Norbert Dentressangle, the leading European logistics and transport company, has secured a two-year contract extension with Emo Oil, which supplies a wide range of lubricants, and other products such as red diesel and kerosene.
As the UK market leader in its sector, Emo Oil operates throughout the UK selling Shell branded oil products to an expanding client base including automotive, commercial, industrial and agricultural customers.
The Transport Services division of Norbert Dentressangle provides a total supply chain solution, including storage and pick and pack from its warehouse facility in Northampton. Palletised orders are distributed through its shared-user operation, while a nominated parcel carrier ships small consignments.
Receipts and orders are pre-advised electronically via a direct Emo Oil interface with Norbert Dentressangle’s ULTIMA warehouse management system. All stock is managed on a first in first out (FIFO) basis. Around 12,500 next day deliveries are made a year to distribute over six million litres of oil products.
Mick Filaitis, Lubricant Distribution Manager at Emo Oil, said: "Centralising our warehousing and utilising Norbert Dentressangle’s transport network, rather than working with a pallet network group, has provided us with significant efficiencies and costs savings. Equally importantly, the streamlined operation has enhanced our national distribution service to all our customers."
Additional services include the despatch of packed fuels to companies using plant machinery and bulk deliveries of automotive engine oil, transported in IBCs (intermediate bulk containers) to garages and service stations – fully trained drivers decant the oil into customers’ storage facilities.
Returns management is also handled and Norbert Dentressangle has developed an integrated IT solution to enable delivery notes to be printed with the correct branding.
Emo Oil is able to easily track orders using Norbert Dentressangle’s bespoke SHARP (Shipment Handling and Reporting Program) technology. This enables the management team to accurately monitor deliveries across the shared-user network.
