“The experience and specialist knowledge that Freedom provide within the cool-chain sector will be of great benefit to our existing customers, especially the many we have in the Food industry”.

Freedom Logistics Managing Director – Chris Houghton – added ” Joining the Atlantic Pacific Group is a great opportunity for us. Gaining access to the group’s buying power, worldwide network and global service offering, while maintaining our dedicated and personal approach to customers, should open up a host of opportunities for our existing clients”.
