Kuehne + Nagel Poland has signed a new contract logistics agreement with Bosch Thermotechnology, an international manufacturer of heating products and water heaters sold under the brand names Junkers, Bosch and Buderus.
Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for consolidating three existing warehouses in Poland and stock in Germany into one site which will be located in Piotrków Trybunalski (Central Poland). The location acts as Poland Distribution Centre for finished goods and spare parts. To ensure optimum supply chain performance Kuehne + Nagel provides warehouse space tailored to the special storage needs of heating and hot water products. Synergies within the existing Kuehne + Nagel logistics campus in Piotrków will allow to better manage the high volatility of activities in the warehouse due to the seasonality of product demands of Bosch Thermotechnology. In the scope of the contract, services include picking and packing, quality inspections, management of inbound flows from suppliers, order preparation, planning, visibility and measurement tools.
Kuehne + Nagel has been supporting Bosch in Poland since 1992. The logistics provider operates Bosch’s distribution centre for power tools and automotive aftermarket in Wrocław and for marketing materials in Warsaw.
Ingo Goldhammer, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel in Poland, commented: “We are very pleased to add a new chapter to our long-time cooperation with Bosch. The new contract we signed with Bosch Thermotechnology reinforces the partnership that we have on a global basis and especially in Poland, where we already operate several facilities. It underlines our customer focus and confirms our strategy to offer industry-specific solutions tailored to their requirements”.
Krysztof Ciemięga, General Manager of Bosch Termotechnology in Poland, added: “Kuehne + Nagel is a valued and trusted partner for Bosch, offering high standard of modern warehouse services. I am pleased that our cooperation has been extended to cover Bosch Thermotechnology division. It allows us to optimise distribution as well as modernise the storage process”.
