Federal-Mogul Motorparts has agreed to a multi-year contract with Kuehne + Nagel to operate its new automotive replacement parts distribution center near Budapest, Hungary. The opening ceremony took place in the presence of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Following a successful test run, the new built-to-suit logistics hub is ready for full operations to commence. The logistics complex will serve customers in Southern, Eastern and Central Europe in conjunction with the company’s new distribution center in Willebroek, Belgium; the new facility in Páty will also serve customers in Africa and other markets adjacent to the EU.

“The opening of our new distribution center in Hungary is the next logical step in our effort to better serve customers, including our long-term goal of being best-in-class in order-to-delivery time,” explained Andrew Sexton, President, EMEA Aftermarket and Regional President, EMEA, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Together with our new distribution center in Willebroek, our regional warehouses and improved supply chain capabilities, we believe this new facility positions Federal-Mogul Motorparts to be the first choice for customers in our product categories.”

“We are very pleased to enter into a partnership with Federal-Mogul Motorparts in Hungary,” said Gianfranco Sgro, member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Contract Logistics. “It proves our capabilities to specifically address the logistics needs of globally operating companies and underlines our expertise to deliver solutions that create day-to-day efficiency benefits and quality. This new contract is a key strategic win for Kuehne + Nagel in Hungary and reflects our business strategy to continuously strengthen our presence in automotive replacement parts logistics.”
