Oakland International’s joint managing director, Mark Caffrey, said it is “Great news for the business and positive testament to the hard work and business success our young team has achieved in three years of trading since our May 2009 launch.”

Oakland’s UK and Ireland consolidation schemes deliver cost advantages for suppliers wishing to deal with retailers direct in each country using a ‘local’ solution, where service, flexibility and reactivity ensure the best possible supplier service levels are achieved for their customers, he says.
