Davies & Robson has carried out a transport strategy review and tender process for Toyota Material Handling UK.
A central transport hub has been established and the number of night trunks has been increased in order to support the planned growth of the business by offering customers a more efficient, technically innovative and cost effective service.
Alongside this process, Davies & Robson also prepared and ran an invitation to tender for the transport contract, which led to the appointment of Norbert Dentressangle Logistics UK.
Davies & Robson was originally appointed by BT Rolatruc, which merged with Toyota Industrial Equipment in 2007 before forming TMHUK.
Following the merger Davies & Robson’s brief was extended to include the retendering of the transport contract to serve the wider organisation and to identify and achieve cost and service benefits.[asset_ref id=”550″]
Steve Hodkinson, deputy managing director of TMHUK (pictured), said: “With the growth planned for TMHUK it was vital to ensure we had a transport partner which understood our business and which could work with is to deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction within a cost-effective solution.
“Davies & Robson’s contribution throughout the whole process, from creation of the ITT to final selection of the logistics partner, was very professional and added value at each stage.”
