Aston Martin, the world-renowned luxury car company, has teamed up with Warwickshire-based express delivery giant TNT to deliver parts for their vehicles - ranging from the smallest washer to body parts or even major engine components.
Spare parts will be sourced at Aston Martins Parts Centre in Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, and delivered to car dealerships both here in the UK - and across the world.
The international portion of the agreement also includes Aston Martins global warranty returns.
Simon Harper, General Manager at TNTs Milton Keynes depot, said: We have a strong track record within the automotive industry, so it is fantastic that Aston Martins growth in production has resulted in increased business for our company.
Aston Martin were clearly impressed by the fact that we can utilise transport links between our customers and offer a high quality, but cost-effective, service by optimising our shared-user distribution network. Its a win-win situation where Aston Martin has the security and re-assurance of using an expert automotive delivery service who is, at the same time, cost competitive.
The TNT Express Services depot at Northfield in Milton Keynes is handling all the throughput of Aston Martin parts before they enter the TNT distribution network for UK and international deliveries.
Simon added: Supported by dedicated through-the-night priority services, we ensure that parts reach the dealership network according to demand - day and night.
All our overnight fleets are fitted with special silent running tail lifts and low noise roll cages to reduce noise levels when unloading in residential areas.
