DHL Supply Chain has won a new three-year contract to manage the parts distribution and same day service warehousing for Toyota.
DHL will provide a range of aftermarket services for Toyota in the UK, including distribution of approximately 200,000 lines each year, as part of the new arrangement.
Deliveries will take place through the night using DHL’s aftermarket collaborative platform.
During the day, deliveries will be made using the same day service to all UK dealers, covering both the Toyota and Lexus brands – dealers receiving parts before 8am.
“Our new partnership with Toyota builds on our proven expertise in the UK automotive sector and supports the continued global growth of our customers,” said Martin Dougherty, vice president of business development, Aautomotive at DHL Supply Chain.
“As the automotive aftermarket grows more complex, so too do the logistics challenges involved. We are looking forward to working closely with Toyota to deliver innovation and increased efficiencies over the next three years.”
