Kuehne + Nagel provides co-packing services for Unilever in Romania

Bucharest / RO, March 10, 2011 – Unilever Supply Chain Company AG (USCC), the European supply chain organisation of consumer goods major Unilever, has expanded its cooperation with Kuehne + Nagel in Romania and assigned its co-packing activities to the logistics provider.

Since 2010, Kuehne + Nagel has been managing warehousing operations for Unilever’s home and personal care (HPC) product range in South Eastern Europe in a newly commissioned facility in Ploiesti.

“Kuehne + Nagel has succeeded in a relatively short time to integrate its co-packing service offered to Unilever South Central Europe (USCE). Co-packing is strategically important because it enables us to customise our portfolio according to the specific requirements of our customers. Kuehne + Nagel achieves top quality standards and we are confident that this is just the beginning of a long and successful partnership,” said Radu Ghiurca, Supply Chain Project Manager USCE.

“We are very proud that due to the successful implementation of the warehousing operation Unilever selected us to provide value added services for their home and personal care products,” said Damian Raczynski, National Manager Contract Logistics at Kuehne + Nagel in Romania. “The project not only encompasses manual repacking operations, but also involved a considerable investment in automation.”
