Kuehne + Nagel increases role in food supply chain

Kuehne + Nagel in Multimodal News

Kuehne + Nagel’s strategic push into perishables and consumer goods logistics now includes an array of Nestlé products.   From next year, all Nestlé Netherlands’ chocolate, coffee and culinary products, as well as pet and baby foods, will be warehoused in a distribution center in Veghel that Kuehne + Nagel built for this new partnership.

The two companies have worked together for 15 years, and this latest development increases K+N’s role in the food company’s supply chain.

Entering the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) side of the business will allow the forwarder to put its extensive infrastructure into play in a market that seems to be accelerating.

“The FMCG industry is of strategic importance to Kuehne + Nagel,” said Diederick de Vroet, managing director of K+N Netherlands. De Vroet said that, with Nestlé – Netherlands looking for a single partner for all of its distribution channels, an “omni channel approach,” in which all logistic flows are managed centrally, made the most sense in the “fast-changing consumer landscape.”
