TDG is to provide transport to around 200 Oddbins and Nicolas retail outlets in the UK. The £5m, three year contract will see transport move to TDG’s site in West Hallam, Derbyshire.
“We recognised the need for a national approach to transport, and felt that TDG’s flexibility and strong management team would best meet our requirements,” said Bob Smyllie operations director for Oddbins.
The contract is due to start in mid April, and will use 12, 18-tonne rigid vehicles to make deliveries to around 200 branches across the UK.
TDG will also be collecting cardboard waste from stores and returning it to the West Hallam depot for recycling. This process was previously outsourced. “We are continually looking for ways to make the supply chain more efficient for customers,” says TDG’s retail business director, Barrie Brackstone.
