FRENCH transport and logistics company Norbert Dentressangle has been awarded a new contract to manage a second CHEP service centre at Aveley reports tradingmarkets.com
The 7.5 acre Aveley site serves CHEP customers, both in the South East of England and in mainland Europe. Under the new contract, Norbert Dentressangle will be responsible for the inspection, repair, painting and dispatch of around six million pallets per annum.
The new contract builds on Norbert Dentressangle’s existing relationship with CHEP which began in 2005 when Norbert Dentressangle was appointed to manage a CHEP service centre in Dunstable. In 2009, Norbert Dentressangle invested more than GBP4 million in the development of a new, purpose-built CHEP service centre at Hoddesdon, where more than 90% of the waste generated by the operation is recycled.
Like at Hoddeson, Norbert Dentressangle will be investing in technology and equipment to deliver environmental and operational benefits at Aveley. Norbert Dentressangle will assume responsibility for managing the Aveley site from April 2011.
