Following an initial 12 month agreement, the Co-operative Group has awarded Norbert Dentressangle a three year contract to handle its UK tray washing operations, for its own fleet of maxi-nest trays, building on the successful partnership between the two companies.
In a collaborative arrangement with other Norbert Dentressangle customers, around 36 million Co-operative Group trays are processed each year, primarily through existing tray wash centres operated by Norbert Dentressangle, allowing all parties to benefit from operational synergies and efficiencies.
Using its bespoke asset management technology solution and sector know-how, Norbert Dentressangle’s solution provides complete visibility of assets in the supply chain in order to reduce losses and maximise asset yield.
Norbert Dentressangle is also working with The Co-operative Group to develop further added value services including lost asset recovery, asset repair and to examine potential European asset supply options.
The logistics firm is also responsible for the management of the transport operations at The Co-operative Group’s distribution centres in Andover and Avonmouth.
