Meet the speakers

Here at the International Cheese & Dairy Expo headquarters, we are busy, pulling together the speakers for the seminar, setting up trade stands for the exhibitors, and getting everything organised for 27 June. I look forward to seeing everyone in one place, all discussing and showcasing the dairy industry we all know and love.

One of our key speakers and exhibitors is DFDS, which is a leading European transport and logistics company, serving customers across Europe and Turkey. “We move goods in trailers by ferry, road, and rail, across 66 logistics locations and employ more than 13,200 people,” says Tom Jackaman, DFDS Logistics business development manager.

“DFDS Logistics offers a full-service package, including contract logistics, cold-chain transport and warehousing as well as full load, part load and groupage services, with cross-docking, blast freezing and up tempering,” he continues. “In addition, we provide customs clearance services and Port Health (SIVEP) processing; validating CHEDs and paying port taxes, to ensure the smooth flow of goods at the border.

“Specifically for UK exporters of chilled dairy products, DFDS operates three times (3x) groupage departures per week and multiple daily trailers for FTL and PTL shipments. Using our knowledge and expertise in shipping Products of Animal Origin (POAO), DFDS provides a hassle-free, in-house process from departure to delivery.

“Moving goods and people by land and sea leaves a large carbon footprint. It is therefore our responsibility to review our impact on the environment and to secure a more sustainable future for the generations to come. In Logistics, our 2030 greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target is a 75% reduction in GHG intensity from road transport, terminals and warehousing. Various initiatives are underway to help us achieve this goal, not least the deployment of 125 Electrical Volvo Trucks, making it one of Europe’s largest heavy-duty electric truck fleets.”

Don’t miss the DFDS presentation at 11:30 on 27 June at the International Cheese & Dairy Expo stage, which is being sponsored by AB Dairy. Along with MADCAP, Wafilin, Lyras (Sycamore Process Engineering), Amcor, Bord Bia, Meurens, Masterpack, Ecolab, Infor, Kendamil and Novonesis (formerly Chr Hansen), it will be an informative day at the Expo.
