As we reach the half way point of 2019, it makes me proud to see just how much the Tigers team has achieved this year.
This past quarter has seen the opening of our new Thurrock logistics facility near London Gateway in the United Kingdom with the creation of more than 50 jobs, and the announcement of an expanded partnership with the iconic cycling sportswear brand Rapha on both B2B and B2C fulfilment.
We officially announced our role as strategic logistics partner in China for K&N Filters, a high-performance automotive air filter and air filtration manufacturer, as they expand their operations in the world’s largest automotive market.
And, most recently, Shahar Ayash, our Managing Director – UK and Europe, joined a panel at Multimodal in Birmingham, UK, to discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by Brexit, where he talked about the benefits of SmartHub:Connect and how our technology can help to simplify the Brexit issue for customers trading in the UK and on the Continent.
Our technology group in South Africa continue to do an outstanding job supporting the Ubuntu Pathways Trust where they teach and train IT skills to under privileged children, while at our Riverside hub outside of Los Angeles, the team successfully raised funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. You make us proud!
As always, it has been a busy few months, and we look forward to bringing you more news about further growth as the year progresses.
