Nisa Retail has announced that it has signed a contract extension with DHL, the world’s leading logistics services provider, until 2023 to continue to deliver goods across three temperature regimes to over 1,400 of its partners.
Under the agreement DHL will continue to provide warehousing, transport, facilities and ancillary services for Nisa throughout the UK.
This contract extension, which reflects the renewal of the existing long-term agreement, dating back to 2009, allows the continuation of the DHL & Nisa partnership. The deal will see DHL continue its work with Nisa to help develop the business’s transport planning system with a focus on increasing delivery efficiency while reducing mileage, carbon emissions and reviewing any further collaboration opportunities.
“Nisa has enjoyed a great relationship with DHL and have been supported exceptionally well through the ongoing COVID-19 crisis,” said Kerinne Oliver, Nisa’s head of logistics.
“The extension of the contract with a partner of DHL’s scale will help support Nisa in developing its routes and supply chain whilst allowing us to increase our supplied network of partners.”
Jim Hartshorne, MD, Retail and Consumer, DHL Supply Chain added: “This renewal is a fantastic result for DHL and all the team on the NISA account who have worked tirelessly over the whole term of the last agreement to demonstrate the strength of our partnership.
“That partnership has been confirmed during the COVID-19 crisis but is deeper and will last longer than these difficult times.
“We have lots to do on the next stage of our partnership and we are all looking forward to supporting NISA deliver excellent service for all their partners in the coming years.”
As its support through the recent peak of the COVID crisis proved, DHL’s strengths in supply chain operations will help Nisa grow sales and increase profits for partners in a competitive market.
