Kopparberg UK and DHL Supply Chain announce new partnership

05 October 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain

DHL Supply Chain has been appointed by Kopparberg UK, the Swedish brewery and cider company, in a new three-year contract that will see DHL manage the warehouse, co-pack and transport business for Kopparberg in the UK. 

John Greer, Head of Supply Chain, at Kopparberg UK said: “We’re delighted to be working with DHL and the partnership is off to a strong start. We chose DHL because of its industry expertise and automation capabilities to help us optimise our distribution operations as our business grows.”

Jim Hartshorne, MD Retail, Consumer and Ireland, DHL Supply Chain added: “It’s been a pleasure working with the Kopparberg team to deliver a successful implementation and we look forward to developing our partnership over many years to come. The advanced, intelligent automation at Manton Wood is perfectly positioned to deliver an excellent service to Kopparberg and offer smooth and secure peak management.”

BREEAM-rated as ‘Very Good’, the new facility includes a host of environmental features including solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system. In addition to its sustainability credentials, the site incorporates industry-leading automation capable of handling around 75% of overall site volume, making it highly efficient at a time when recruiting skilled labour is proving a challenge.
