Rehau, one of the world’s most renowned brands for polymer-based innovations and systems in construction, automotive and other industries, has chosen
Kuehne + Nagel as service provider for road logistics in Middle and Eastern Europe.
Under the agreement, the logistics service provider will manage full-truckload
(FTL) and less-than-truck-load (LTL) transports of all product lines
from Rehau plants in Poland, France, Germany and Austria to Rehau’s
warehouse in Zagreb, Croatia. The majority of the goods transported are
PVC profiles for windows and doors, heating systems and other building
products. Kuehne + Nagel has centralised its customer service for Rehau
in order to optimise efficiency and ensure dedicated distribution in Croatia.
As many of Rehau’s customers do not own unloading lifts, Kuehne +
Nagel provides special trucks with lift cranes for the direct delivery at
customer sites all over the country.
"We are very satisfied as, during our collaboration, Kuehne + Nagel has
always responded in a reliable, fast and easy way," said Sandra Bjelic,
Logistics Manager at Rehau Croatia. "The positive experience we have made with Kuehne + Nagel can be transferred to other nearby Rehau organisations in South East Europe. Therefore an extension of our partnership in other countries is very likely."
Rainer Weeger, responsible for Business Development at Kuehne + Nagel Eastern Europe, said: "The new business is an important milestone in our partnership with Rehau in Eastern Europe. By further strengthening our good relationship with the customer we have been able lately to also expand our cooperation in Bulgaria and in Austria."
