Baxter Freight and DHL Freight to work together

[ December 18, 2020   //   ]

The road arm of DHL Deutsche Post Group, DHL Freight, has appointed Nottingham-based Baxter Freight as its UK sales partner for transport in the UK and between the UK and continental Europe. Baxter will offer DHL customers access to its UK network while DHL Freight will give Baxter Freight access to its European groupage network, as well as its full and part load trucking capacity and intermodal services.
DHL Freight will benefit from higher volumes and Baxter’s ability to reload equipment out of the UK. The two companies will also work together on major tenders.
Chairman of Baxter Freight, Ian Baxter, said: “Our partnership with DHL Freight combines our experience as a medium-sized, fast-growing British logistics provider with the global market leader in this sector. Together we will deliver innovative, high quality, cost-effective solutions for our customers, helping them to optimise their logistics and improve their competitiveness in these complicated times. In these circumstances, people are expecting their logistics providers to deliver market-leading customer service, value for money and long-term support, factors that this partnership exemplifies.”
DHL Freight chief operating officer, Thomas Vogel added: “We have chosen to partner with Baxter Freight because of their customer service driven reputation and sales focused strategy, both of which are needed if we are to grow in the UK market in the current climate. With our partnership in the UK, we are able to offer our customers even more flexible and personalized services. I’m excited to see where the next steps take us as we jointly develop business between the UK and the rest of Europe.”
