With an extensive network of depots across Ireland including 450 delivery drivers, Nightline will provide access to these to ITG in a plan to distribute their products to more than 3,500 retailers across Ireland.
“Nightline’s unrivaled reach, with premium branded vehicle presence and trained uniformed drivers on the streets of every town and village in Ireland, helps give our clients a strong advantage over their competitors,” commented John Tuohy, CEO of Nightline. “We are delighted that John Player has selected us to continue providing consistently high quality logistics and distribution for their products throughout the Republic of Ireland.”
Imperial Tobacco is the world’s fourth-largest international cigarette company (by market share), with 51 factories worldwide, manufacturing 320 billion cigarettes per year to be sold in over 160 countries.
“At John Player we ensure that our adult consumer is at the core of every decision that we make,” said Morgan Lee, National Accounts Manager with John Player. “The key to each consumer’s need is availability of our products. I look forward to continuing our partnership with Nightline while also maintaining our consistently high standard of service to our customers.”
