DHL Supply Chain has been appointed by Lotus Cars to manage the iconic car maker’s inbound-to-manufacturing warehousing and transport operations for the next five years.
Commencing operations in August 2021, DHL is responsible for planning all logistics movements, worldwide collection and tracking of parts, inventory management, picking, kitting and sequencing of products, and shunting from the DHL warehouse to the Lotus Advanced Performance Centre and headquarters in Hethel. This will support production of the newly revealed Emira sports car, in the all-new Lotus manufacturing facilities.
DHL’s expertise in designing Auto-Mobility supply chains and optimising ongoing operations were capabilities key to the award.
Mike Bristow, Managing Director, Manufacturing Logistics UKI at DHL Supply Chain (pictured with Lotus Cars MD Mike Bristow at the world debut of the Lotus Emira last week at Goodwood), added: “Lotus Cars is an iconic British brand with a strong heritage and an exciting future ahead. We’re proud to be working in close partnership to develop an agile and resilient supply chain, delivered by a passionate team who are committed to its long-term success.”
