Nisa said the contract extension would help develop the business’ transport planning system

Nisa Retail has signed a contract extension with logistics giant DHL until 2023 to continue to deliver goods to more than 1,400 of its retailers.

Under the agreement DHL will continue to provide warehousing, transport, facilities and ancillary services for the symbol group throughout the UK.

Nisa said the contract extension, which reflects the renewal of the existing long-term agreement dating back to 2009, would help develop the business’ transport planning system. It will focus on increasing delivery efficiency while reducing mileage, carbon emissions and reviewing any further collaboration opportunities.

“Nisa has enjoyed a great relationship with DHL and have been supported exceptionally well through the ongoing Covid-19 crisis,” said Nisa head of logistics Kerinne Oliver.

“The extension of the contract with a partner of DHL’s scale will help support Nisa in developing its routes and supply chain whilst allowing us to increase our supplied network of partners.”

Jim Hartshorne, MD of retail and consumer at DHL Supply Chain, added: “This renewal is a fantastic result for DHL and all the team on the Nisa account who have worked tirelessly over the whole term of the last agreement to demonstrate the strength of our partnership.

“That partnership has been confirmed during the Covid-19 crisis but is deeper and will last longer than these difficult times. We have lots to do on the next stage of our partnership and we are all looking forward to supporting Nisa to deliver excellent service for all their partners in the coming years.”
