Kuehne+Nagel in Poland has signed a multi-year contract with Huel, a producer of nutritionally complete food, providing e-commerce fulfilment. The dedicated Kuehne+Nagel distribution centre located in Święcice near Warsaw will receive Huel’s products from its European manufacturing sites and provide storage, picking and packaging goods for further door-to-door distribution to twelve European countries.
At the beginning, the facility will encompass an area of over 1,000 sq m, including high pallet storage and gravity picking racks, to facilitate the process of picking and packaging orders for customers. An automated solution for capturing photos of each packed shipment generates additional value.
“In recent years, Kuehne+Nagel has been developing e-commerce services around the world. The dynamic development of this sector on the Polish market is an opportunity to demonstrate our ability to meet logistics needs, especially for dynamically growing companies as Huel. To allow effective service in all twelve European markets, we have created a dedicated order management system, which is directly connected to Huel’s e-shop. We are glad that we can support developing Huel’s business,” says Christophe Le Corre, Contract Logistics Director at Kuehne+Nagel Poland.
“We already distribute to our European customers from two Kuehne+Nagel facilities in the UK and Luxembourg. With the growing demand for our product, we decided to open a third distribution centre with Kuehne+Nagel in Poland to further reduce delivery times and improve the level of service for our customers. Supply chain capabilities on a national and international basis combined with consistent high levels of service to our customer are key to our continued success. Kuehne+Nagel provide this with a fourth facility planned to open with Kuehne+Nagel in Japan in Q3 2020,” says Neville Dobson, Head of Logistics from Huel.
