UK – EUROPE - Interested logistics and supply chain specialists have just a few more days to register their interest in tendering for a large contract managing the freighting of around 13,000 pallets containing about 250 product lines across Europe. The request comes from United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) member Gideon Hillman Consulting which is looking for a suitable candidate to handle the outsourced logistics on behalf of a client.

The work entails managing some 1.4 million cartons in a pick, pack and despatch system servicing around twenty two satellite depots with a likelihood of an ever increasing workload. The goods involved are the multiplicity of items which Gategroup supplies to its client base of top airlines worldwide delivering their complex requirements for servicing travelling passenger needs.

The bulk of the items are ambient food and cosmetics and it is envisaged that the warehousing activity will be best suited to a shared-user facility. To ensure you are suitable for pre tender qualification applicants should register their interest with Gideon Hillman Consulting via email to rachael@hillman-consulting.co.uk by noon on Friday 16th November 2012, quoting reference ‘PTQ – 0123’ with all applications being treated as confidential.
