May 22, 2006
BLUE BELL, Pa., – Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) today announced that it has selected DHL as its global lead provider for service parts logistics. Under the agreement, Unisys will consolidate movement and repair of equipment parts from more than 100 providers into a comprehensive solution, managed by DHL, that will benefit clients to whom Unisys provides technology support and maintenance services.
Unisys anticipates that the relationship with DHL will enable the company to streamline delivery of those services further over the life of the agreement, which has a term of up to seven years, while increasing benefits to customers.
"Working through a lead service parts logistics partner with a global network enhances the services we can provide Unisys customers,” said Judith A. List, vice president and managing partner, Services and Solutions, Global Outsourcing and Infrastructure Services, Unisys. “In addition, consolidating management of parts logistics can provide operational efficiencies for Unisys while streamlining service delivery for clients.”

DHL has provided services for Unisys since 1997 and currently handles service parts logistics for Unisys in Australia, some parts of Europe and most of Latin America.
