Scandinavian Auto Logistics named the best Outbound Logistics supplier in Europe by the Renault/Nissan Alliance
Scandinavian Auto Logistics (SAL) of Esbjerg, Denmark, named the best Outbound Logistics supplier in Europe by the Renault/Nissan Alliance. This is just four years after cooperation between SAL and the car giant began.
In just four years, Esbjerg-based Scandinavian Auto Logistics (SAL) has become the best-performing vehicle terminal in the Renault/Nissan alliance’s extensive European logistics network. The proof of this was the presentation of an award at a major event for all suppliers held last Friday in Paris, when COO Steen Hansen and CCO Michael Lodberg received the honour on SAL’s behalf.
Renault/Nissan evaluates its suppliers on many different parameters, e.g. timely delivery, communication and innovation, and in 2017 SAL achieved the top scores, in sharp competition with other, far bigger logistics companies from the whole of Europe.
Cooperation between Renault/Nissan and SAL took off in earnest in 2013, and since then the Danish company has consistently been among the best suppliers in its category. In 2016, SAL went all the way to the top in the annual awards ceremony.
“This wonderful result is largely due to the skills of our employees and the level of cooperation between them,” says Henrik Otto Jensen, CEO at SAL.
SAL’s role is the receiving and preparation of new vehicles in Denmark and their distribution to dealerships. More than 70,000 vehicles are received every year at the Port of Esbjerg by ship, a figure equivalent to almost half the vehicles sold in Denmark.
SAL was founded in 1999 in cooperation with Italian shipping company Grimaldi Lines and NielsWinther Shipping, and since then has grown from just a few persons to a total workforce of 42. Apart from Renault/Nissan, SAL handles many other vehicle brands.
