Hankook Tyres’ UK has awarded DHL Supply Chain a three year contract extension to manage its warehousing operations.

DHL was first awarded the contract to distribute Hankook’s tyres UK-wide through its collaborative tyre network in 2008.

Under the deal DHL has responsibility for the receipt, check and stock replenishment of inbound tyre deliveries, plus picking for next day distribution from the South Korean manufacturer’s facilities in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

In response to growing demand, Hankook has had to re-engineer its supply chain operations, and agreed a lease for an additional 140,000 sq ft of warehousing space.

DHL has worked with Hankook to develop training, process design and operational changes.

Tony Lee, managing director at Hankook, said: “DHL has always provided a good distribution service for Hankook – something that we wanted to maintain and improve as our facilities expanded.”
