We have been engaged by a well-known UK retail brand to tender their UK transport operations for store deliveries from their National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
The requirement is to collect predominantly palletised product from the Rotherham NDC and deliver to the company’s estate of 200+ retail stores.
Stores are serviced with a frequency of either 5 days, 3 days or 2 days per week with a current schedule mainly focussed on day-time deliveries. The annual delivery volume is in the region of 70,000 pallets.
In terms of seasonality peak season is September to November, with November being the highest volume month of typically ~7,000 pallets. Other months are relatively stable with expected volumes in the region of 5,000 pallets.
This is a great opportunity to work with a well-known UK retail brand. The Invitation to Tender will be issued on Monday 4th July 2016 with responses due by Wednesday 3rd August 2016. Presentations from preferred providers will be scheduled during the first 2-weeks of September 2016.
If you are interested in tendering for this opportunity, please provide your company and contact details through our contacts page with the reference ‘UK Retail Contract’.
Once we have your details we will contact you with a Non-Disclosure Agreement prior to discussing the client requirements further and issuing the Invitation to Tender.
