AB Volvo assigns 3 year contract to DSV

DSV is selected as the provider for supplier collections from southern Germany to Volvo’s plants in Belgium, France and Sweden

AB Volvo

AB Volvo wanted to optimise their inbound supply chain and invited us to participate in the Central Europe request for quotation. The outcome of the tender is that we will manage door-to-door shipments from parts suppliers in Germany to the Volvo plants in Belgium, France and Sweden.

Cross-country cooperation leads to success

The concept that DSV proposed to optimise our inbound supply chain was what we were looking for. And they have a satisfying track record with other activities for AB Volvo. So it was only natural to pick DSV as our sole provider for supplier collections in southern Germany to our various plants in Europe

"We are delighted to have won," says Frank Huijbregts, Business Development Manager in DSV. "In close cooperation with our Swedish, German, Belgian and French colleagues we developed an operational and organisational set-up similar to the existing setup we already have with Volvo."
