Supply Chain: Cory Brothers

Cory Bros opens in Glasgow and Manchester 1The new offices are based at Linwood in Glasgow (team pictured here) and Exchange Quay in Manchester (team pictured in main photo above), and are headed up by Senior Manager and Associate Director, Andy Irvine, a veteran logistics professional with 32 years of experience.

The teams are providing freight forwarding services on all modes and all international trade lanes.

Why Glasgow and Manchester?

Glasgow and Manchester are key areas for the logistics industry and are perfectly situated for supply chain connectivity, as well as being home to many businesses that require our services.

Glasgow is of significant historic and strategic value to us. Scotland is a dynamic and forward-thinking country for business and is home to many of our customers, suppliers, and network partners. And Manchester is also of vital strategic importance. It exports around £6.6 billion worth of goods annually and is a central hub location for the north. With excellent connectivity for air, road and sea, it is a key location for our development plans.

The migration into the Cory family has been a smooth one. The teams at both offices possess over 100 years combined experience and having worked together for a different company for over 15 years, they possess vast experience in providing total supply chain solutions, specialising in sectors that include: industrial, aerospace, perishables, automotive, retail, technology and life sciences. They also provide supply chain reviews, warehousing and customs clearance services.

“Both new offices in Glasgow and Manchester are excellent additions to the group and underline our ambitious development plans. I am personally delighted that Andy, Susan, Kerry and their talented team share the same ambitions, values and aspirations as myself and the Cory Team.”
Peter Wilson, Group Managing Director

Complementing the existing UK offices

The new offices and their teams’ additional knowledge and networks will complement our existing UK offices in Ipswich, Basildon, Southampton, Bristol, Milford Haven, Cardiff, Liverpool, Grangemouth, Tees, Hull and throughout the VertomCory Group in Europe.

We’re delighted to have hit the ground running at both locations.
