Prima Cheese operates a state-of-the-art factory, storage and distribution facility in County Durham.
From small beginnings
Warrant Group’s relationship with Prima Cheese started with exporting sample and pallet orders which gradually grew into consistent, weekly full container loads.
Our role was to listen, understand and deliver the logistics expectations that Prima wanted using our sector knowledge and experience.
Warrant Group provided shipping advice on overseas destinations supported in relation to local laws, customs clearance and documentation procedures.
End-to-end export shipping
Warrant Group takes responsibility for the entire end-to-end export shipping process for Prima Cheese.
Products are exported in refrigerated containers, so it is important to have visibility of orders to plan loadings at the most cost-effective price.
By ensuring we have empty refrigerated containers available in the North of England to meet the collection dates and times requested, we minimise road delay risks and cost impact of round-trip haulage pricing from southern ports.
Supplier relationships built up over more than 30 years, give Warrant Group flexibility in the UK supply chain.
If required, we can hold containers plugged-in at inland depots, offer road and rail options with free time benefits and, most importantly, we can ensure vessel space protection and guaranteed weekly sailings.
On-time delivery is a priority for Prima Cheese. Time management planning onto vessels for specific arrival dates is planned, tracked and delivered to ensure buyers have the goods they require to operate their businesses.
Shared culture and ethos
Prima Cheese has a great team that is fully engaged in its business. Warrant Group is very proud to be an extension of their family and we were delighted when they received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Export in April 2020.
