Virgin’s on the road again

[ April 16, 2015   //   ]

Virgin Atlantic Cargo has extended its road feeder services contract with Jan de Rijk Logistics by three years and extended its network to over 50 airports in Europe.

As well as onward connections from London to major desinations such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt and Paris, served by next morning deliveries from the UK, Jan de Rijk will also offer deliveries across the continent and to Scandinavia.

Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s European service delivery manager, Jenny Holdaway, said the road carrier would also offer capacity on its fleet of specialist vehicles for temperature-controlled cargo, high value shipments and dangerous goods.

Jan de Rijk Logistics chief executive, Sebastiaan Scholte, added that a further attraction was his company’s Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and, now, IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
