The papermaking and specialist coating group Tullis Russell has awarded DSV Road a five year contract to handle all warehousing and logistics requirements for its Glenrothes mill in Scotland.
DSV Road is already a key freight forwarding supplier to Tullis Russell, handling many of the company’s shipments to customers in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Tullis Russell was previously handling the operation via its own warehouse in nearby Southfield but decided to outsource the work after a full internal review prompted by the end of the warehouse lease.
Tullis Russell Group CEO Chris Parr says: “As an employee owned business, this was not a decision we took lightly. The move was vitally important to us and it was critical that we partnered with the right logistics company. We are delighted to be working with DSV Road and look forward to working as partners together to deliver real improvements to our logistics operations and ultimately our customer service levels”
DSV Road UK Managing Director Jesper Hansen says: “Tullis Russell is a long-standing customer and business partner of DSV Road. We are very pleased that they recognise the value of a long-term business relationship with us.
“We view the expansion of the relationship as a positive endorsement for our company and we will continue delivering excellent levels of customer service. We look forward to implementing the new transport and logistics solution over the next few months.”
