January 2020: Perishable Movements Ltd (PML), the no1 handling agent of perishable goods, announces an official partnership with GreenSky, international experts in perishable air freight logistics.
The move to work with GreenSky provides PML with the ability to expand its global partner network into Mexico and offer customers further trade lanes in to, and out of, the North America region.
PML has linked with GreenSky for many years under a non-partnership agreement but the company was keen to cement a more formal arrangement, underpinning the business’ commitment to providing a seamless door-to-door air freight solution to Mexico.
Commenting on the news, Nick Finbow, Sales Director says, “GreenSky represents a perfect fit for PML, we have known our colleagues there for many years and as a result, have built up a working relationship based on trust. GreenSky shares our dedication to delivering an exceptional customer service experience which represents the best in class in the perishable fruits and vegetables sector. This arrangement enables us to provide clients seeking to move goods from Mexico to the UK with a one- stop shop, handled by a highly reputable agent with proven local knowledge and an unsurpassed standard of operations which includes triple inspection of product, technologically advanced global documentation, and the quickest delivery schedule possible. Although initially we will be operating out of the main growing areas in Mexico, both companies are optimistic about the opportunity to extend this offering to include additional export routes based on GreenSky’s global air freight experience. The partnership will be effective from 1st January and marks another important milestone for PML, enabling the business to capitalise on the buoyant Mexico market, which is currently witnessing the export of salad onions, blueberries, blackberries, eggplant and avocado.
Traditionally, these products have been transferred by numerous agents or faceless multinationals but with the new deal in place PML can offer a viable alternative proposition to growers, exporters and importers, backed by our heritage as a trusted, customer-service driven and 100% reliable logistics provider.”
