tml-rexam-2Innovative thinking and value added working has won supply chain specialist TM Logistics (TML) an £18m contract extension with one of the world’s leading consumer packaging companies.

Rexam Beverage Can Europe Limited has retained the services of Midlands-based TML for a further five years after the company impressed them with its flexible approach and efficiencies on cost.

“We have an excellent working relationship with TM Logistics and regard them as a valued partner and an integral member of our team,” said Hugh Gallacher, European logistics director at Rexam Beverage Can Europe.

“They align with our supply chain philosophy of cost, quality and supply and have consistently exceeded our expectations in terms of service, delivery and quality. They’re always looking to the future, trying to find innovative new ways of working that increase overall efficiency and boost our bottom line. That’s why we extended their contract.”

As Rexam Beverage Can’s single logistics partner in the UK for the last 10 years, TML manages all Rexam’s can and packaging storage movements nationwide, including just-in-time deliveries from their two UK sites in Milton Keynes and Wakefield.

Undoubtedly, innovation has been central to the success of the partnership. As well as using bespoke equipment, the loading solution employs high cube, walk-through drawbars. TML has also implemented a range of different in-cab technologies and vehicle tracking systems to enhance customer visibility and efficiency.

To support Rexam’s green agenda, the company has introduced alternative fuels on the account as part of its commitment to minimising its environmental impact.

According to Mr Gallacher, this type of innovative thinking, coupled with TML’s ability to respond quickly to Rexam’s changing business needs is another key strength.

“Dealing with one company makes things much simpler and it’s also had a positive knock-on effect for customers. TML employs a dedicated team of drivers to manage our business and as a result, they know how to load and unload our cans properly, without causing any damage. They’ve also been able to develop relationships with our customers – a win win situation for everyone.”

“Rexam continues to be a key account for TM Logistics,” said Grahame Taylor, managing director of TM Logistics.

“We see ourselves as true partners and together we’ve helped Rexam grow and develop. We have a solid understanding of their customer base and we use our experience to be as responsive as possible given the dynamic nature of their business. This latest contract extension is testament to my team’s ability to react quickly to changing customer needs in a challenging economic climate.”

TM Logistics employs over 350 people in 16 on-site operations and warehouses across the UK. The firm operates throughout the UK and ranks many top name companies such as Bosch Thermotechnology Ltd, Crown Food UK, Kingspan Insulation, Saint Gobain Isover and Plastic Omnium amongst its customer portfolio.
