DHL Freight wins Toyota Material Handling Europe contract

DHL Freight is to move around 90,000 tonnes of equipment for Toyota Material Handling Europe in a deal struck yesterday. The contract involves moving racking and other equipment from suppliers to customers’ sites across Europe, and begins later this month.

Materials will be moved from one warehouse to sites all over the continent and islands of Europe.
