Logistics Manager--Diesel engine manufacturer Perkins has renewed its logistics contract with DHL Supply Chain for two years.

DHL will collect parts from Perkins' UK suppliers and deliver into its UK factories.

Perkins sources parts from more than 140 UK suppliers to produce a range of engines for heavy construction, agricultural, marine and material handling products. DHL will make around 500 collections a week from the suppliers and deliver to Perkins' factories in Peterborough and Stafford.

As part of the deal, DHL will continue trunking finished engines from the Peterborough factory to a local external storage warehouse.
