    25 November 2014 - TNT was recognised at the Supply Chain Global Awards ceremony as winner of the Aftermarket Parts Logistics category on 13 November in London. The Supply Chain Global Awards celebrate outstanding contributions to the supply chain and logistics sector in the global automotive industry.

    TNT has provided aftermarket parts logistics services to the automotive industry for more than 25 years and is strengthening its focus on key industries, including automotive, in line with the company’s strategy. TNT was selected for the Aftermarket Parts Logistics award due to its consistent customer focus and firm commitment to help customers reduce costs and eliminate waste from their supply chains. During the ceremony, the judges noted that customers value the expertise and support TNT offers in analysing the impact of changes to their supply chains.

    TNT was also recognised by the judges for providing fast road transit times across Europe, appreciated by both dealers and customers in the automotive sector. TNT ships parts directly from auto manufacturers’ central European warehouses to country dealerships, reducing the levels of inventory needed close to market. TNT also provides extensive geographic coverage throughout Europe for aftermarket services, without the need for caging during transport, thereby improving use of capacity and reducing costs for customers.

    The annual Automotive Supply Chain Global Awards are hosted by Three Six Zero, publishers of the Automotive Supply Chain magazine. The sixteen award categories cover every major supply chain activity linked with the automotive industry. The award winners are selected by an independent panel of peer judges for their outstanding contributions to the automotive supply chain industry within their respective sectors.

    TNT Express expands key London operating centre


    January 9, 2014 -
    Businesses across London are set to benefit after TNT Express, the UK’s leading express delivery company, completed a £4.3m expansion of its Park Royal depot, near Wembley.

    The development means capacity at the depot, which already handles nearly 40,000 items per week on behalf of local businesses, will increase by over 50%.

    Installing 15 extra loading bays and over 1200 sq metres of warehouse and vehicle yard space will mean the depot can not only operate more efficiently and process customers’ consignments more quickly, but with more regional services routed to the depot the overall carbon footprint of TNT Express’ fleet will also be reduced.

    Alistair Cochrane, Managing Director of TNT Express UK & Ireland said: "This expansion demonstrates our on-going commitment to investing in our infrastructure in order to deliver direct benefits to our customers via more responsive and efficient services."
