Nestlé has awarded a five year contract to Kuehne + Nagel for the warehousing, transportation and delivery of all of its products in the Netherlands.

As of 2018, all Nestlé - Netherlands’ chocolate, coffee and culinary products as well as pet and baby foods will be warehoused in the new Kuehne + Nagel distribution centre in the Dutch town of Veghel, which will be purpose-built for the new partnership.

Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for all logistics flows of Nestlé Netherlands and will be offering all logistics services required by the customers of the food manufacturer, including warehousing and distribution.

Kuehne + Nagel is already supplying all consumer internet orders for Nestlé’s brands Nespresso, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and Special-T. For over 15 years the logistics services provider has also been cooperating closely with the Nestlé International Travel Retail division.

“The Fast Moving Customer Goods industry is of strategic importance to Kuehne + Nagel. We are therefore very pleased to enter into a long-term partnership with Nestlé – Netherlands,” said Diederick de Vroet, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Netherlands.

“Nestlé - Netherlands wishes to have a single partner for all its distribution channels. This ‘Omni channel approach’, in which all logistic flows are managed centrally, is gaining importance in the fast changing consumer landscape.

“We have proven our ability to reliably and effectively operate all channels from the same logistics concept, and to anticipate changes promptly.”
