ACS&T extends contract with seafood company Young’s for three years

Food logistics company ACS&T has signed a new three-year contract with Young’s, a British producer and distributor of frozen seafood products.

ACS&T has been providing services to Grimsby-based Young’s since the early 1990s, and this latest extension to their collaboration will see the logistics company supporting the food firm by providing storage and distribution services to its foodservice division.

ACS&T managing director Malcolm Johnston said that the company aims to continue helping Young’s minimise its primary food miles and reduce costs by cross docking the majority of its deliveries to Wolverhampton.

“Our experienced transport operations department uses high-tech planning software that identifies which deliveries qualify for cross docking and this has helped us to provide the best possible solutions for making sure that our service meets and exceeds expectations,” Johnston said.

With the new deal, ACS&T will continue to assist Young’s in lowering its administration costs through an electronic data interchange (EDI) link between its IT system and the Young’s Seafood ordering system.

This link allows information sharing about stock levels and orders between the systems, enabling orders to be passed directly to ACS&T in real time.

This capability significantly improves and streamlines the order process, saving Young’s time and increasing the accuracy of orders.

ACS&T operates from four centres in Grimsby, Wolverhampton, Tewkesbury and Scarborough, with 12 cold stores, three ambient stores, comprehensive co-packing facilities and large shared-user multi-temperature transport fleets.
