In Europe, DHL is investing in Hungary, Kuehne + Nagel is leasing warehouse space in Romania and Beiersdorf is to sell its logistics centre in Germany.

Among contract wins (and losses) reported this week are a number of developments at Unipart Logistics (Boots, Apple and Vodafone), TNT, Allied Foods and Norbert Dentressangle.

Urban Transport Policy in Europe: Meeting City Demands for Green Logistics

New Research from Analytiqa

Urban Transport Policy in Europe: Meeting City Demands for Green Logistics takes an in-depth look at the current initiatives and legislation currently being planned and implemented across twenty cities in twelve European countries across both West and Eastern Europe.

The issues addressed are those that will have the greatest impact on providers working within the express, logistics or supply chain arena. It is critical that hauliers, courier and express, logistics and distribution companies across all sectors understand and account for changes in their operational environment.

This report will assist decision makers within these organisations to ensure correct future investment into vehicles, resources, strategies and services that are not only compliant with future environmental legislation (Euro 4, Euro IV, Euro 5, Euro V, etc) and developments, but more importantly, are considered and hence able to take full advantage of some of the opportunities the future, 'greener', market will provide.

Unipart Logistics win four new contracts

14 February 2007 - Unipart has won four multi-million pound long-term contracts including substantial new business with Apple and Vodafone UK.

The contracts total more than £230.0 million in revenue and will create hundreds of new jobs in Unipart’s logistics centres in the Midlands. They establish Unipart as a leader in the rapidly growing and highly demanding field of technology logistics.

The Company’s 27,870 m2 logistics centre in Nuneaton (an integrated logistics and handset repair centre that Unipart runs with Vodafone UK) is growing rapidly and is expected to employ nearly a thousand people making it Britain’s biggest mobile ‘phone repair and refurbishment centre.

950 Unipart staff not only oversee the supply direct from the manufacturers of the mobile handsets themselves but bundle them across a variety of service offerings ensuring the right hardware and software goes to the customer.

The centre also deals with what is known as reverse logistics or customer returns of damaged, unwanted or faulty phones.

Unipart’s proficiency in reverse logistics has also led to major contracts with large internet retailers such as ASOS.com. And from February 2007, it will handle returns of the Apple iPod.
