West Midlands Police awards end-to-end uniform supply chain contract to DHL

West Midlands Police awards end-to-end uniform supply chain contract to DHL

DHL Supply Chain has been awarded an initial six year contract by West Midlands Police (WMP) to join the National Uniform Managed Service (NUMS).

As part of the contract, DHL will design and deliver police uniforms and equipment for WMP, based at a DHL site. DHL will provide a consistent, efficient and uninterrupted supply of products ranging from patrol wear to body amour. This uses a market-leading web shop to provide a major improvement in access to uniformed police officers and staff, supported by DHL’s core expertise in managing the upstream supply chain as well as local deliveries to the force.

WMP is the second police service, following the Metropolitan Police in 2016, to work with DHL to implement NUMS and work towards a single national platform for uniform procurement.

Simon Potter, VP Public Sector, DHL Supply Chain, said: “We’re delighted to build on our success with the Metropolitan Police and manage NUMS for West Midlands Police. We’re proud to have developed a service which streamlines uniform procurement to create significant cost savings, and make the day-to-day lives of officers that much easier.
