Evolutionary merger between Mentfield UK Ltd and ICL Ltd announced

Global freight forwarder and logistics organisation Mentfield UK Ltd today announced that they have finalized a partnership agreement with the innovative logistics company ICL Ltd.

As a result of this partnership, Mentfield UK will adopt the ICL name and, going forward, trade as ICL UK.

This newly created partnership will be headquartered in London and operate from offices and warehouses in England and Scotland.

Mentfield UK Ltd has 18 international offices with an affiliate network in over 100 countries. It operates in a diverse range of industry sectors with an exceptionally strong presence in the perishable sector.

Leveraging of a combination of their own offices (in the US and Europe) and a large agent network, ICL Ltd provides a comprehensive suite of logistics services based on advanced logistics technology, firm financial efficiency and total global coverage.

“We want the customer to be able to concentrate on what they do best and let us do the rest”

“A customer centric culture is common between the two companies. We see this merger as an opportunity to offer a wider range of services to our customers” said Yoav Izhari, CEO of Mentfield UK. “With an emphasis on utilizing cutting-edge technology ICL Ltd is highly experienced in creating and implementing supply chain solutions. A key objective of the partnership is to combine these competences with our own so as to further enhance our abilities in specialized warehousing fulfilment and e-commerce services”.

While the entities have been in discussion for some time, the finalization of this partnership coincides with the introduction of new Brexit regulations, which came into effect on the 1st of January this year. These new regulations have created an opportunity for ICL UK to further demonstrate their proficiency in the perishable sector.

Yoav Izhari commented: “We can assist our customers in getting goods cleared faster with our highly skilled specialized staff and facilities at the port of Heathrow and in Spalding”.

Understandably proud, Yoav remarked: “With this partnership, the company will have a much wider reach and we can offer a more diverse product in more locations. Mentfield UK has been scaling up rapidly in the last couple of years with Brexit adding extra impetus to our growth. It was a perfect time to finalize our partnership with ICL”.

The greater logistics industry and its users still face numerous challenges relating to the efficiency of processes with regulatory authorities. ICL is investing substantial amounts of time and money into developing a technology platform aimed at making the customs clearance process a much smoother experience for the customers.

“We want the customer to be able to concentrate on what they do best and let us do the rest” concluded Yoav.
