Bibendum PLB Group has extended its contract with DHL’s Tradeteam business for ten years. Tradeteam will manage the warehousing and distribution of wine, spirits, beers and soft drinks to all of Bibendum’s on-trade and wholesale customers in England, Wales and Scotland.
The deal provides access to a shared-user large pack delivery network which is a key growth area for composite drinks deliveries. DHL will also be providing replenishment services as well as customer services.
It includes investment in new technology to enable real time order status tracking. New warehouse space will be sought to drive efficiency across the expanding operation.
Michael Saunders, chief executive of Bibendum PLB, said: “Over the last five years, our relationship with Tradeteam has substantially evolved as the service we provide our customers has become more complex. We have worked hard, leading to this new agreement, to ensure we are very well placed for the foreseeable future. Together Bibendum PLB Group and Tradeteam are now brilliantly placed to respond to market opportunities and demands.”
