Howard Tenens, one of the UK’s largest privately-owned logistics companies has been awarded a new contract with one of the UK’s largest Tools suppliers; Cromwell Tools.

Leicestershire based Tools supplier Cromwell Tools, has chosen Howard Tenens as their distribution partner to facilitate their national branch distribution from Q3 2018. The threeyear deal will see Howard Tenens utilising their Closed Loop Transport Network which is currently utilised by the likes of Toolstation, Honda and Cotswold Outdoor to provide a Through The Night (TTN) distribution solution to the UK Cromwell branch network. Tenens will be delivering in excess of 1,250 cages per week across the estate, where the drivers are given sole responsibility of gaining access to the store, delivering the cages in a secure given location, processing returns, securing the site, and finally returning all empty cages and reverse logistics product back to Cromwell’s distribution centre.

Paul Nicholls, Network Support Manager for Howard Tenens expressed his enthusiasm, commenting: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract from Cromwell Tools. Cromwell are a fantastic retail brand to add to the Howard Tenens portfolio. On a personal level I am looking forward to working with the whole Cromwell team on driving further efficiencies into their operation as we have done for the other contacts in our network. I would also like to welcome the new drivers who will be joining the Tenens team on this contract.”

Cromwell Tools decision to award Howard Tenens with the contract was largely down to the Logistics provider’s unique solution and ability to drive efficiencies into Cromwell’s existing transportation operation through the utilisation of their Closed Loop Network.
