Bidvest 3663 extends contract with ACS&T to 2022

Foodservice wholesaler Bidvest 3663 has renewed its multi-million pound contract with ACS&T, extending the relationship to 2022.

Bidvest 366 supplies more than 60,000 hospitality industry customers in the UK.

Under the national consolidation scheme, ACS&T provides a shared user platform which is used by 130 of Bidvest 3663’s customers.

Supplier products arrive into ACS&T’s Wolverhampton shared-user storage facility and become immediately visible to the Bidvest 3663 depots and suppliers via a real-time web-based stock management system.

Benefits for suppliers include shared-user collection, vendor-managed inventory and warehousing services, with proportional pallet charging for delivery to the Bidvest 3663 estate.

Jim Gouldie, director of supply chain at Bidvest 3663, said: “We have been working in partnership with ACS&T for many years now and have the upmost confidence in their expertise. They are an integral part of our supply chain and we look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship well into the future.”

Mike Rice, business development director at ACS&T, said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our 20-year working relationship with Bidvest 3663 and such a significant long-term deal reflects the high levels of service we provide for both Bidvest 3663 and the supplier base.”
