Contract win for DHL

DHL Exel Supply Chain has been awarded a contract to handle the delivery of “The OWL” wireless electricity monitors by UK business 2 Save Energy. The agreement will see DHL managing the whole logistics process, delivering the devices from the Far East to the UK consumer’s door.
The wireless electricity monitor shows households the cost of electricity used in the home, as well as their greenhouse gas emissions, on a portable LED display and, it is claimed, could help households reduce their energy bills and carbon emissions by 15 per cent. DHL collects devices from 2 Save Energy’s manufacturing partner in mainland China and moves them to its UK-based distribution centre before arranging for final delivery.
DHL interfaces directly with 2 Save Energy’s website, processing individual orders and arranging delivery of up to two million energy monitors to customers each year. This makes the monitoring, control of stock levels and visibility of the entire supply chain crucial factors in the success of the operation. In essence, DHL has created a tailored and comprehensive end to end service, managing the supply chain for 2 Save Energy and allowing the company to focus on its core strength – developing energy saving technology.
