Also...in February 2018, Import Services announced the Partnership with University Games, a relationship that has now culminated with the consolidation of University Games with sister company Paul Lamond’s logistics managed by Import Services.

“We are thrilled to have won the tender to consolidate University games’ group business based on our compelling port-centric logistics model which provides the optimum route to market for imported product to UK / Eire & Continental European customers.

“We’re delighted to be working with Import Services, having seen first-hand the advantages of their port-centric location and in-depth retail knowledge.”
