DB Schenker announced that work has begun in Bergkamen, Germany, to build and operate a new DB Schenker Logistics distribution centre/ finished goods warehouse for the WMF Group, a manufacturer of kitchenware.
DB Schenker has responsibility for the design and overall operation of WMF’s logistics solution, therefore it will look after services such as repacking, display construction and price labelling for WMF.
The goods to be held at the warehouse will come primarily from manufacturing plants in Europe and Asia and are mainly intended for specialist trade in northern Europe and WMF’s customers overseas. The centre will accommodate a range of WMF Group products for the kitchen and dining room, such as cookware, cutlery, decorations and home accessories from the WMF, Silit and Kaiser brands.
Thomas Böger, Member of the Management Board, Schenker Deutschland AG, responsible for Contract Logistics said, “We are very pleased that WMF has decided to work in close partnership with DB Schenker in these important logistics functions. Optimizing the multifaceted logistics tasks in Europe and along the global supply chain offers great potential for both companies.”
