Magna pick K+N for inbound logistics

Magna Exteriors & Interiors, the supplier of exterior vehicle appearance systems to the automotive industry, is outsourcing the entire inbound logistics for its production site in Kaluga as well as parts of its outbound transport to Kuehne + Nagel.

Kuehne + Nagel will co-ordinate and transport shipments from all European suppliers to a consolidation centre in Chemnitz, Germany.

From there, Kuehne + Nagel will manage the entire just-in-sequence delivery to the Kaluga production site. In addition to warehouse management and parts consolidation in line with the production process, Kuehne + Nagel’s services also include export handling, as well as daily overland transport from Chemnitz to Kaluga.

“The Russian market is one of Magna Europe’s strategic targets. Leveraging Kuehne + Nagel’s many years of industry know-how, we see a potential in the further co-operation,” said Joerg Blechinger, logistics manager for Magna Europe.
