Kuehne + Nagel to provide e-commerce fulfillment in Poland
Kuehne + Nagel’s dedicated distribution centre in Święcice near Warsaw will receive Huel’s products from its European manufacturing sites and provide storage, picking and packaging goods for further door-to-door distribution to 12 European countries.
The facility is set to encompass an area of more than 1,000 sqm, including high pallet storage and gravity picking racks, to facilitate the process of picking and packaging orders for customers. An automated solution for capturing photos of each packed shipment generates additional value.
“In recent years, Kuehne + Nagel has been developing e-commerce services around the world,” commented Christophe Le Corre, Contract Logistics Director at Kuehne + Nagel. “The dynamic development of this sector on the Polish market is an opportunity to demonstrate our ability to meet logistics needs, especially for dynamically growing companies as Huel. To allow effective service in all 12 European markets, we have created a dedicated order management system, which is directly connected to Huel’s e-shop. We are glad that we can support Huel’s business.”
“We already distribute to our European customers from two Kuehne + Nagel facilities in the UK and Luxembourg,” added Neville Dobson, Head of Logistics at Huel. “With the growing demand for our product, we decided to open a third distribution centre with Kuehne + Nagel in Poland to further reduce delivery times and improve the level of service for our customers. Supply chain capabilities on a national and international basis combined with consistent high levels of service to our customers are key to continued success. Kuehne + Nagel provide this with a fourth facility that is planned to open with Kuehne + Nagel in Japan in Q3 2020.”
