Shipping News Feature

UK - Supply chain management specialist, TDG, is providing a complete export shipping management service for Europe's leading coloured and specialist paper manufacturer, James Cropper Speciality Papers (JCSP).

With the new contract meaning the handling up to 50 consignments a day, TDG is now managing all of JCSP’s paper shipment requirements by air, sea and road freight, as well as handing all of the freight forwarding documentation.

The contract is a result of a business expansion plan that TDG has implemented so as to develop its business in specialist freight areas such as chemicals, paper and packaging and temperature controlled services whilst simultaneously continuing the company’s existing traditional haulage business.

Kim Gilbert, Export Sales Manager at JCSP, said that:

‘We were impressed with extent of TDG's global supply chain network, and their existing involvement in the paper industry aided the decision to change to TDG. Their operational processes, customer service and their ability to address and overcome shipping problems have made a really positive impact on our business since we made the change to TDG.

‘TDG s positivity and can-do approach has been refreshing,’ she added.

Jonathan Tremlett of TDG said: ‘The market is now recognising TDG as a first class supply chain operator offering customer focused end to end services. Our freight forwarding business unit grew by 25% last year as a result of our dedication to focused account management and seamless operational execution.’
