IPP Logipal gets fruity with AG Thames

22 December 2010

IPP Logipal has secured a new contract to supply Chingford Fruit, part of the AG Thames Group

AG Thames’ subsidiary companies Grapes Direct and British and Brazilian have benefited from IPP Logipal’s focus on service, value and simplicity for some time and it was this experience that convinced Chingford Fruit to switch to IPP Logipal’s Trade Direct pallet rental solution.

A private family group established in the early 1970s, AG Thames has maintained steady organic growth and targeted acquisition to achieve its current status as a major supplier for blue chip UK retailers, food service and wholesale markets of globally sourced fruit. Chingford Fruit is a worldwide fresh produce business, responsible for importing and distributing over 11 million crates of fruit per year.

As part of the deal, from its strategically located regional distribution centre in Crayford, Kent - established to support the company’s expanding produce sector customer base in the area - IPP Logipal makes regular deliveries to Chingford’s depot.

Deliveries are made utilising IPP Logipal’s Trade Direct solution, specially devised for the fresh produce and chilled sector, where IPP Logipal pallets are delivered direct from retail outlets thus ensuring a low cost to AG Thames and also reducing the environmental impact of the pallet rental service.

Eliminating one transport leg and also handling at depots, IPP Logipal’s Trade Direct pallet solution plays its part in reducing the environmental impact of the grocery supply chain. An AG Thames, spokesperson, commented: “We have been impressed by IPP Logipal’s service and high reputation in the fresh produce sector as two of our produce companies already used their service.

“IPP Logipal’s specialist team provided us with a competitive and flexible solution to work with and a service that more than exceeds our expectations.

“We’ve found the whole process much more simple and cost effective than our previous arrangement with less pallet management and administration involved, freeing up time and resources for us to concentrate on our core business.”
