Bond International Chosen as New Logistics Partner for Kumho

Kumho Tyre

As part of the next phase of its long-term plans, Kumho Tyre has now opted for Bond International to manage its UK logistics requirements from January 2019.

Kumho Tyre Opt for Bond International

Bond’s 24-hour computer-driven warehousing and distribution operation, backed by a fleet of satellite-tracked delivery vehicles operating from four distribution hubs, will allow Kumho to upgrade its current ‘next day’ delivery offering to, in many cases, that of ‘same day’ and ‘Saturday’ delivery service levels.

Kumho Tyre UK’s Sales Director Kevin Peck: “In no way is this decision a reflection on our previous service provider, which has served us very well over the past five years, and it is only the desire to offer our customers an even higher level of delivery service than we already provide that has persuaded us to make this move. We will have, in Bond, a logistics partner with all the expertise and reach of a major national wholesale operation – in short, a win-win situation.”
