Geodis UK has launched a new range of product packages specifically tailored for the UK business community.
A product development team was created to evaluate the real business needs of the modern business, their task being to identify and define these needs relevant to the services Geodis UK and the Geodis Group worldwide can deliver effectively and cost efficiently. Listening to the customer and reading the market from a customers perspective drove the product specification for these new packages. Market research revealed a need for a simplified product offering, stability, scalability and a customer-supplier relationship based on mutual understanding and benefit. Geodis UK has addressed all these requirements in developing these benchmark products for the UK market.
The transport market is often criticised for being set in its ways and is predominantly reactive to market demands, whereas modern businesses are dynamic, globalised and continually evolving. We took the decision to evaluate how we could improve and enhance our service and services to our existing and future clients. Geodis UK is a proactive company and knew innovation was crucial to increasing our competitive advantage in the UK market. The early indications are that we have got it right and we are looking forward to introducing these product packages to UK businesses who themselves understand and value the need for straight-forward integrated solutions to complex business issues related to Freight Transportation, Supply Chain and Logistics. said Jamie Cuthbert, Managing Director of Geodis UK
