balearic Islands, Portugal, Italy and Andora.”
Oakland’s collaboration with Carbó offers significant cost advantages for retail distribution across 55,000 UK and Ireland destinations daily, supply chain savings of up to 80% compared to direct deliveries for chilled and seamless warehouse management system integration, as well as offering a single point of contact for customers.
A burgeoning international success story, born from a collaborative agreement between two forward thinking companies, is offering a unique and innovative supply chain solution proposition that cuts through International red tape of the import and export of goods.
Dean added: “Oakland and Carbó are unique in offering a one-stopshop supply chain solution for goods moving between our countries; exporting locally is the way forward.”
