Gist 'peaks' with extra ICTS refrigerated trailers.
Gist Nederland, part of the UK company Gist Limited, is deploying extra ICTS refrigerated trailers with telematics during busy periods.
The ICTS refrigerated trailers are being used in December 2019 and January 2020 for one the larger Gist customers, Marks and Spencer, which experiences a peak in volumes in the run-up to Christmas. Gist Nederland, in partnership with Gist Limited, is providing the trailers that are being used for store distribution from Gist's distribution centres in the United Kingdom for a period of 6 weeks.
Joost Booij, Supply Chain Manager Gist Nederland, on the relationship between Gist and ICTS: "Gist has been working with ICTS since 2010 to help us cope with peak periods, but the relationship goes back even further. Those years of experience have resulted in an extremely good relationship, with ICTS knowing exactly what we need and expect. ICTS is always able to meet our demands."
With 23 locations and over 5000 employees, Gist, the logistics arm of parent company The Linde Group, focuses on transport, warehousing and order picking of food, non-food and horticulture (flowers and plants). Gist Nederland mainly serves transport routes between the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom.
