Honda UK has extended its inbound distributioncontract with Yusen Logistics, to support the Swindon-based production of the Honda Civic, CRV, and Jazz models.
The two companies began their partnership in 2006, when Honda appointed Yusen to convert its UK suppliers from delivers to ex-works. In 2011 Yusen was then named Honda’s sole provider for UK inbound collections.
Yusen now manages some 100 daily routes and collections from 60 vendors around the UK for Honda.
Its service offers off-the-shelf technologies, which the company says interact seamlessly to deliver a dependable and functional product that supports Honda’s inbound material flows.
“Over previous years Yusen Logistics has been instrumental in delivering an industry-leading inbound logistics solution – delivering operational spend savings by embracing a Kaizen partnership and minimising Honda of the UK Manufacturing exposure to high fleet costs and delays within the operation,” said a Honda spokesperson.
