Weetabix is outsourcing its UK logistics for the first time after signing a five-year contract worth £60 million with TDG.
TDG will be responsible for Weetabix’s 350,000 sq ft warehouse operations at Burton Latimer and movements between its manufacturing sites at Corby and Ashton.
Additionally, TDG will manage all inbound and outbound transport, using a combination of its high cube network, vehicles transferred from Weetabix, along with 16 new MAN vehicles and 47 high cube trailers.
TDG’s business director Mick Wilson said: “This is the first time Weetabix has outsourced its UK logistics, and we are confident that the transfer of these complex operations will be seamless.
“There is a great cultural fit between our two businesses, and we are looking forward to developing further our strong relationship built over the past few months.”
