Crestron, the world´s leader for advanced control and automation systems,
is expanding its contract with Kuehne + Nagel Belgium and is bringing all
its warehousing activities under one roof.
The successful cooperation between Crestron Europe and Kuehne + Nagel
was established in 2003. To further support Crestron’s development,
Kuehne + Nagel has now redesigned the complete logistics processes of
its customer. Starting in January 2013, Kuehne + Nagel will employ about
ten of Crestron´s logistics employees and will manage all logistics activities.
Kuehne + Nagel will also invest in technical rooms and special installations
to accomodate Crestron´s highly technical activities. With the new set-up
Kuehne + Nagel is optimising the supply chain and reducing logistics costs.
Jacky Raymaekers, Crestron’s Financial and Services Director, says:
"As a leader in the audio visual market we now link the quality of our
products to a high-quality flow of logistics. On the other hand, we need a
flexible approach for handling our logistics processes and a strong future
orientation for our expansion. We look forward to this collaboration with
Kuehne + Nagel, which will guarantee a strong and high-quality logistics
foundation and benefit the growth of both Crestron and Kuehne + Nagel."
Bert Claes, Director of Contract Logistics at Kuehne + Nagel Belgium,
adds: "The extension of the contract with Crestron is a result of Kuehne +
Nagel’s aim for continuous improvement. We always work closely together
with the customer to identify and implement unique solutions which fit the
specific requirements best."
