GEFCO, a global provider of complex industrial supply chain services and European leader in finished vehicle logistics, has agreed a new UK contract with Plastic Omnium, a global provider of plastic components for major automotive manufacturers.
The partnership will utilise GEFCO’s recently opened 12,000m² Halewood logistics solutions centre, which will serve as Plastic Omnium’s new third-party logistics warehouse. The enhanced operations will support Plastic Omnium’s 240,000 sq ft facility at Omega South in Warrington.
Three dedicated vehicles will deliver suppliers components into the facility, which supports production for major automotive clients in the Halewood area, on a daily basis. Suppliers that were previously delivering directly to Plastic Omnium’s Warrington facility will now deliver straight into GEFCO Halewood.
“This new agreement is testament to the outstanding services that we are providing to customers through the Halewood site. Following a number of recent contract wins, we are now maximising the potential of the facility and fully serving tier one businesses in the automotive sector with our full breadth of expertise,” said Jason Stirling, Key Account Manager at GEFCO UK.
“Our new partnership with GEFCO will enable us to maximise efficiencies at our own warehouse, which supports our work with major automotive clients in the Halewood area,” said Julian Pluchon, Logistics Manager at Plastic Omnium. “We look forward to taking advantage of the capabilities of the market-leading Halewood logistics solution centre, and continuing our historic relationship with GEFCO during this exciting period for both partners.”
