Our grower group has just completed a very successful first season working with IPL. From the start of the relationship great emphasis was put on communication and ensuring that we understood each other’s need. The IPL team visited farms and packhouses and got a solid understanding of our business. We were given a detailed programme that gave us security in a challenging marketplace and volumes supplied were very much in-line with the programme. A particular benefit of working with IPL is that we found that the team, unlike some other customers, were willing to have conversations with us through the season to make tweaks that maximise crop utilisation and deliver solid returns.
The relationship has run very smoothly which is with credit to the team at IPL and we look forward to growing with them.
Belco and International Procurement & Logistics Ltd (IPL) have a long-standing partnering relationship that is associated with many successes and achievements. We value the support and professionalism that IPL continues to provide to ourselves as well as to the retail business.
Director, Juan Rubert SA
As a fourth generation of Spanish citrus exporters, our experience in working with IPL/ASDA has been one of the nicest and most challenging in recent years, firstly because they make you feel two way business and you feel it is thanks to their highly qualified professional team and secondly and more important is that every decision taken by the team is always made (for the good of customers) thinking the best for customers.
Area Manager, Alegra
Alegra is proud of the partnership that was created with the IPL in recent years. Thanks to the willingness to discuss, tackle and solve problems that can be created, to allow planning time for shipment, enables us to provide better service and working with higher quality.
Their present and continued interest on the quality and freshness of products intended for themselves, their enthusiasm and determination that the IPL has in its employees are engaging the supply chain from producers to begin.
Charles J Hughes
Managing Director, Tru-Cape
Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing (PTY) Ltd has been a supplier to International Procurement & Logistics Ltd Ltd, who is the produce supply company to Asda UK since its inception.
During this time we have experienced exceptional service levels in respect of the quality inspection of arrivals, distribution effectiveness and a management team who are committed to our mutual success.
One of the key result areas is this company’s ability and understanding of cost management to ensure Asda remain competitive, whilst ensuring that our Shareholder Growers earn high values at farm level.
In terms of the overall management structure of International Procurement & Logistics Ltd Ltd, we have at all times had easy access to all levels and have found their professionalism to be of the highest order.
It is our uncompromised opinion that we are an effective part of the team philosophy and long term strategic planning.
We would strongly recommend any existing or new supplier utilize the services of IP as their key receiver of their products, knowing that they have the best interests of their suppliers’ well being at heart.
