Paul Trudgian Ltd has been engaged by one of the leading providers worldwide of packaging solutions for food, life science and healthcare products to help them source, through a competitive tender, a logistics provider to meet their UK warehousing and transport requirements. This is a pre-tender notification for logistics providers to register their interest in receiving the full Invitation to Tender (ITT) which will be issued on Monday 4th March 2019.
Within the scope of the logistics contract will be the UK distribution of approximately 12,500 pallets per annum, against 2,800 customer orders being delivered to a customer base of around 150 delivery points. In addition to the transport, the provider will also need to provide suitable warehouse facilities to operate the receipt, handling, storage and despatch of the full pallets (no item picking required). The average inventory level will be in the region of 2,000 pallets.
It is expected that deliveries will be made on the selected providers own-fleet wherever possible in accordance with a fixed day delivery schedule (to be determined by the provider). Sub-contracting and pallet networks are feasible, providing they are supplementary to most deliveries being made on own-fleet.
There is no fixed requirement for the location of the warehouse and it is expected that the provider proposes a facility that enables an optimised balance between warehouse cost and outbound distribution cost. The deployment of multiple regional distribution sites is also acceptable along with a clear cost or service justification.
The client is seeking a single, lead provider for both warehousing and transport combined. The contract will be on a 3-year term with 15% year-on-year volume growth forecasted.
