• Advantia names Spicers as logistics partner from 2018

        • Advantia has announced that from 1st February 2018 its solus office products logistics partner will be Spicers. This decision has been reached following a lengthy review of the needs of the Advantia members and the solutions offered by logistics providers inside and outside of the office supplies sector.

          Advantia deeply thank the team at Truline for their exceptional input into this review process and for their commitment to work closely with the Advantia team until the end of the year, thus ensuring a smooth transition for both Advantia members and Truline.

          Bob Geens, Advantia Chairman said, “we embarked upon this review process more than 12 months ago. It was important that we appoint a logistics partner that has the capability to meet the needs of the Advantia members now but also demonstrate that they can fulfil the ongoing requirements of our members as their logistics requirements evolve over the next five years.  We are therefore very pleased to announce that we have appointed Spicers to be our office products logistics partner from 2018 and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”

          Jeff Whiteway, Group CEO of SPOT added, “Spicers are delighted to have been awarded the Advantia contract. This win follows more than 12 months of dialogue between our executive teams, during which time Spicers invested heavily in our operational capacity building an enviable, highly efficient and effective structure geared to providing industry leading levels of service. Advantia were forerunners in driving efficiencies through the supply chain, creating a model that delivers tangible profit benefits to its dealer members. We are delighted to be able to partner with them once again, especially given the unanimous decision across the Advantia dealer base. The Advantia executive team ran an excellent professional process and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

          “Whilst this is a major win we are very confident in providing a high quality and progressive service, with this contract taking just 25 per cent of the additional capacity we have already created.”
