Leading storage and materials handling specialist Dexion has signed a Joint Business Development Partnership (JBDP) with Unilever.
The partnership follows Dexion’s successful tender against seven other racking providers to provide a storage solution for a new mega distribution centre in Jarkata, Indonesia.
Under the new JBDP Dexion and Unilever will work closely together to achieve a number of goals. This includes growing their mutual businesses, compressing project lead times and efficiently managing costs.
According to O’Keefe, Dexion has already begun exploring joint cooperation opportunities with Unilver’s global senior teams in supply chain, logistics and procurement.
“This partnership is a great example of what our business is capable of, said O’Keefe. “We have hit the ground running as we begin to work closely with Unilever in building its supply chain capacity, not only in terms of plant, but also people and systems.”
