Haulage consortium Harlequin Logistics  has injected some snap, crackle and pop into its five members after revealing that its first contract has been signed with Kellogg’s.

Harlequin will deliver some 15,000 Kellogg’s loads per year from the cereal manufacturers depot in Manchester to retailers’ RDCs, wholesalers and cash and carry outlets nationwide.

Founder Paul Smith told MT earlier this month (6 Feb) that it was also set to start work on a second, as yet undisclosed, contract, this month with two or three more in the pipeline.

The consortium comprises of Currie European Transport, Jack Richards & Son; John Raymond Transport, R Swain and Sons and Prestons of Potto.
