Yamaha Music renews NYK contract

Yamaha Music UK has renewed its contract with NYK Logistics for the operation of its national distribution centre, handling musical instruments and audio visual equipment.

Yamaha supplies a wide range of musical instruments to music stars, as well the general public.

As part of its contract with Yamaha, NYK is responsible for the dispatch of the company’s full range of instruments, ranging from piccolos to grand pianos, as well as specialist equipment such as PA systems and mixing desks.

NYK receives orders by electronic data interchange with small items dispatched by a nominated parcel carrier. 

Dedicated vehicles deliver upright and grand pianos, which are transported on protective shoes then reassembled at dealers by trained delivery crews.

NYK reworks various mass-market products and handles promotions and exhibitions, as well as direct deliveries to schools across the UK.
