UK final-mile partnership forged

International Cargo Logistics (ICL) has expanded its temperature-controlled airfreight capabilities as part of a collaboration with FreshLinc.

The two companies, who already work together on sea freight container transport, will now partner on final-mile delivery for UK airfreight.

The FreshLinc cold chain storage facility in Spalding will double up to serve as a control point for customs checks and clearances, further streamlining operations.

“This strengthened collaboration with FreshLinc comes at an exciting time for ICL, following closely on the heels of the opening of our new Rotterdam office last month,” said ICL’s Perishables Sales Director, Nick Finbow. “This aligns with our ongoing growth plans, improving our ability to deliver high-quality logistics services from our Heathrow site for our clients in the perishables sector.

Further improvements to the company’s cold chain solutions will come later this year when its Heathrow site undergoes renovations.

“The combination of ICL’s expertise with FreshLinc’s nationwide coverage will provide an efficient and reliable route to market,” said FreshLinc CEO, Lee Juniper. “FreshLinc’s facilities give our joint customers, such as ICL, the opportunity to clear products closer to the point of discharge, saving valuable time and allowing for fresher product entering the food chain.”
