Exel wins huge supply chain deal

Supply chain management company Exel has won a contract to develop and run Interbrew's retail drinks distribution network.

The £500m deal will see Exel’s Tradeteam business run Interbrew’s supply chain until at least 2010.

Around 1,500 Interbrew employees will be transferred to Tradeteam when relevant regulatory clearances have been arranged and commercial terms are finalised.

The arrangement is expected to give Interbrew enhanced distribution capabilities whilst enabling the company to focus more on the development of its brands. Exel will also provide Interbrew with a new warehouse management system.

Recent supply chain deals include Woolworths’ selection of US company Savi Technology for a real-time management and shipment security system, and Waltham Forest Council’s choice of Logica for supply chain, HR and e-procurement systems.

Stewart Gilliland, chief exec of Interbrew, UK and Ireland commented: “This deal recognises Tradeteam’s strengths and will allow Interbrew to generate significant improvements in performance in our core activities.”
