Recently, Total Kenya and DHL Supply Chain announced they have signed a three-year supply chain contract covering diesel, petrol, lubricants and LPG gas.
The contract also allows DHL Supply Chain personnel to use the Total Bon Voyage card for purchasing petroleum products from the network. There are more than 160 Total service stations throughout Kenya.
The supply chain card system eliminates cash payments and helps DHL Supply Chain with the tracking of movements of their vehicles and with general fleet management.
The Managing Director of Total Kenya Limited, Alexis Vovk, and the Operations Director of DHL Supply Chain, Ben Clay, signed the three year contract at a ceremony held in the DHL Supply Chain Regional Office located at the Nairobi Business Park, Ngong Road in Central Africa.
DHL Supply Chain is a full subsidiary of German multinational Deutsche Post DHL. They are the largest supply chain management and logistics service provider in Kenya providing solutions in inbound and outbound logistics, warehousing and distribution, as well as reverse logistics.
During the signing ceremony in Africa, Vovk repeated Total Kenya’s commitment to the provision of quality products and services. He stated that the company will be operating responsibly and in an innovative way.
Total Kenya will offer value to all of their partners in general and commercial business in particular, as a way of helping them grow their businesses sustainably.
This agreement between the two companies not only extends the capabilities of the supply chain, it also helps to strengthen the brand for both providers as this contract will have far-reaching implications. As long as it is handled with a quality approach to service, everyone is bound to win.
