Kinaxia Logistics acquires Fresh Freight Group

Gateshead, UK: Kinaxia Logistics has bought Gateshead company Fresh Freight Group.

Fresh Freight started by delivering flowers from Holland to the UK and soon became one of the leading independent fresh produce hauliers in the North East. From there, the business has diversified and now provides a full cross section of logistics services including temperature controlled, general transport, pallet network, warehousing, freight forwarding and other services.

Kinaxia logistics director, Peter Fields, said: “It should come as no surprise to the market that Kinaxia has broadened its reach to include the North East. The group strategy remains to acquire successful, professionally operated, service-focused, family-owned companies and our purchase of the Fresh Freight Group is further evidence of this.”

Fresh Freight Group has 75 vehicles and operates 100,000sq feet of warehousing and is a shareholder member of the Pallet Track network.
