BMW has signed a six-year contract with Swedish transport and logistics provider Danx for overnight delivery of spare parts to 300 dealers in seven Nordic and Baltic countries.
From this month, deliveries will be carried out from Danx’s distribution centre in Malmö, Sweden to that country as well as to Norway, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Danx said the parts would primarily be delivered through its high-speed road network but that it would also handle air freight deliveries from Malmö to the north of Sweden and Norway and the Baltics, as well as to Finland, within a 12-hour delivery window.
“We were, in many ways, a perfect match,” said Danx’s group director, Bob Thorhauge. “The scope of the contract is the seven countries where Danx has its own distribution network, enabling us to do pre-7.00am deliveries. Most importantly, BMW is a high-end brand focusing on quality and fast deliveries, which perfectly reflects our position in the logistics market.”
Danx has 26 locations across the seven countries covered. Among its other OEM customers are Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Hyundai-Kia, Daimler and Honda.
