Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli is consigning its German logistics operations with TNT Logistics.
The two companies have been working closely for the last fifteen years and the new contract is expected to run until the end of 2009.
Under the new agreement, TNT will manage the factory warehouse in Breuberg, near Odenwald as well as the national distribution centre in nearby Otzberg. TNT will assume responsibility for receiving and warehousing tyres from various international plants and preparing orders for
24-hour distribution throughout Germany.
TNT says that this service will also include order administration and tracking of shipments.
