Food retailer Aldi has signed a five-year contract with Dachser that will see the 3PL provide a warehouse platform as well as UK & Ireland distribution services for a wide range of Aldi’s products.
Dachser has taken on a new warehouse on a 10-year lease. The warehouse is adjacent to its existing logistics centre in Brackmills business park, Northampton and will provide the additional capacity needed to accommodate a combined platform operation for Aldi’s alcohol and general ambient products.
Aldi and Dachser have worked together for over 25 years. “We have been very pleased with Dachser’s high level of commitment to our mutual partnership in the UK,” said Aldi’s managing director of corporate logistics Fritz Walleczek, “and are delighted that we are now able to build on this further through the securing of a long-term contract”.
