UK: Tibbett & Britten Wins Levi Logistics Deal
International logistics service provider Tibbett & Britten Group Plc has been awarded a multi-million pound contract to provide fourth party logistics (4PL) solutions for inbound transportation to Levi Strauss Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The products that will be handled are the Levi's and Dockers brands of casualwear, with Tibbett & Britten coordinating and managing all Levi Strauss & Co's transportation from factories to distribution centres and between manufacturing plants and finishing plants across Europe.
It will transport raw materials to Levi Strauss factories and those of its contractors as well as deliver finished product to the apparel giant's regional distribution centres.
The UK-based company will also handle the transport and freight forwarding of inbound materials and finished product from around the world. The service should be operational from next month.
Commenting on the deal, Tibbett & Britten's key account manger in the UK, Martyn Mann, said: "The reengineering of Levi Strauss & Co's transportation in Europe was carried out by a cross-discipline group from our fashion development team in the UK.
"Using state-of-the-art IT systems to enhance planning and provide full visibility of raw materials and finished product throughout the supply chain, we believe we will be able to provide Levi Strauss & Co with both service benefits and cost savings."
