(PresseBox) ( Johannesburg, )
Kuehne + Nagel has been awarded a contract to manage the BMW South Africa Parts and Accessories Distribution Centre in Midrand. From the facility, parts are distributed to the whole of South Africa as well as to five neighbouring countries.

At the end of 2008, Kuehne + Nagel was awarded a contract to manage part of the BMWoperated logistics facility in Midrand. After this successful transition, the decision to outsource the entire Midrand distribution operation was made by the Management Board of BMW South Africa.

Following a rigorous tender process, Kuehne + Nagel was awarded a threeyear contract to manage the entire national parts distribution centre.

The scope of services that Kuehne + Nagel will be providing consists of receiving, inventory control, picking & packing, handling of dangerous goods and valueadded services, such as prepackaging and returns handling of BMW automotive parts and accessories.

The 16,500 sqm facility is owned by BMW and holds around 50,000 stockkeeping units. After the current implementation phase Kuehne + Nagel will cooperate with BMW on the continuous improvement of the car manufacturer's supply chain processes in order to increase productivity and improve cost efficiency, introducing new tools such as the Kuehne + Nagel Production System.

This important business extension is further evidence of the strong partnership with the BMW Group on a global level. Kuehne + Nagel currently provides services from inbound to production and aftermarket logistics as well as reverse logistics in five countries, at twelve different locations, for the BMW Group.

Andre van Rensburg, National Manager of Kuehne + Nagel South Africa, comments, "We are honoured that BMW has awarded the complete outsourcing of yet another of its facilities to Kuehne + Nagel and has placed its trust in our portfolio of integrated services. We believe these services will greatly benefit the continuous optimisation of BMW's supply chain."
