Nestlé has announced their selection of Kuehne + Nagel for an intensive logistics partnership in the Netherlands. Over the next five years, all products by Nestlé – Netherlands will be warehoused, transported and delivered by Kuehne + Nagel.
As of 2018, all Nestlé – Netherlands’ chocolate, coffee and culinary products as well as pet and baby foods will be warehoused in the new Kuehne + Nagel distribution center in the Dutch town of Veghel, that was purpose built for this new partnership. Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for all logistics flows of Nestlé Netherlands and will be offering all logistics services required by the customers of the food manufacturer, including warehousing and distribution.
”The Fast Moving Customer Goods (FMCG) industry is of strategic importance to Kuehne + Nagel. We are therefore very pleased to enter into a long-term partnership with Nestlé – Netherlands. Nestlé – Netherlands wishes to have a single partner for all its distribution channels. This ‘Omni channel approach’, in which all logistic flows are managed centrally, is gaining importance in the fast changing consumer landscape. We have proven our ability to reliably and effectively operate all channels from the same logistics concept, and to anticipate changes promptly. We thereby can provide Nestlé – Netherlands with the right logistics solution,” says Diederick de Vroet, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Netherlands.
