Nestlé signs five-year agreement with Kuehne + Nagel Netherlands

Nestlé and Kuehne + Nagel have agreed a five-year partnership, whereby the latter will provide warehousing, transport and delivery services for all Nestlé products in the Netherlands.

As of 2018, all Nestlé – Netherlands’ chocolate, coffee and culinary products as well as pet and baby foods will be warehoused in a dedicated Kuehne + Nagel distribution centre in the Dutch town of Veghel. Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for all logistics flows of Nestlé Netherlands and will be offering all logistics services required by the customers of the food manufacturer, including warehousing and distribution.

Kuehne + Nagel is already supplying all consumer internet orders for Nestlé’s brands Nespresso, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and Special-T. The logistics services provider has also been cooperating closely with the division Nestlé International Travel Retail (NITR) for more than 15 years. For the International Travel Retail concept, Kuehne + Nagel supplies goods from its Veghel location to all duty-free destinations around the world, such as airports and cruise ships.

”The Fast Moving Customer Goods (FMCG) industry is of strategic importance to Kuehne + Nagel. We are therefore very pleased to enter into a long-term partnership with Nestlé – Netherlands. Nestlé – Netherlands wishes to have a single partner for all its distribution channels. This ‘Omni channel approach’, in which all logistic flows are managed centrally, is gaining importance in the fast changing consumer landscape. We have proven our ability to reliably and effectively operate all channels from the same logistics concept, and to anticipate changes promptly. We thereby can provide Nestlé Netherlands with the right logistics solution,” says Diederick de Vroet, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Netherlands.
