Manchester Airports extends Norbert contract

Manchester Airport Group has extended its contract with Norbert Dentressengle.

MAG originally outsourced its logistics to Dentressangle in 2006. Following a period of volume growth the group recently moved to a larger facility, which opened on 5th March.

Dentressangle now consolidates deliveries from more than 20 retailers and caterers at its offsite warehouse.

All goods are security screened using x-ray machines, which have been installed at the new site. Once security checked goods are then delivered directly to the retailers or to a secure storage area by security cleared drivers.

Andrew Harrison, Manchester Airport’s commercial director, said: “The move from the Bury site was seamless, and a great credit to the planning and operational ability of Peter Leigh Contract Manager and his team. We are thrilled with the new consolidation centre, which represents a real step forward, in our partnership with Norbert Dentressangle and we’re looking forward to driving the volumes through the new centre in line with our strategy.”
