Shipping News Feature

WORLDWIDE - The Volex Group - a world leading producer of high speed, fibre optic and complex cable assemblies - has awarded Swiss-based Panalpina the contract to manage their global freight requirements.

The contract comes after several months of collaborative efforts between the two companies and will see Panalpina not only placed in charge of managing the Volex Group’s worldwide logistical operations but also for conducting further studies into improving upon the group’s supply chain processes and implementing any recommendations.

Volex currently operates in seventeen countries around the world and plans to expand further in the coming years. The choice of Panalpina is regarded as ‘…another step in Volex Group's vision of further globalizing its business processes across the group.’
