Solihull integrated logistics provider OnLogistics has signed a deal with Circular Economy Solutions (C-ECO) to provide and operate a UK sorting station for used automotive parts.
C-ECO’s CoremanNet service collects over four million used automotive parts, known as cores, every year. It checks their technical and commercial condition and then provides them to customers for industrial remanufacturing.
CoremanNet's global network has more than 20 inspection centers on four continents, including the new OnLogistics sorting station.
OnLogistics’ newly acquired, dedicated 22,000 sq ft facility, which is close to Birmingham Airport and the M42, has the capacity to sort up to around 120,000 cores per year.
Under the deal OnLogistics will collect the cores from retailers and distributors across the country and process them at the new facility for inspection, sorting, packaging, storing and delivery into Europe.
Michael Schedler, chief executive of Circular Economy Solutions (C-ECO), said: “We are really happy about the new partnership with OnLogistics. Their space and capacity offer us a great opportunity to enlarge our handled core volume in Great Britain.
“During times of Covid-19, it isn’t easy to set up new selection stations but the experience and flexibility of OnLogistics and the good cooperation since the beginning helped us a lot.”
Nick Bennett, MD of OnLogistics, added: “We're absolutely delighted to welcome our new client, C-ECO, a flourishing name in automotive circularity worldwide.
“Key to this relationship is our capability for tailored, value-added services across diverse yet vertical markets. Our combination of technology and expertise puts us in a unique position to help C-ECO enhance its service for years to come.
