Crane Worldwide logistics has a signed a new deal with Intertruck Group, member of the Unipart Group of Companies, to expand upon their existing ocean freight provision.
Crane Worldwide Logistics has been awarded a contract to manage over 35,000 individual line items of Heavy Duty spare parts for Intertruck in their state of the art facility in Dubai.
Intertruck Group is an internationally-operating supplier of truck, trailer, bus and off-highway vehicle parts, established in 1963. Based in the Netherlands, the company has become a leading worldwide player with subsidiaries in Germany, Zambia and Dubai. Crane Worldwide Logistics presented a bespoke solution to Intertruck that identified core cost reduction in the storage of Heavy Duty parts including a shelving environment to house individual piece items. The rising facility costs in the UAE is putting significant pressure on manufacturers and their storage capabilities.
Marcel van Eeuwen, Intertruck Group’s CEO added: “Intertruck’s brand range has now grown to over 10,000 products. We are reaching the point that using a Third Party Logistics provider will guarantee the best service level for our customers. Crane Worldwide Logistics could meet our requirements and was the obvious choice.”
Michael Karam, Country Manager UAE at Crane Worldwide commented: “We are delighted to welcome Intertruck on board and are pleased to be identified as their premium provider of warehousing solutions in Dubai. Due to rising facility costs in the UAE, we have a number of cutting edge solutions available to the automotive market and other sectors that can ensure significant cost reductions. Our implementation team concentrates on a seamless transition during the initial phases to ensure minimal supply chain disruption.
The contract began at the beginning of February 2016 and will be in place for three years.
