Nissan drives ahead with NYK deal


Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) has signed a contract with NYK Logistics to provide inbound logistics services at its factory in Sunderland.

NYK will support the production of the Micra, Note and Qashqai models and will be responsible for the delivery of nearly 800 different parts to the plant from 47 UK-based suppliers.

It is a highly time sensitive operation with Nissan holding minimal stock on site.

The operation is based at NYK’s strategic site in Castleford, with regional support from Avonmouth and Milton Keynes, as well as NYK’s shared user network.

Paul Maddison, GM NISA supply chain management, said: “Nissan recently conducted a tender for our UK logistic business. Through an intensive activity, NYK were successful in being awarded the contract. Implementation was concluded during April, with very successful results. Nissan is pleased to expand its logistic scope with NYK, developing future improvement activity plans for a successful business relationship moving forward”.
