Liz Truss MP recently met with Full Mix Marketing’s clients Johnston Logistics UK to learn more about their increased success with overseas clients and ecommerce fulfilment.
The Chief Secretary to the Treasury was responding to an article in the local business press which arose from a blog created and disseminated by Full Mix Marketing. The article prompted the local MP to visit and resulted in further press coverage.
She was keen to discover why more international companies have approached the third-party logistics specialists since the Brexit referendum.
“It’s great to see a strong local business already benefitting from Brexit” said the member for South West Norfolk. “More international businesses are looking to Johnston’s to help them establish a dedicated UK hub for their products. As a government, we want to understand ways we can support UK businesses and help them maximise such opportunities.”
From their 130-acre site in Snetterton, Johnston Logistics UK deliver warehousing, logistics and fulfilment services for businesses throughout the UK, EU and across the globe. Liz toured their extensive operations, which range from bottling and distributing new-world wine for a leading supermarket, to providing logistics supporting to high-growth local businesses.
“We’re delighted to have Liz’s support and her here to listen to our ideas” says Rob McIndoe, Director of Johnston Logistics. “Though it will present challenges, we’ve experienced a boost from both Brexit and the change in UK consumer’s behaviour. As well as more overseas customers, we’re investing in technology to help us deliver ever better ecommerce fulfilment for the increasing number of consumers buying from our clients online.”
