Shipping News Feature HUNGARY – Kuehne + Nagel has officially opened its new distribution centre near Budapest. The facility will provide next-day deliveries to Eastern Europe and offer significant lead time reductions to the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul LLC, has agreed to a multi-year contract with the Swiss headquartered freight forwarding and logistics giant to operate its new automotive replacement parts distribution centre in Hungary.

Located in Páty, 22 kilometres west of Budapest, the state-of-the art warehouse has a 23,000m2 storage area and offers a full range of inventories for its target markets. The facility will employ more than 160 people and has the potential to be expanded to support volume growth or changing trading profiles.

Under the terms of the contract, Kuehne + Nagel will operate the facility, providing contract logistics services, such as warehouse services, receipt of goods and pick and pack operations, plus value-added services including labelling and kitting in customer-specific product configurations. Gianfranco Sgro, member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International, responsible for Contract Logistics, said:
