Tibbett Logistics launches in Romania

Bucharest, Romania: Keswick Enterprises has launched Tibbett Logistics in Romania. Tibbett Logistics operates from nine distribution centres across Romania – providing over 100,000sq metres of warehousing in Bucharest, Constanta, Deva and Timisoara.

The move follows Keswick’s acquisition in December last year of Delamode Logistics and that company’s joint venture with DHL, DHL Delamode, from the shareholders of Delamode Group and DHL. These Romanian businesses have been renamed Tibbett Logistics and Tibbett Retail Services respectively – and together will trade as Tibbett Logistics.

Distribution operations include a nationwide domestic transport network, which last year transported over 60,000 vehicle loads in ambient, chilled and refrigerated environments. Tibbett Logistics runs 400 trailers – including double- and triple-temperature reefers.

John Harvey, the former chief executive of Tibbett & Britten went on to set up holding company Keswick Enterprises in 2004. The move followed Tibbett & Britten’s takeover by Exel (now DHL).
