PepsiCo expands cooperation with DB Schenker Logistics in Poland

(Berlin/Warsaw, September 5, 2012) As part of the warehouse and distribution operations outsourcing maintained by PepsiCo, DB Schenker Logistics was selected as the operator of the four Regional Distribution Centres (RDCs) located in Warsaw, Łódź, Kraków and Kielce, with a total area of approximately 25,000 m2. The contract also covers management of about 50 transhipment platforms and transport from factories to the Regional Distribution Centres and then from the RDCs to the transhipment platforms.

“Our company focuses on continuous improvement and progress. We make every effort to ensure added value in the supply chain of our customers and strengthen their market position through our solutions, “- says Janusz Górski, CEO of Schenker Sp. z o.o.

Through the combination of the distributed network of warehouses for various products of the customer into a single distribution system, PepsiCo will be able to use its resources much better and respond to the changing needs of the market faster, yet optimizing the costs throughout the supply chain.

At the beginning of July, the first RDC was opened in Łódź, and next locations will be implemented in the coming months.

“Cooperation with PepsiCo is another major logistic project carried out by our company,” says Dariusz Doroś, Head of Warehouse Logistics, Schenker Sp. z o.o. “This is a significant extension of our cooperation; so far the cooperation has covered smaller warehouse operations in Łódź, Białystok and Gliwice. We are glad that we could make a contribution to the preparation of the optimal supply chain model for the combined business of PepsiCo and that we can support the business development of this customer in Poland with the potential of DB Schenker Logistics,” adds Dariusz Doroś.
