Norbert Dentressangle wins Carlsberg primary distribution contract

  • 22 November 2011

Norbert Dentressangle (ND) has been appointed Carlsberg UK’s primary logistics partner under a new five-year contract, following a “long and tough” competitive tendering process.

From February 2012, ND will take responsibility for the brewer’s UK primary distribution, which includes managing the flow of cans, bottles and kegs into and out of Carlsberg’s brewery in Northampton, as well as receiving, storing and inspecting empty kegs returning to the site’s container yard.

In addition, the logistics giant will manage Carlsberg’s Northampton NDC, plus the transportation of small pack products directly to retailers’ RDCs and kegged drinks into Carlsberg’s secondary distribution network.

Tanked beer for major events, such as music festivals, will also be delivered by ND.

Danish-owned Carlsberg UK will continue to distribute its own and third-party branded drinks to pub and free-trade customers through its own secondary on-trade distribution network.

David Hawkins, country procurement manager for Carlsberg UK, says: “Carlsberg is delighted to have secured the services of Norbert Dentressangle as our primary transport, NDC and brewery services provider. Their appointment follows a long and tough tendering process, in which they have shown themselves to be a dynamic partner with a collaborative approach to day-to-day business.”
