Harlequin seals first contract win with Kellogg's

Five strong haulier consortium Harlequin Logistics has signed its first contract with Kellogg’s – just seven months into its first year of trading.

Harlequin will deliver Kellogg’s products from its depot in Manchester to retailer RDCs, wholesalers and cash & carries nationwide.

The consortium which comprises Currie European Transport, Jack Richards & Son; John Raymond Transport, R Swain and Sons and Prestons of Potto was set up by former Jigsaw Solutions founder Paul Smith in July 2011.

“The fact that Kellogg’s, one of the world’s best-known and most iconic brands, has opted for Harlequin as its transport supplier, speaks volumes. We will deliver around 15,000 Kellogg’s loads this year, from Scotland to the south coast, and are confident that our unique structure will enhance the service provided,” he says.

Smith tells that a second deal is due to start in the coming months, with “two or three”  further deal set to follow later in the year.
