DHL wins multi-million pound contract with Hain Daniels

14 October 2013

DHL Supply Chain has won a multi-million pound contract with multiple category food manufacturer, Hain Daniels, whose brands include Hartleys, Robertsons, Sun Pat and Gales.

The deal that will run until 2017 sees the creation and implementation of a new supply chain network for the food manufacturer’s recently acquired ambient product range.

Commencing immediately, DHL will manage storage, handling, dispatch and customer deliveries from its multi-user distribution centre in Huntingdon.

Alex Tompkins, head of UK supply chain, Hain Daniels, said: “Having operated a principally chilled supply chain for many years, our decision to outsource the operation for ambient meant the development of an entirely new supply chain for the business. Delivering for customers is crucial to ensuring we remain competitive, so picking the right partner was important. DHL demonstrated exceptional expertise in the sector, flexibility in meeting our business needs and a readiness to do business with us – we’re delighted to be working together.”

David McDonald, vice president of Consumer, DHL supply chain, added: “Our multi-user capability at Huntingdon, combined with a cost effective solution and established consumer distribution network were significant in Hain Daniels’ decision to work with us. Through this new partnership, we will continue to grow our footprint in this sector, implementing further initiatives to streamline the operation and support Hain Daniels’ strategic growth.”
