Hellmann and Wilo sign contract for global logistics cooperation

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and Hella Polska have announced the extension of their cooperation for another four years.

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and Wilo, a manufacturer of pumps and pump systems for building services, water management and industry, have signed a contract to manage the Dortmund-based company’s global movement of goods. For this purpose, Hellmann will operate a new central warehouse for production materials and finished goods in the Dortmund area, Germany, from 2022 onwards, in order to ensure global distribution for Wilo and production supply for the new Dortmund Smart Factory from there. 

The new central warehouse near WILO SE’s headquarters will be located close to the Dortmund factory and is said to have logistical connections to the European production sites and global sales markets. The partnership intends to optimise its logistics processes across countries and also drive forward its digitalisation strategy through the use of smart IT solutions that meet the requirements. Based on this, the cooperation along the entire supply chain is to be expanded and a long-term strategic partnership is to be established in the future, according to Hellmann.

“It was important to us to find a logistics company with a global footprint for a strategic partnership along the entire supply chain. Hellmann convinced us with an innovative overall concept that is in line with Wilo’s growth strategy and, at the same time, supports the digital transformation of logistics processes. In addition, we have already come to appreciate Hellmann’s proven expertise in the field of transport logistics through our previous cooperation,” explained Georg Weber, Chief Technology Officer, WILO SE.

“We are pleased to be on a long-term growth course together with Wilo and to now be able to demonstrate our strength as a global full-service provider. Together, we will supply the global market with Wilo’s quality products from 2022 onwards,” said Volker Sauerborn, Chief Operating Officer Contract Logistics, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
