NYK Logistics has been awarded a new two-year contract by Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) for inbound logistics services to its plant in Sunderland to support production of the Micra, Note and Qashqai. The contract was previously held by Ryder.
NYK will deliver nearly 800 different parts to the plant, from 47 UK based suppliers on a weekly basis, constituting 87 loads per week. Nissan holds minimum stock at the Sunderland site.
The inbound operation will be centred at NYK’s 29,000m2 distribution complex in Castleford, with regional support from Avonmouth and Milton Keynes.
Paul Maddison, GM NISA Supply Chain Management commented: "Implementation was concluded during April, with very successful results. Nissan is pleased to expand its logistic scope with NYK, developing future improvement activity plans for a successful business relationship moving forward".   
Steve Russell, Business Development Director for NYK Logistics (UK) added: “This is great news which builds on the quality of service that we have provided to Nissan in Eastern Europe. We look forward to a long term and successful future with Nissan.”
