DHL Supply Chain has landed a new five-year contract with Warburtons, to oversee the logistics of its daily deliveries.
As Warburtons’ lead logistics provider it will implement a “control tower operation” to manage the bakery firm’s primary logistics.
DHL said it would aim to facilitate increased visibility across the supply chain and drive efficiency - both environmental and operational. One of its goals is to reduce the annual mileage of Warburtons delivery fleet by two million miles.
The logistics firm will oversee the primary transport of up to two million bread loaves, rolls, crumpets and other bakery products daily between Warburtons’ 12 bakeries and 13 depots across the UK.
