Bidvest 3663 signs multi-year extension deal with ACS&T

Food logistics provider ACS&T has announced a significant multimillion-pound contract renewal with foodservice wholesale distributor Bidvest 3663, which will potentially see both organisations work together until 2022.

Bidvest 3663 is the supplier for over 60,000 hospitality industry customers across the UK and offers tailored catering solutions for businesses of all sizes, as well as selling a range of own-brand and branded products.

The partnership will see the continuation of the unique National Consolidation Scheme (NCS), which both parties have successfully operated together since 1994, allowing 130 of Bidvest 3663's suppliers to benefit from the shared user platform that ACS&T provides.

As part of the scheme, supplier products arrive into ACS&T's Wolverhampton shared-user storage facility and become immediately visible to the Bidvest 3663 depots and suppliers via ACS&T's real-time web-based stock management system, facilitating a seamless vendor-managed stock and supply service.

Mike Rice, business development director at ACS&T, said: "We are very pleased to be continuing our 20-year working relationship with Bidvest 3663 and such a significant long-term deal reflects the high levels of service we provide for both Bidvest 3663 and the supplier base, as well as demonstrating our own commercial agility and the innovation taking place within our business.

Jim Gouldie, director of supply chain at Bidvest 3663, added: "ACS&T has always delivered a first-class response to our business needs, adapting readily to our consistently evolving requirements. They are an integral part of our supply chain and we look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship well into the future."

In addition to the continued provision of NCS, ACS&T is also offering suppliers and customers of Bidvest 3663 the synergies of its network in other areas, including alternative route to market options for areas such as direct and less than truckload (LTL) deliveries, as well as providing inter-depot stock movements.
