Unipart secures extension Kimberly-Clark

Unipart Logistics has secured a three-year contract extension with Kimberly-Clark for the management of UK warehouse operations in Barrow, Chorley and Northfleet through to 2022.

The partnership started in 2014, today Unipart has 200 employees supporting Kimberly-Clark. In Chorley and Northfleet, they manage 120,000 pallets of finished goods in automated warehouses, fed by a cross dock operation in Barrow.

Digital advancements are key to improving the quality of services. The ‘Yard App’, for example, a digital solution designed in-house by Unipart to optimise inbound control in Chorley, proved successful, it has since been rolled out to the other two sites.

Throughout the partnership, Unipart has demonstrated how its operations have improved standards, efficiency, productivity and costs. In extending the contract, Kimberly-Clark has recognised this.
