UNIPART WINS EXTENSION TO JLR PACKING CONTRACT

Unipart Logistics has signed a new contract with Jaguar Land Rover to retain packing services for a further four years.

The contract provides work for around 100 colleagues at Unipart’s Honeybourne site in Worcestershire and Baginton site in Coventry and will run to the end of 2022.

The operation packs around 800,000 parts every month prior to them being put into storage and distributed across the Jaguar Land Rover global network.

Unipart Logistics started packing for Jaguar Land Rover in 2007 at the Honeybourne site. The service was extended to Baginton in 2010. Since then, the scope of Unipart’s service has grown to the point where the full range of Jaguar products are now packed.

Account Director Elizabeth Satinet said: “I’m delighted we have secured this contract at both Baginton and Honeybourne. The packer operation is a highly visible activity to a multitude of areas within the Jaguar Land Rover supply chain and requires significant collaboration with the customer.

“The team has really worked hard to streamline the processes using digital solutions to enhance the quality and efficiency of the service and enable us to win this four year contract”
