Norbert Dentressangle Extends Manchester Contract

European logistics and transport company, Norbert Dentressangle, has extended its original three-year contract with the Manchester Airport Group (MAG).
The volume of goods handled on behalf of airport retailers has risen steadily, leading to the opening of a new larger off-site handling facility on March 5.
Norbert Dentressangle now consolidates deliveries from over 20 retailers and caterers at its new warehouse.  All goods are security screened using X-ray machines prior to being security checked and delivered directly to the retailer or to a secure storage area by security cleared drivers.
Dan Myers, Business Unit Director at Norbert Dentressangle Logistics said:
“We are delighted that MAG has decided to extend our contract.  The decision reflects the high service levels of a heavily regulated solution to MAG’s logistic requirements.  MAG requires a high level of security.  There is no room for error.  We have delivered an efficient and secure service which MAG has been happy to continue with.”
Andrew Harrison, Manchester Airport’s Commercial Director said: “The move from the previous site was seamless, and a great credit to the planning and operational ability of Contract Manager Peter Leigh and his team.  We are thrilled with the new consolidation centre, which represents a real step forward in our partnership with Norbert Dentressangle, and we’re looking forward to driving the volumes through the new centre in line with our strategy.
