Unipart Logistics has secured a five-year contract to run the new Jaguar Land Rover Global Parts Logistics Centre at Appleby Magna in Leicestershire, which will open in 2022. Unipart will provide aftermarket parts logistics for both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands at the new 2.9m sq ft campus.
At the new facility, Unipart Logistics will operate the aftermarket distribution centre, parts packing and branded goods operations, as well as customer support functions. The agreement comes after Unipart won a three-year contract to provide production logistics at Jaguar Land Rover’s West Midlands Battery Assembly Centre in March of last year.
John Neill, Chairman and Chief Executive of the Unipart Group, said, “With this new contract, we will support the evolution of Jaguar Land Rover aftermarket logistics with a proposition that reflects our joint commitment to digital innovation, environmental sustainability and of course, industry-leading customer service. As an independent British company that takes the long term view, Unipart is committed to this partnership and we look forward to creating this future together.”
