In partnership with DHL Freight

Introducing our new partnership with DHL Freight, building on the success of our previous partnership for the Nordic region

We are excited to announce our new position as UK sales partner for DHL Freight, a strategic step which builds on the success of our Nordic partnership. This co-operation sees us working closely with DHL Freight for freight transport in the UK and between the UK and continental Europe.

Our customers will now have access to even more innovative DHL Freight solutions: alongside access to DHL Freight’s European groupage network, they can also benefit from their full and part load trucking capacity.

While DHL Freight will benefit from higher volumes and our ability to reload equipment out of the UK, we are able to further the environmentally friendly logistics in our portfolio, by using DHL Freight’s intermodal services.

We will work together with DHL Freight on major tenders, combining the strengths of an entrepreneurial, mid-sized British company, with the sheer scale and depth of infrastructure of a pre-eminent global logistics brand.

Our Managing Director, Peter, on the partnership:

Ian Baxter, Chairman, Baxter Freight:

“Our partnership with DHL Freight combines our experience as a medium-sized, fast-growing British logistics provider with the global market leader in this sector. Together we will deliver innovative, high quality, cost-effective solutions for our customers, helping them to optimise their logistics and improve their competitiveness in these complicated times. In these circumstances, people are expecting their logistics providers to deliver market-leading customer service, value for money and long-term support, factors that this partnership exemplifies.”

Thomas Vogel, COO, DHL Freight:

“We have chosen to partner with Baxter Freight because of their customer service driven reputation and sales-focused strategy, both of which are needed if we are to grow in the UK market in the current climate. With our partnership in the UK, we are able to offer our customers even more flexible and personalised services. I’m excited to see where the next steps take us as we jointly develop business between the UK and the rest of Europe.”
