Kimberly-Clark Professional has renewed its longstanding warehousing and distribution contract with Norbert Dentressangle for a further three years.
Norbert Dentressangle has been providing warehousing and distribution services at Kimberly-Clark Professional’s Flint RDC since 2000. In addition, Norbert Dentressangle also provides an integrated logistics service under a separate contract for the manufacturing operations, with responsibility for a wide range of additional activities including inbound transportation, production planning, line-feed, on-site materials handling, MHE fleet management, gatehouse control and waste management, resulting in improved operational efficiency and flexibility.
Located on a 90 acre site at Flint in North Wales, Kimberly-Clark operates two mills manufacturing tissue for use in industrial and commercial workplaces and washrooms and baby wipes for sale across many global FMCG customers . The Flint warehouse acts as Kimberly-Clark Professional’s UK distribution centre which, in addition to products manufactured at Flint, stocks and supplies KCP’s entire product range which also includes hand-hygiene and contamination control products and a wide range of ancillary items.
Earlier this year, Kimberly-Clark Professional awarded Norbert Dentressangle’s Flint distribution operation its Lean Logistics Award 2013, for the successful implementation of lean tools and methodologies and commitment to a continuous improvement culture. This is evidenced in the distribution centre’s exemplary health and safety record, recently having achieved 10 years without a Lost Time Accident.
Outside the UK, Norbert Dentressangle also manages Kimberly-Clark Professional’s warehouses at Villey-St. Etienne in France and Oss in the Netherlands.
