DHL’s automotive sales and marketing service, Inside Track, has won a new contract with Jaguar Land Rover off the back of a 17-year relationship with the manufacturer.

The deal will see Alconbury-based Inside Track manage JLR’s Special Moves operation, moving 10,000 finished vehicles around the world every year.

DHL will also meet JLR’s specialist transportation needs for events, research and test vehicles and product launches.

Bill Bacon, MD of automotive UK and Ireland for DHL Supply Chain, said: “We are delighted to have extended our logistics operations with Jaguar Land Rover which dates back over 17 years. This is an exciting opportunity for us. We are committed to delivering a first class customer experience to the Jaguar Land Rover team.

“By leveraging DHL’s skills in managing 4PL transportation along with Inside Track’s finished vehicle sales and marketing sector experience we are able to provide a highly skilled team to manage this service.”

Last month, Inside Track renewed its three year contract as logistics provider for Ford’s Fleet Demonstrator programme.
