Micro Direct goes with Amtrak

Supply lines

Micro Direct, the Manchester based PC components retailer, has appointed Amtrak as its exclusive deliver contractor. The deal, over an unspecified period, is said to be worth millions of pounds.

Micro Direct has not revealed which couriers it is kicking out - Amtrak is an existing partner, having worked with the reseller for eight years already. Amtrak expects to shift up to 1500 consignments a night from Micro Direct. ®
