Mazda Motors' UK arm has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to manage its distribution for three years, autoaccessorynews.com reports.
The contract will see Norbert Dentressangle collect goods from Mazda UK's parts distribution centre in Kent and deliver them to locations all around the UK overnight. The haulage firm was chosen for its ability to be able to deliver parts to up to 170 dealers a night using its shared network.
The news could see Norbert Dentressangle hiring drivers to help manage the extra workload taken on with the gaining of the contract.
Under the contract, Norbert Dentressangle will be tasked with delivering up to 3,200 items overnight, from smaller parcels to full roll cages and large-scale cartons. All of this is set to reach its destination before 8:00 the morning after dispatch.
Norbert Dentressangle was also granted the contract for being able to offer reduced vehicle mileage and CO2 emissions, as well as the flexibility of night-time haulage.
Speaking to mhwmagazine.com of the deal, Mazda's Parts and Accessories sales manager David Elphick explained: "The execution of the implementation process was very challenging in such a short timescale.
"With Norbert Dentressangle's automotive night network we can react quickly to orders of any size from our dealers. The parts are guaranteed to reach dealerships before 8:00am the next day, which enables them to deliver a high level of customer service to their customers."
