Fresh will be providing chilled storage in four warehouses around the UK, collecting daily and running nine Ribena branded refrigerated 7.5t’s to ensure the consumer enjoys refreshingly cooled drinks at each location. The vehicles will be carrying stock for three Ribena flavours, Blackcurrant Light, Strawberry plus Pineapple and Passion-fruit whilst transporting and arranging all the event kit too.

Interesting fact – Over 95% of all British Blackcurrants go into Ribena’s drinks.

Fresh Logistics’ business development manager Oli Saffell commented: ‘‘We were approached by TRO a month ago to help fulfill an exciting but complex logistics opportunity with Ribena. We have worked hard to get to the position where we are now, giving us the resources available to work on projects such as this. With the agile, hardworking and quirky nature of our business, we are able to
provide the perfect fit in a very short space of time for TRO and Ribena to deliver the service offering they required.’’
