Acumen BMW Mini LR

Coventry-based automotive logistics provider Acumen Automotive Logistics has won a three-year contact with BMW Group UK for the delivery of finished vehicles to dealers.

The contract, which involves delivery of Mini cars from BMW’s Oxford plant to dealers in an area extending from The Wash in the east to North Wales in the west, is Acumen’s first with BMW, said a spokeswoman for the logistics provider.

The Acumen Logistics subsidiary, which last year acquired Stobart Group’s enclosed car delivery operation, Enable, will be investing in an as-yet unspecified number of new trucks to service the contract, she added.

Acumen Automotive Logistics director Peter Raybould said the contract had been won “through our competitive pricing and quality service”, adding: “We are confident that the implementation of our new technologies and innovative solutions will ensure BMW Group UK will receive the highest levels of service.”
