Lexmark selects Kuehne and Nagel as its European Integrated Logistics service provider

Lexmark International Inc., a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of printing and imaging solutions, has awarded Kuehne + Nagel a 10-year-contract
covering the integrated management of its European logistics services.

The contract includes the management of all inbound flows from Lexmark
plants in the Philippines and Mexico as well as from their Asia based
suppliers. Also covered are services such as contract logistics and final
distribution within the EMEA region, reverse logistics management,
process engineering and selected procurement support.

Alliance Control Center manages entire supply chain
The core pillar of the newly signed agreement is Kuehne + Nagel’s onestop-
shop concept featuring the Alliance Control Centre (ACC) based in
Geel (Belgium) and Luxembourg. The ACC provides a team of supply
chain specialists managing the Lexmark supply chain. As a partner,
Kuehne + Nagel ensures that common objectives of reduced total costs
and continuously improving high service levels for Lexmark and its end
customers are achieved. With its expertise and experience, the logistics
provider designs and implements tailor-made solutions for the customer
across logistics and transport segments, using the services of both
Kuehne + Nagel and a variety of other Third Party Logistics providers.
Viv Hanstad-Pilcher, Lexmark’s World Wide Director of Indirect Purchasing
said: "After several years of Logistic Network consolidation, the strategic
next step for Lexmark in EMEA was to enter into a long term aligned
engagement."

Stephan Bily, Director of EMEA Supply Chain Operations at Lexmark said:
"Paramount for us in order to sustain the momentum and drive more
efficiency throughout the Lexmark Supply Chain, is engagement with a
partner sharing the same objectives as Lexmark in terms of process
optimisation, cost reduction and continuous service improvements for our
customers."

Dirk Reich, Kuehne + Nagel Executive Vice President, Contract Logistics
commented: "Integrated Logistics is one of the growth areas of Kuehne +
Nagel, and the Lexmark contract is an excellent example for the
successful development of this business segment. Kuehne + Nagel and
Lexmark have been partners in many countries worldwide for over ten
years, and we are looking forward to cooperating even more closely in the
future."
