Daimler renews contract with Rhenus Logistics UK
Automotive manufacturer Daimler has awarded freight forwarding specialist Rhenus Logistics UK a five-year contract renewal. The continued partnership will service 67 collection points across the UK and Ireland, delivering automotive parts to 40 production destinations in Germany.
Daimler has worked with Rhenus UK since October 2010. The freight forwarder provides a total logistics solution including full reverse delivery for OE manufacturers across the UK and Ireland. Daimler has worked with Rhenus in Germany for 30 years.
Rhenus manages the logistics service for the automotive manufacturer from its centrally located Automotive Competence Centre (ACC) in Cannock, UK.
Darren Cater, who heads up the ACC, commented: “We manage the service from our Cannock facility which allows us to use our team of experienced automotive logistics specialists to ensure all elements of the supply chain run efficiently. We use three facilities in Bradford, Basildon and Dublin to service the North, South and Ireland. All goods are then trunked to Cannock and transported via a complete round-trip service using our dedicated fleet of 20 truck trailers to Germany. Plus, all packaging is then redelivered to suppliers for re-use, saving both time and money.”
