Geodis the groupage and logistics specialist has extended its European wine distribution operations by opening a new global distribution centre in Dover.

Based in Poole, Geodis has been distributing on behalf of the wine industry for more than 20 years and covers 120 countries.

The new offices in Dover will bring together a specialist team which aim to build on their experience by strengthening their global capabilities.

The company handles around 7,000 cases of wine each week for wine merchants such as Boutinot, Yapp Brothers and Laithwaites in Europe delivering wine imports to the UK from Europe.

Part of their operation provides logistics to the International Wine Challenge by collecting entries from wine producing companies around the world and delivering them direct to London.

Jamie Cuthbert managing director of Geodis UK, said: " We have worked hard to establish this particular area of business, investing in personnel and processes to ensure optimum supply chain performance for our customers.

"The addition of our new Dover facility, with a specialist team in place, will reinforce our offer to the wine sector and enable us to apply best practice learned in Europe to a global market environment."
