Gebrüder Weiss announced that it has restructured goods purchasing and distribution in Eastern Europe for its customer, Grundfos. The central hub for this process is a new cargo handling warehouse in Biatorbágy, Hungary, from which Gebrüder Weiss will export all of the products offered by the Danish pump manufacturer to a total of 16 countries. By outsourcing Grundfos is expected to save 10% on its original delivery costs.
Grundfos has expanded in Eastern Europe in recent years and produces pumps and motors at four sites in Hungary. In order to combine the individual factory deliveries, Gebrüder Weiss has set up a central cross-docking warehouse and logistics terminal for all Grundfos shipments. The buildings are customized to meet the needs of the pump manufacturer and include an area of 16,000 sq m. Gebrüder Weiss is also responsible for the optimization of delivery of the raw materials to the manufacturers and distribution of the end products.
Gebrüder Weiss states that, due to its central location, Hungary is an ideal hub for shipments in Eastern Europe. The presence of Gebrüder Weiss in Hungary encompasses four dedicated sites, 246 employees, and many years of transport experience.
