A focus on increasing delivery efficiency while reducing mileage and carbon emissions
DHL will continue to deliver for the Scunthorpe-headquartered wholesale operator until 2023, continuing a relationship first fostered in 2009.

A total of 1,500 permanent staff are employed, with around 300 agency colleagues at any one time.

Kerinne Oliver, Nisa’s head of logistics, said:

“Nisa has enjoyed a great relationship with DHL and have been supported exceptionally well through the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

“The extension of the contract with a partner of DHL’s scale will help support Nisa in developing its routes and supply chain whilst allowing us to increase our supplied network of partners.”

The deal will see DHL continue its work with Nisa to help develop the business’s transport planning system with a focus on increasing delivery efficiency while reducing mileage, carbon emissions and reviewing any further collaboration opportunities.

Jim Hartshorne, managing director of retail and consumer at DHL Supply Chain, added:

“This renewal is a fantastic result for DHL and all the team on the Nisa account who have worked tirelessly over the whole term of the last agreement to demonstrate the strength of our partnership.

“That partnership has been confirmed during the Covid-19 crisis but is deeper and will last longer than these difficult times.

“We have lots to do on the next stage of our partnership and we are all looking forward to supporting Nisa deliver excellent service for all their partners in the coming years.”
