Logistics for cats and dogs

Storing, picking & packing as well as building, filling and distributing displays: from its logistic centre in Kerpen, trans-o-flex organises a complete range of services for the Swiss pet food specialist Nash & Nunki

(PresseBox) (Weinheim, ) transoflex's subsidiary TT Tour-Trans has been selected by the Swiss pet food specialist Nash & Nunki AG to assume the storage and distribution of dog and cat food. Since 2008, Nash & Nunki AG, based in Sarnen, Switzerland, has been exclusively distributing the premium dog and cat food labels IAMS and Eukanuba for the American Procter & Gamble Group. Within the scope of this cooperation, transoflex is responsible for providing the complete range of services involved: stacking the several hundreds of different articles on approximately 2,000 pallets and storing them in its logistic centre in Kerpen near Cologne, managing the goods by batch and useby date as well as delivering them as parcels, LCL, partial or fulltruck load to the individual recipients. The customer base includes renowned companies, such as Fressnapf or Zooplus, as well as breeders and vets. In a second phase of this cooperation starting in the middle of this year, employees of transoflex will be building and filling sales displays for the Nash & Nunki AG and control the distribution. Last but not least,

"In addition to the mere procurement and distribution of goods, transoflex has always been a company that offers a wide range of additional logistic services", says Kai Schmuck, Managing Director of the transoflex Logistics Group. "By acquiring TT Tour-Trans, our longstanding partner specialising on contract logistics, in 2005 we managed to successfully integrate this service in our business and can, thus, realise for our customers integrated logistic solutions from a single source." In order to handle all processes as fast, reliably and efficiently as possible, transoflex, at the beginning of this year, invested in a new warehouse management and storage system that makes it possible to handle all processes in Kerpen without using any paper. The Windowsbased software is clientcapable and multilingual and communicates via interface with the customers' individual ERP systems, thus ensuring maximum transparency for all parties involved.
