Imperial Logistics International has announced that it will start to operate the internal factory logistics for the vehicle assembly processes at the Audi AG business site in Győr in Hungary from 1 April 2017 onwards. Imperial will take over the employees, who are currently working for a rival company.
Audi has also renewed the contract with Imperial for managing the logistics optimisation centre for the vehicle factory in Győr. The expansion of operations in Győr is also linked to the extension of a contract at the Polish business location in Polkowice. Imperial will continue to provide the logistics support for the Volkswagen engine factory there.
In Poznań, Imperial’s largest business location in Poland, Volkswagen has also extended the contract for Imperial’s work as a logistics partner.
Rémy Hoeffler, Director Business Unit Automotive, Eastern Europe/International, commented on the latest developments: “As a result of the new contract in Győr and the extension of the agreements in Győr, Polkowice and Poznań, our activities in Eastern Europe are a major pillar in Imperial’s growth strategy.”
Imperial has also been operating a new freight forwarding department in Győr since October last year. This is Imperial’s response to the growing transport market, which is developing in Hungary and the neighbouring countries of Slovakia, Slovenia and Croatia.
Hoeffler added: “The goal is to gain as much of the transport business as possible for Imperial with the support of local sales teams”.
Imperial is a logistics partner for the automobile industry at five business locations in Poland and Hungary. The company has been managing the logistics optimisation centre for Audi’s vehicle factory at the Hungarian site in Győr for three years. In addition to automobile logistics, Imperial is expanding its range of services in the fields of engineering and plant construction as well as retail and consumer goods in Poland.
