Integrated logistics provider, Partner Logistics, has reported a strong first quarter of 2015 with profits up significantly compared to that of the same period last year.
Supported by an overall increase in consumer demand for frozen food, the company has also seen a rise in occupancy across its six sites in the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium as well as nearly 1.5 million pallet movements, which is an 8.5% rise on the first quarter of 2014.
A priority for Partner Logistics is investing back into the business, with a significant focus on improving the external environments at its sites for better vehicle access, installing energy-efficient LED lighting and also enhancing technical maintenance and support across its sites to provide even greater operational flexibility. The company is also looking into opportunities for further capacity and extending its provision of value-add services.
Duco Buijze, CEO at Partner Logistics, says: “Following a buoyant 2014, the first few months of 2015 have been very successful for Partner Logistics, enabling us to continue investing back into the company so that our customers always receive the best supply chain solution and service.”
Joerie Poelman, Chief Financial Officer at Partner Logistics, said: “We’re very pleased with the positive financial figures from the first quarter of this year which support our long-term business strategy.”
Partner Logistics is a market leader in Europe for the provision of state-of-the-art, highly automated warehousing primarily for frozen foods. It operates six facilities – two in the UK, three in the Netherlands and one in Belgium.
