UK Ministry of Defence, acting through its Agent, Babcock Land Defence Ltd Award Land Rover Spares Contract to TVS Supply Chain Solutions.

The UK Ministry of Defence, acting through its Agent, Babcock Land Defence Ltd, has awarded TVS Supply Chain Solutions (TVS SCS) a contract for the supply of spares, consumables and accessories for the Land Rover Wolf Platform.

The two plus one-year agreement will see TVS SCS use its accredited inventory management, procurement and supply chain expertise to ensure the optimum availability of spares for this legacy vehicle platform.

The Land Rover Wolf fleet has been in service with UK MOD since the mid-1990s. Approximately 6,500 vehicles remain in service providing the UK MOD with its utility capability. Obsolescence management is an important ongoing requirement which TVS SCS, along with the Post Design Services contractor, will continue to address to support the availability and upkeep of the platform.

This award builds on TVS SCS’s strong position providing supply chain capability in support of several of the UK MOD’s vehicle platforms including: the MITER fleet (construction vehicles, mechanical handling equipment and protective plant); Armoured Fighting Vehicles; and Light Protected Vehicles fleets.

TVS SCS is a global supply chain organisation managing circa 3 million items per day for customers across automotive, beverage, defence, healthcare, rail, and utilities sectors. Clients across these sectors rely on TVS to create and manage resilient supply chains to proactively mitigate the risk of supply from global disruptions.

Ben Slade, Babcock Head of Strategic Sourcing, commented, “TVS SCS proposed the most robust solution, successfully demonstrating high-quality automotive supply chain capability to maximise parts availability supporting this critical vehicle platform whilst also ensuring value for money for our UK MOD customer”.

Irene Ainscough, TVS SCS Defence Director, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract, which builds on the work we are delivering across the UK MOD in proactively building supply chain resilience and driving best practice to deliver support advantage.”
