FM Logistic awarded new contract by Unilever in France

FM Logistic has been awarded a contract to provide Unilever with logistics services in northern France.

FM Logistic has been awarded a contract to provide Unilever with logistics services in northern France. Under the agreement, FM Logistic will manage the receipt, warehousing, order fulfilment and co-packing of Unilever’s Personal Care products at its logistics platform in Crépy-en-Valois, about 70 km north of Paris. The contract also involves transporting some of the products on behalf of Unilever.

To better serve Unilever, FM Logistic has expanded its capacity in Crépy-en-Valois by 16,700 sq m for a total area of 116,000 sq m. The site now has 22 extra loading docks and storage room for 25,400 additional pallets.

The Crépy-en-Valois site is already being used by other FM Logistic customers in the beauty care sector, allowing for a more efficient sharing (or pooling) of transport resources between these manufacturers, thereby reducing truck movements and associated emissions. In addition to warehousing space, the Crépy-en-Valois facility houses large co-packing operations. Pick and place robots have been added to speed up the co-packing operations.
