DHL Supply Chain will run volumes for Inspired Pet Nutrition through its shared user network after winning a competitive tender.
The contract will be delivered through the DHL Consumer Network, its national network of shared user warehouse and transport services to FMCG companies.
DHL were originally appointed in 2019, and this new contract will build on the existing relationship.
David Proctor, group operations director at IPN , said: “The DHL team has already shown a ‘Can Do’, flexible attitude and approach. The tender and transition period were both managed extremely well and the level of service since launch has been strong. We are also benefiting from the scale and experience of the wider DHL organisation.”
The contract will involve the movement of 220,000 pallets annually to several UK retailers, as well as shunting activity at IPN’s site in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, which will operate two shift patterns, five days a week.
Ian Clough, MD, network logistics and transport, at DHL Supply Chain, added: “Our five-year contract extension represents a great vote of confidence in our offering.”
