The article explains how Waverley TBS' move to a single logistics operator, Kuehne+Nagel Drinks Logistics (KNDL), has helped it reduced the cost of its supply chain. In the past 18 months, the company has moved to a single operator, KNDL, for its trunking movements, has outsourced bottling to free up warehouse space, and introduced consolidation in country of origin for wine consignments from Italy to reduce stockholdings and transport costs. Improvements have taken place against a backdrop of the Buncefield Fuel Terminal explosion in December 2005.
