The Beverages Team at TVS SCS are delighted to announce that they have successfully secured another contract renewal with Molson Coors. This new agreement will see TVS continue to support all of Molson Coors’ 250 field-based Technical Representatives with dispense installation and equipment services. In addition, the scope of the contract will be extended with TVS taking on the management and operations of the Molson Coors Equipment Returns Centre in Burton upon Trent.
TVS' relationship with Molson Coors
For the past 6 years, TVS has provided Molson Coors with a range of 4PL services that include;
- Electronic Parts Cataloguing
- Parts Procurement
- Inventory Planning
- Material Control
The further outsourcing of the ERC operation, which will involve the TUPE transfer of existing Molson Coors team members, will enable TVS to extend the range of services and add further value to Molson Coors.
Increases in efficiencies through PUDO (TVS’ Pick Up and Drop Off Network)
The scope of services will be further extended through the provision of the TVS groups’ Pick-up and Drop-off (PUDO) network, which will drive increased efficiencies and cost savings. Other benefits will include;
- The technicians will have a greater choice and flexibility of how they receive their parts. They will have the option of a variety of through-the-night services which deliver either into the back of their van (in-boot), PUDO or direct to site using specialist carriers.
- Molson Coors will benefit from our network of Forward Stock Locations that will hold emergency parts closer to their field based technician teams, in strategically positioned locations.
The contract renewal builds on the long-standing partnership between both companies, which ultimately culminated in TVS SCS being the preferred bidder.
“Consistently Strong Service Delivery”
Jon Standen, Head of Customer Technical Services at Molson Coors, expressed great satisfaction in further cementing the relationship with TVS, “Consistently strong service delivery is critical to meeting Molson Coors’ ambition of being first choice for consumers and customers. Securing reliable and flexible business solutions for our field-based engineering team has been the key driver of this tender process and the diligence and hard work from TVS to prove themselves best in class means this new contract is very well deserved.”
Sales and Commercial Director at TVS SCS, Martin Warington is "delighted to have extended our relationship with Molson Coors - who are a key strategic client within our beverage business".
We have been able to offer Molson Coors new and innovative solutions which enable both businesses to make a real step change in the service performance offered to the field based teams and end customers. The continuous improvement programme that we have put in place to support the new contract will ensure that we continue to deliver added value as we take our relationship from strength to strength. Well done to the team here at TVS SCS!
