Hobart has put pen to paper on a three-year contract renewal with its long-term UK logistics provider Norbert Dentressangle.
The deal, which is worth £1m, will see Norbert Dentressangle continue to deliver Hobart kit to professional kitchens, retailer’s shops and supermarkets, restaurants and pub chains.
The service includes the daily collection of product from Hobart’s national distribution centre in Peterborough, twice weekly trailer movements between the UK manufacturing plant in Barnstaple and Peterborough, shipments to Ireland, as well as deliveries of spare parts and cleaning fluid.
Norbert Dentressangle has been working with Hobart for the past 14 years. Last year it delivered a total of 9,715 Hobart consignments, amounting to nearly 14,300 pallet equivalents. Around 35% of all jobs were time specific installations.
“After another successful three years, with Norbert Dentressangle delivering an excellent service, I was happy to renew the contract for a further three year period,” stated David Riley, director of warewash UK at Hobart. “Norbert Dentressangle and Hobart have demonstrated to customers in a range of markets how effectively we can work together as a team to meet their highly individual requirements.”
Norbert Dentressangle, which employes almost 13,000 employees across the UK, manages the Hobart contract through its Specialist Services division, which is focused on the transport of high value and heavy equipment.
The unit provides highly customised delivery solutions in addition to a standard two man ‘unpack and position’ service, ensuring products are handled by highly trained operatives throughout the distribution process.
