Iveco renews K+N contract

Truck manufacturer Iveco has renewed its logistics contract with Kuehne + Nagel for a further period of three years.

K+N manages the majority of Iveco’s European aftermarket supply from five regional spare parts distribution centres in Turin in Italy, Langenau in Germany, Madrid in Spain, Trappes in France and Winsford in the UK.

It operates a total of 300,000 sq m of logistics space with between 80,000 to 160,000 SKUs per depot. Stock is distributed overnight by K+N’s automotive distribution network throughout Europe.

Under the contract, K+N will introduce a set of enhancements, such as RFID and pick-by-voice technologies. Restructuring measures will also be implemented to create an even more efficient and responsive supply chain for Iveco’s spare parts division on the basis of continuous improvement.

“Iveco Customer Service confirms its partnership with Kuehne + Nagel as a key lever to improve customer satisfaction and parts business profitability,” said Enzo Gioachin, Iveco’s senior vice president in charge of customer service.
