Chicken Run - Agility signs deal with Nando's
After the loss of the contract to supply US military troops in Kuwait and Iraq, Agility can look forward to going cold turkey, following its appointment by international restaurant chain Nando’s as its provider of complete end-to-end supply chain solutions for the UAE, Kuwait and Oman.
As part of the contract, Agility will provide Nando’s with a range of integrated logistics solutions. These services include sourcing goods from multiple suppliers, consolidation of shipments from the Netherlands and South Africa and freight forwarding and warehousing. Agility will also distribute Nando’s frozen goods and dry food items to their franchise partners, covering the growing needs of their restaurants.
“With a well-established presence, Nando’s needed a partner with the expertise, flexibility and assets to help facilitate our development in the Gulf,” said Dave Corbett, logistics director, Nando’s. “With Agility, we have found that partner.”
Houssam Mahmoud, Agility’s senior vice president, UAE and Oman, commented: “We are delighted to enter into this relationship with Nando’s. This win is a testament to the strength of our regional capabilities and further proof of our expertise in helping customers expand their business within complex emerging markets.”
