Solihull based integrated logistics provider OnLogistics has been chosen as the new UK core sorting station for the leading global core management service in the automotive aftermarket, CoremanNet.
The new sorting station meets the increasing demand in UK for a simple and fast reverse logistics solution offering the capacity to sort up to ~120,000 cores per year. The sorting operation will take place in OnLogistics’ newly acquired and dedicated ~22,000 sq ft facility located in the central belt of the UK, directly adjacent to Birmingham Airport and 1 mile south-east of junction 6 of the M42.
The sorting operation consists of OnLogistics collecting used automotive parts (cores) from retailers and distributors across the country. Cores are then receipted at OnLogistics’ newly opened and dedicated service facility for inspection, sorting, packaging, storing and delivery into Europe. From there CoremanNet decides the future utilisation of the cores to make a new lifecycle for them possible. The CoremanNet service is provided by Circular Economy Solutions GmbH (C-ECO), a german-based company developing business models for circular economy.
“We are really happy about the new partnership with OnLogistics. Their space and capacity offer us a great opportunity to enlarge our handled core volume in Great Britain. During times of Covid-19, it isn’t easy to set up new selection stations but the experience and flexibility of OnLogistics and the good cooperation since the beginning helped us a lot”, says Michael Schedler, CEO of Circular Economy Solutions GmbH.
“We're absolutely delighted to welcome our new client, C-ECO, a flourishing name in automotive circularity worldwide,” said Nick Bennett, Managing Director of OnLogistics. “Key to this relationship is our capability for tailored, value-added services across diverse yet vertical markets. Our combination of technology and expertise puts us in a unique position to help C-ECO enhance its service for years to come.”
C-ECO offers services for the circular economy by using digital technologies, operating a global network for reverse logistics and evaluation of used parts.
