Acumen Logistics Group is continuing its penetration of the auto logistics market by winning a contract from leading Chinese automotive polyurethane product manufacture, DaiMay. Acumen is providing DaiMay with an integrated logistics package for the supply of headrests to UK Automotive Manufacturers. It is anticipated that 540,000 pieces will be shipped to the UK each year.
Providing a seamless turnkey operation, Acumen will manage the flow of goods and services from receiving shipping containers of headrests at its warehouse in Redditch to delivery to the customers. The total solutions package includes devanning the containers, visual inspection, repacking into line side boxes, storage and then shipping on a Just-In-Time basis.
In addition, Acumen is also providing ongoing quality control support at its warehouse and at customers manufacturing sites.
Based in Shanghai, DaiMay is one of the largest manufacturers of polyurethane products for the automotive industry supplying sun visors, steering wheels and seating assemblies. Its decision to award the contract to Acumen was based on the companys proven record of quality and operational knowledge of the automotive industry.
Vice General Manager of DaiMay, Mr Chunlei Ye said: We are very pleased with Acumen and the services they are supplying to us. The company is very reliable, systematic and efficient and is totally committed to our business partnership.
Winning the contract from DaiMay is a continuation of Acumens expansion within the automotive logistics market. Earlier this year the company purchased Auto UK Logistics, now rebranded Acumen Automotive Logistics, and is currently looking at further acquisitions within the market sector.
