Yoplait awards NFT three-year logistics contract

Alfreton, Derbyshire, UK:  French yoghurt manufacturer Yoplait has reaffirmed its confidence in logistics partner NFT by extending its contract by a further three years.

Under the contract, NFT manages approximately 84 lines of Yoplait’s product as it makes its journey from France to NFT’s depot in Daventry. This equates to around 500,000 cases going through the Daventry warehouse each week. Once it arrives, NFT takes care of the storage and distribution and is also responsible for the co packing and boxing of products to meet UK packaging requirements. NFT then delivers Yoplait’s order to all the major UK retailers as well as the country’s local convenience stores. From receipt of orders to delivery can take between 12 and 24 hours to complete.

Since December 2010 Yoplait has benefited from NFT’s customer portal, which enables customers to monitor the order at each stage of the supply chain, from when it is receipted, through the picking process in the depot, during transit and finally when the delivery is received and ready to invoice. It also means that NFT can manage Yoplait’s debit and credit notes process more effectively.

Andy De’Vere, NFT’s director of warehouse operations, says: “By extending our contract for a further three years, Yoplait has not only signalled its satisfaction but has enabled us to become a partner in the running of its supply chain. We look forward to helping them to achieve further listings and growth in the UK.”

Flore Belbis, logistics director at Yoplait, says: “NFT has listened to our needs and provided a solution that is effective both in terms of cost and resource. We’re delighted to extend our working relationship with the NFT team for another three years.”
