Tata Tea has selected DSC Logistics as its US distribution partner.

DSC is an integrated logistics and supply chain management company headquartered in Illinois. 

"Tata Tea group is a recognised global company that is extremely capable of achieving their growth strategy here in the US," said Ann Drake, DSC's CEO.

Chris Robinson, Tata Tea group's US global logistics manager, said: "DSC was awarded the Tata Tea group business for a number of reasons: their level of commitment, enthusiasm, professionalism, their consolidation programme and design work, which proved to us that DSC sees themselves as a long-term partner."

Last month, India-based Tata Tea said that it would take on soft drinks like Coca-Cola Co and PepsiCo in a global push on ready-to-drink beverages.
