Sainsbury’s Extend Contract

Sainsbury’s have renewed their freight management contract with Allport for the next two years.

The two companies have been working together since 2008 when Allport were appointed to support Sainsbury’s fast growing non-food, direct import volumes.

David James, Sainsbury’s Head of Non Food Logistics commented

“We recognise Allport’s contribution to the development of our international supply chain strategy and we strongly believe that together, we will continue to deliver against our future plans and maximise the opportunities for the benefit of both companies”.

Products such as General Merchandise and TU Clothing have been a key factor in the growth and success of Sainsbury’s non-food offering.

Darren Palfrey, a Divisional Director in the Supply Chain Management division is delighted by the contract’s extension, he said

“We are really looking forward to continuing our productive relationship with Sainsbury’s; working to enhance supply chain visibility and increasing the development of origin logistics solutions are the foundations of international supply chain success”.
