About us TRANSFORMING SUPPLY CHAINS At Gist, we pride ourselves in working with our customers to deliver innovative solutions and transform supply chains, with a proven track record spanning more than 50 years. Deploying industry-leading expertise in global supply chains, we create competitive advantage for our customers by bringing end-to-end visibility and implementation, along with environmental benefits. Our vision is to be our customers’ first choice for logistics, innovation, excellence and partnership. Gist’s unique proposition lies in successfully integrating Temperature Controlled Logistics and Contract Logistics for retailers and their supply chains – servicing both Retail Park and convenience store locations with the same fleet. Our ability and expertise in assimilating upstream and downstream supply chains, as well as planning multi-customer transport networks, keeps us and our customers ahead of the market. At Gist we are constantly evolving and responding to the ever-changing food retail landscape. We combine our experience, intellectual knowledge, national coverage and the largest chilled transport fleet in the UK. This winning combination results in Gist reducing food miles, limiting empty runs and therefore improving costs and fuel efficiency for customers every day. Gist invests in the best people, who are passionate about achieving the best for our customers, giving market-leading solutions over a contract’s life. Gist’s flexible and commercial approach has created solutions that are innovative, practical and operationally deliverable. Gist is different - we want to spend time understanding our customers’ individual challenges and the details of their supply chains. We can then work in partnership to achieve the optimum end result. Our reach extends globally. Through our control tower and centre of excellence, Gist brings technology and freight professionals together. Our capability provides customers with the best possible end-to-end managed supply chains for the movement of chilled, perishable, ambient and hazardous products by air, sea and land.
