Cosmetics group Colomer selects Kuehne and Nagel as logistics partner for warehousing and distribution

31 May 2011

Spanish cosmetics company The Colomer Group has assigned Kuehne + Nagel the
warehousing, picking & packing and distribution activities for its
hair care products Revlon Professional and American Crew.

Within the scope of the five-year contract, Kuehne + Nagel will

consolidate all logistics operations for Central Europe at its
distribution centre in Biebesheim near Darmstadt (Germany).
Kuehne + Nagel was awarded the contract due to its experience in
the storage, picking and distribution of cosmetics, which are typically
characterised by a wide product range and small packaging sizes. In
Biebesheim, Kuehne + Nagel operates a distribution centre that is
tailored to the requirements of the cosmetics industry.

Colomer's logistics operations in its current warehouses in Germany
and France will gradually be consolidated in Biebesheim, to be
completed by autumn 2011. From the new facility, which can
accommodate several thousand palettes and approximately 1,200
articles for Colomer, Kuehne + Nagel will supply professional hair
salons in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg and the
Netherlands with hair care products; distribution will then be
expanded to Switzerland at a later stage. In addition, Kuehne + Nagel
will provide picking & packing services via pick-by-voice technology.

"Kuehne + Nagel is experienced with the specific logistics needs of
the hair care and beauty industry, and by optimising our distribution
activities we will also be able to improve our customer service," said
Martin ter Veen, Director Customer Service & Logistics at Colomer.
"We are delighted to have been chosen by such a renowned
customer as Colomer," said Volker Sauerborn, Vice President
Sales & Business Development Contract Logistics Central Europe
at Kuehne + Nagel. "In addition, this poses a great opportunity for
us to further expand our industry-specific services for the cosmetics
sector at our facility in Biebesheim."
