June 30, 2016: OSRAM and LEDVANCE, globally leading lighting manufacturers, select Kuehne + Nagel to manage their supply chain requirements in Brazil out of a newly built logistics centre in São Paulo.
OSRAM and LEDVANCE are strengthening their global partnership with Kuehne + Nagel through a new assignment in Brazil following the existing cooperation in Argentina and China.
Under a three year contract, Kuehne + Nagel signs responsible for the provision of warehousing services for OSRAM and LEDVANCE Brazil, including inbound and outbound operations as well as pick & pack of high sensitive products, such as lamps and luminaires.
A 6,300 m2 Kuehne + Nagel logistics centre, located in Embu das Artes in the greater São Paulo area, was specifically designed to offer the necessary infrastructure to store sensitive lighting products with maximum efficiency and security.
Everton Mello, CEO of OSRAM in Brazil, comments, “During a one year preparation time, together with Kuehne + Nagel we were able to build an efficient, hopefully long-lasting partnership to serve better our own customers. Now, that the new facility is fully operational, we can move on even faster and make everything work with a great logistics advantage.”
“This business win underlines our capacity to be a strong partner for global consumer goods manufacturers offering logistics solutions with integrated end-to-end supply chain management,” says Eduardo Razuck, managing director of Kuehne + Nagel Brazil.
