Fujifilm, the Japanese manufacturerof high-tech goods such as cameras, photographic processing, medical and printing equipment as well as life science products, has selected Kuehne + Nagel as contract logistics partner in Poland.
In order to consolidate the inventories of its three warehouses in Poland,
the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Fujifilm has decided to outsource the
respective logistics activities. Under the new agreement, the warehousing
will be merged in Kuehne + Nagel’s 10,000 sqm facility in Chorzow,
which is fully equipped to support inbound, put-away, pick & pack,
outbound and inventory management.
On behalf of Fujifilm Kuehne + Nagel is also responsible for warehouse
management, customs brokerage and value-added services such as
sticking, labelling and plate cutting. A specific focus lies on high-value
goods and hazardous substances, for which a dedicated cold room area
of 300 sqm has been built for Fujifilm. In order to communicate with
the customer’s IT systems, Kuehne + Nagel has implemented special
interfaces to its global warehouse management system.
Aad Goedendorp, Manager Corporate Logistics of Fujifilm Europe, states:
"Kuehne + Nagel has been selected above others, because of their
strong presence in Eastern Europe, their cost-effective operations and
their IT strength."
Tobias Jerschke, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Poland, said:
"Both the high-tech industry and the Eastern European markets are
among the strategic focus sectors of Kuehne + Nagel. Being one of
the world’s leading providers of integrated contract logistics services,
we are convinced that the Fujifilm project will lead to a promising joint
development potential for both partners."
