VanRiet named finalist at DP DHL Supplier Awards in Sustainability category
During the Supplier Awards ceremony in the Innovation Center in Bonn, VanRiet was named finalist and top 3 supplier in the Sustainability category by DP DHL. The DP DHL Group Supplier Awards were launched in 2016 to intensify the collaboration between the Group and their suppliers and to measure their contribution to DP DHL Group’s strategic goals. As an important supplier, VanRiet was asked to participate in this competition as well and among 90 applicants we submitted our contribution in all four categories (Quality, Innovation, TCO and Sustainability).
‘Our application was built around the new DHL Express Service Center Breda with a bi-directional IQ-Grid sorting system with 6 meter wide fingers. We managed to increase the efficiency of the concept results by increased time for the couriers on the road, more stops per van and thus less vans per Service Center which lowers the CO2 footprint’, explains Johan Hoelen, Global Account manager CEP market at VanRiet.
This honorable mention as finalist at the Supplier Awards fits well with the image of DHL and VanRiet being partners and working together successfully for years now. The close relationship obviously contributed to this achievement, although the results of the new concept for DHL Express in Breda were decisive according to the jury report.
