John Deere renews service contract with Carousel

07 September 2016

New parts contract announced

We are proud to announce the renewal of our parts logistics contract with leading agriculture manufacturer, John Deere.

Carousel has worked with John Deere for four years handling its direct to dealer deliveries in remote areas across the UK and Ireland. The new agreement is testament to the high service levels and continued innovation of Carousel's By:NIGHT service, which ensures essential parts ordered by agriculture and green care dealers are delivered throughout the night, at agreed specified times.

To further enhance the service for John Deere, Carousel has invested in a new air line-haul which now operates daily between Germany and London Southend. This new in-bound service was launched earlier this summer and plays an important part in further developing Carousel's By:NIGHT service offering.

It offers tremendous capability and advantages to John Deere, including improvements across all of its mainland deliveries. Other benefits include later collection times, more control and visibility over the supply chain, as well as a direct link into Carousel's trusted network.

Commenting on the announcement, Graham Martin, CEO at Carousel said:"It is our absolute privilege and pleasure to extend our relationship with one of the world's most admired businesses. Carousel has a commitment to delivering service excellence and helping our clients gain a competitive advantage in their respective markets. This agreement reflects this ethos and our position as a trusted partner of John Deere.

"Our new freight-only aircraft offers enormous flexibility for our By:NIGHT service and is demonstrative of our pursuit for continuous improvement and innovation to support our clients and their customers. Centrally located in Baden-Baden, Germany, it is a strategically-placed route linking mainland Europe and the UK. This investment is one of many exciting developments in our growth strategy."

David Selby, Supervisor - Parts Operations at John Deere, said: "We have an excellent ongoing relationship with Carousel, based on trust and service focus, which provides us and our customers with a reliable and flexible solution in a very demanding environment. They have achieved fantastic results over the last few years and it is because of these reasons that we are so delighted to extend our agreement."
