Norbert Dentressangle wins Honda renewal

  • 27 February 2012
  • By Hayley Pink

Norbert Dentressangle (ND) has secured a three-year contract renewal to provide warehousing and distribution for Honda Trading Europe, a subsidiary of the Japanese car giant created to import parts from the Far East to the UK.

The deal will see ND transport some 600 containers per year from Southampton into a dedicated 78,000ft² warehouse in Swindon, Wilts, less than a mile from the Honda car plant.

It will also include just-in-time delivery of parts to the production line and to the car manufacturer’s on-site sequencing centre, which feeds the main car plant, as well as the national distribution of sub-assembly components to around 40 UK suppliers.

ND says it won the contract renewal thanks to its 100% auditing record, as well as its ability to work with Honda in mitigating the effects on the business of the economic downturn, the Japanese tsunami and the floods in Thailand.

Reuben Chorley, department manager UK Parts Division, Honda Trading Europe, says: “ND have continued to support our business throughout the difficult production periods we have faced over the past two years and have proven themselves as a valuable partner.”
