Davies to introduce high-spec hanging garment trailers in Morocco

May '07
Davies Turner is bucking a recent trend that has seen a number of large trailer operators on the UK - Morocco route cut back their services, and is instead committing increased investment to the Moroccan market, including a new fleet of high specification hanging garment trailers and more frequent departures.

This is most timely now that there is a significant revival of the garment trade with Morocco after the disruption caused over the last few years since the MFA (Multi Fibre Agreement) ended, when manufacturing in North Africa initially failed to match increased competition from the Far East.

In order to capitalise on opportunities in the trade between the UK, Ireland and Morocco, Davies Turner has also financed the establishment of DTCO Maroc, based in Tangier, which started trading in early December 2006. Morocco is a complex market and this decision has been carefully prepared and carried through with local participation.

Philip Stephenson, Joint Managing Director of Davies Turner comments: "Despite the problems other operators have experienced in this market, Davies Turner has a firm belief in business development prospects between the UK, Ireland and North Africa. Historically, the trade has been heavily dependent on CMT shipments of fabric, trim and accessories southbound, and finished garments northbound. So it is very pleasing to see examples of sourcing and production, which moved away from Morocco, principally to China, now returning to the country".
