Tibbett Logistics announced that it has won a new multi-year intermodal logistics contract with, Metro Group Buying HK Ltd. Based in Hong Kong, Metro Group Buying (MGB) is the non-food purchasing organisation within the Metro Group, and is responsible for the international procurement of direct imports for the retail group. In total, the business serves more than 2,200 Metro Group stores in 32 countries. Tibbett Logistics is a Romanian contract logistics company which forms part of Keswick Enterprises, a UK-based company that owns and manages logistics businesses.
Tibbett Logistics’ new contract will see the logistics specialist extend its activities as receiving agent for MGB in Romania, handling the documentation and planning of imports. It will also undertake inland haulage, by both road and rail, of inbound containers destined for Metro Cash & Carry outlets across the country.
Tibbett Logistics’ Chief Executive Officer, David Goldsborough said, “The award of this high-profile new logistics contract is particularly pleasing for the entire team because MGB was one of our very first customers when we launched our intermodal logistics service in Romania in 2008. It suggests that MGB has been satisfied with the quality of our services over a lengthy period of time.”
