Kuehne and Nagel awarded PepsiCo warehousing freight management and distribution contract

PepsiCo, one of the world’sleading producers of convenience foods and beverages, has awarded a ten-year contract to Kuehne + Nagel for its Dutch
warehousing and distribution activities. Kuehne + Nagel’s solution
exploits synergies to secure a faster and environmentally friendly
supply chain.

PepsiCo decided to outsource its warehousing, freight management
and distribution operations in the Netherlands to achieve three main
goals: The global food and beverages corporation wanted to improve
customer service by responding even quicker to changing market
demands while at the same time reducing supply chain costs as well as
the environmental impact of its transportation activities.
"We have chosen Kuehne + Nagel due to the company’s in-depth
knowledge of the FMCG industry," said Erwin Rosens, Supply Chain
Director at PepsiCo Netherlands. "They provide us with an integrated
and flexible solution that copes with the daily patterns and seasonality of
the food industry."

Within the scope of the contract, Kuehne + Nagel provides a supply
chain solution tailored to PepsiCo’s specific needs. By integrating
PepsiCo into Kuehne + Nagel’s Dutch distribution network, fewer
kilometres will be needed to transport salty snacks, cereals and nuts
from Belgian and Dutch manufacturing sites to the distribution centre in
Utrecht and further to retailers throughout the Netherlands. In addition,
Kuehne + Nagel will develop a new state-of-the-art, multi-user FMCG
(Fast Moving Consumer Goods) campus in Utrecht, equipped with high
bay storage and automatic layer picking during the first year of the
agreement.

"We are delighted that PepsiCo has trusted us to increase the efficiency
of its warehousing and supply chain activities in the Benelux. It is a
confirmation that we provide optimal service to FMCG customers," said
Tim Beckmann, Director Contract Logistics at Kuehne + Nagel
Netherlands.
