DHL Supply Chain & National Grid
How do you achieve a zero Lost Time frequency Rate of 7,006 days, or 19 years?
You put the culture of health and safety at the heart of everything you do every day, proactively engage your colleagues and visitors to site, work collaboratively and openly together to strengthen existing best practices and behaviours to ensure the standards expected by both DHL Supply Chain and National Grid are met and sustained.
The judges said that this was a well embedded contract, “very well demonstrated”.
B&H Worldwide has used its specialist aerospace logistics capabilities to deliver a global solution for a major international airline that was undertaking a major refurbishment of its A380 fleet. Its specialist aerospace knowledge enabled it to leverage our industry knowledge and unique IT capabilities to deliver an on-time service in an environment where larger logistics providers could not deliver the flexibility and visibility the customer required to manage their aerospace specific project. Co-ordinating over all global vendors, B&H Worldwide delivered a seamless supply chain solution by acting as part of the airline’s global logistics team. This enabled their aircraft to get back in the air on time and on schedule.
