DENMARK – CHINA – UK – It was announced this week that BT Retail has awarded a three year ocean freight contract to Danish-based global transport and logistics services suppliers DSV Air & Sea. The contract, to manage air and ocean cargo volumes from China to the UK for BT Retail, has already been implemented according to BT Procurement’s John Morgan, Senior Buyer Distribution Services, with an almost seamless changeover taking place. He said:

“Following a competitive tender exercise BT awarded a three year sea freight contract to DSV. The decision for this was based on a number of contributing factors but primarily whole life cost, ease of transition and innovation.

“Throughout the exercise DSV demonstrated enthusiasm, drive and flexibility head and shoulders above the other bids. Any concerns BT had over transitioning to DSV were also proven to be unfounded with an almost seamless change over taking place. I am looking forward to working with DSV and growing the relationship over the contract term.”

DSV Air & Sea won the contract after an intense and lengthy quotation request handled by BT’s Procurement team. UK Managing Director Michael Hansen said that it is very exciting for DSV to be working with a company like BT and the firm are delighted that BT has recognised the potential to handle this work and hopefully expand the relationship in the future.
