NIC ICE: Moving to a new partnership in record time

NIC ICE Limited is a UK subsidiary company of ORKLA ASA, operating as one of 5 NIC European clusters within the NIC Group.  With more than 60 years’ experience behind their brands they are a leading Manufacturer, Supply and Distribution company with Pan European scale in the Ice Cream goods and Ingredients Sector with a wide portfolio of over 2000 SKU’s.

They have five operating locations in the United Kingdom and Ireland including two manufacturing centres and three Distribution centres plus an external Retail channel warehouse and distribution model outsourced via 3PL.   At the start of April 2021 NIC ICE Ltd approached Davies & Robson with a requirement to source and implement a new logistics contractor by the end of June, for the Retail channel.  Davies & Robson responded quickly and were able to establish a comprehensive outsourcing programme, which involved the following:

  • Evaluation of prospective contractors
  • Preparation of the ITT document and supporting data sets
  • Management of the tender process and contractor queries
  • Evaluation of submissions
  • Shortlist of contractors
  • Determination of preferred pricing structure
  • Preparation of contractual agreement
  • Contract negotiation and completion

Following a comprehensive outsourcing process the contract was awarded to Boughey Distribution and successfully implemented by the agreed deadline.

“We are delighted with the support and experience provided by Davies & Robson, the tender process they ran was efficient and professional and resulted in the appointment of Boughey, I would have no hesitation is using them again."
