TNT Logistics wins £21m renewal

Nissan Renault Alliance has renewed its UK distribution contract worth in excess of £21m with TNT Logistics.

The renewed three year operation, involves delivering vehicle parts from a single national parts distribution centre at Lutterworth, Leicestershire, delivering through the night to over 400 Nissan and Renault dealerships, five nights a week. Howard Wilkinson, head of Nissan Renault Alliance After-Sales Logistics Operations in the UK said: “TNT Logistics continually challenges the way we work to improve the service to our customers.”

Neil Crossthwaite, managing director of TNT Logistics was delighted with the renewal and says: “Over the last 14 years we have worked closely together managing a number of strategic changes, including the integration of Nissan and Renault parts distribution. We are now looking forward to continuing this relationship, maintaining service excellence and implementing continuous improvement initiatives.”

IT enhancement was a key factor in the renewal of the contract and as well as investment in IT systems, TNT has spent out on a new vehicle fleet consisting of a combination of rigid and articulated vehicles.

TNT Logistics began delivering for Nissan in 1992, taking weekly stock deliveries into dealerships.
