A brace of deals for TNT

Drinks business Twinings has contracted TNT Network Logistics to distribute Ovaltine products through its nationwide shared-user network.

Twinings, which took over Ovaltine late last year, has been a TNT Logistics customer for the past 13 years. It has now added the Ovaltine warehousing and distribution contract, involving two million cases a year, to the volumes that TNT Network Logistics already handles for Twinings.

The deal involves the annual storage and distribution of more than nine million cases of tea and Ovaltine/Options to supermarkets and wholesalers as well as to food service outlets, such as restaurants. Twinings stock is delivered on pallets from factories in Newcastle and Andover into the TNT Network Logistics hub at Wellesbourne, whereas the Ovaltine product is produced in both the UK and Switzerland.

? SIL brand gift and housewares importer and distributor Sifcon International has renewed its contract with TNT Network Logistics. The latest deal includes a 30% increase in warehouse space, giving SIL a base of 11,346sq m at TNT’s Mendlesham site.
