Taste Ireland, an Australian distributor of Irish and UK foods, has announced a new end-to-end freight agreement with logistics company DHL.
DHL Global Forwarding will ship Taste Ireland’s products on direct sailings to Australia, selected to minimise transit times and the risk of in-transit food expiry. DHL will ship temperature-sensitive products in its refrigerated containers.
Prior to shipping, DHL will consolidate and pack Taste Ireland’s orders from customers including supermarket chains Coles and Woolworths as well as Irish pubs in Australia, to reduce container numbers and optimise transport costs and times for the distributor.
“We chose to work with DHL because of their exemplary track record in handling time-sensitive food shipments with strict compliance, accuracy, and efficiency,” said Eamon Eastwood, CEO, Taste Ireland.
“As our business continues to grow at breakneck speed, we needed a forwarder who could not only simplify and speed up our shipping process across numerous line items, but give us full visibility of and confidence in our shipments’ freshness when they arrive at each customer’s door.”
DHL will also pre-clear Taste Ireland’s shipments with Australian customs, and offer door-to-door airfreight for more urgent shipments.
“We’re excited to be helping Taste Ireland as it makes the leap from SME to global supplier of repute, by giving them total visibility and compliance across every facet of the logistics process as well as the support of our world-class customs clearance processes,” said Tony Boll, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding – South Pacific.
“The time previously spent on in-house logistics management can now go into how Taste Ireland markets and sells Ireland’s favourite foods to meet untapped and increasingly hungry demand throughout Australia and the South Pacific.”
