Volvo renews TNT international delivery contract

Swedish truck and bus maker Volvo has renewed a three-year contract with express operator TNT for ‘inbound to production’ and aftermarket delivery services in Europe.
TNT will continue to handle Volvo’s European emergency production movements.
TNT collects automotive components and parts from more than 800 different suppliers in Europe and delivers them to production facilities in Sweden, Belgium, France and Poland.
“The service builds on TNT’s integrated road and air network in Europe. It combines scheduled and special services to ensure all production delivery needs are met,” said the express company.
It added: “The need to maintain low inventory levels while keeping assembly lines running smoothly make guaranteed reliable deliveries essential. TNT provides a door-to-door transit monitoring service for shipments from its Automotive Control Centres, with 24/7 availability.”
Under the contract, TNT handles parts distribution to Volvo dealers throughout Europe to support Volvo’s aftermarket offering. Most parts are collected at Volvo’s central or support warehouses in Europe.
Another contract sees TNT managing the delivery of parts from suppliers in Europe to Volvo Trucks’ manufacturing plant in Hagerstown, Maryland, US.
TNT said that its ‘Inbound to Production’ and aftermarket services will be available to more customers in the automotive, high tech and industrial sectors in 2015.
