UK Company to supply 800 Containers worth £4.5 Million

February 13, 2011

Well dear readers, for the UK so desperately trying to win exports, here’s a bit of good news:

London-based Container Express Ltd. plans to supply 800 universal containers to the Lisky state transport service center (Kyiv), which is part of state railways administration Ukrzaliznytsia.

According to a report in the state procurements disclosure system, the proposal of the British supplier was accepted on January 26, 2011.

The contract, which is worth UAH 47.82 million, is to be signed by February 25, 2011.

The Lisky center provides transport and warehouse logistics services using its own facilities and transport. In particular, the center delivers cargo door-to-door, and transports cargo in special and universal containers by sea, rail and road.

Always interested in the UK PLC doing well in Ukraine, a quick look on Company’s House was in order regarding Container Express Ltd:

For some reason, I am afraid to spend £1.00……as I’m fairly certain I may feel rather deflated by what I find…..and that is it that it is a UK Ltd company in name only with far more Ukrainian connotations than first appears……so I will prefer to sit in my ignorance and think to myself well done UK PLC.

Now, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, instead of clicking my heels and repeating “There’s no place like home”, I will sit here clicking my heels repeating “I hope I am wrong”.
