|10. UK to Poland service from Gefco|
|September 17th, 2007|
Gefco has announced the launch of a new line haul between Poland and the UK as part of its strategic development in central and eastern Europe.
The transport and logistics group claims that the new line haul between Poznan, Poland and Coventry in Britain will strengthen links between the UK and central and eastern Europe.
Gefco is working with its European subsidiaries to provide customers with integrated import and export services in the region and the sub-48-hour line haul will initially operate three times a week, with plans to expand it to a daily service in the future, Transport Intelligence reports.
Responding to growing demand, the firm has already signed up customers for the new service, including Land Rover, Arvin Meritor and Delphi.
Alexander Forst, Gefco UK business development manager, said: "This new line haul will mean improved transit times, reduced handling of products and more effective tracing of goods across the region."
Gefco is also expanding its operations within the UK, as demand for transport and logistics services continues to grow. The company recently re-opened a rail link between its Sheerness and Corby vehicle distribution facilities in response to evidence suggesting that a modal transport shift from road to rail can have a positive impact on the environment.
