Dear TUCO Member
TUCO have been asked to forward the following message below regarding the future, new ‘route to market’ for CCEP products for all members:
As you are aware CCEP have been working with Bestway to create a new logistics partnership for the delivery of CCEP products into TUCO. After much consideration between both CCEP and Bestway, we have decided that we needed to find a permanent solution for TUCO members in a quicker timescale than we were getting to under this partnership.
We have already been in talks with Bidfood and we are very pleased to inform you that we reached an agreement for them to deliver on behalf of CCEP. We started a logistics relationship with Bidfood in April this year, from then they have delivered an excellent service and demonstrated a great deal of customer care in their approach. We have already implemented all the necessary IT solutions which allows orders to be delivered without an invoice from Bidfood, meaning that CCEP can return to direct invoicing at the agreed TUCO pricing. They are also already integrated with the CCEP Portal and are currently using it for other customers. If you are using a procurement system (i.e. Saffron), you can continue to do so and will not have to be placing orders twice.
Bidfood are now raising accounts for the CCEP direct delivery deal and will be route planning all of the TUCO outlets over the coming weeks. Both CCEP and Bidfood will be in a position to move customers over from their current supply to Bidfood from November. If we are in a position to commence with any outlet before then we will endeavour to do so and will communicate accordingly. In the meantime please continue placing all orders through Matthew Clark which will remain on the TUCO price file until we switch across to Bidfood.
We will be in touch via TUCO head office and through our Field Sales team with a full plan of how to place orders, your delivery day/order day and a Frequently Asked Question sheet in October several weeks ahead of go live.
We would like to thank you for your continued patience in what has been a turbulent period of time following the administration of P&H and we look forward to building a strong reliable delivery solution for TUCO members in the very near future.
If you have any queries about this, please contact your CCEP account manager who will answer questions where possible.
