Rare to see our sector make such national news. A run of national meetings in logistics this week, ‘don’t mention the word chicken.’ as the KFC move from Bidvest to DHL unfolded with issues that brought delivery chain awareness to the World.

When big supply chains break it reveals the complexity of what we do and when the paperwork got sorted the news was good.

the food was stored safely.



It began early in the week with a light-hearted statement on the KFC website informing consumers about the problems, the restaurant said: ‘The chicken crossed the road, just not to our restaurants.’ It had closed many outlets, KFC said, because it would not compromise on quality.

John Boulter, DHL's managing director for the retail supply chain,  Tuesday evening, ‘DHL regrets the interruption of supply and is working diligently to rectify the situation by working with KFC and other partners involved in the supply chain.’ DHL reported in November that it had been appointed alongside QSL to manage the supply and distribution of food products and packaging for more than 850 KFC outlets in the UK. It would manage the physical warehouse and distribution service. KFC said it had specifically chosen the pair for their reputation of ‘innovation in logistics’ across other industries.

As this week completed queues of lorries outside the Warwickshire depot were cleared. Rugby Borough Council, ‘DHL have now filled in the correct paperwork and an inspection revealed food was stored safely.’
