Kawasaki picks Gefco for motorcycle distribution


Kawasaki has chosen Gefco for warehousing and distribution of its motorbikes, jet skis, all terrain 4-wheel vehicles and power products that include hedge trimmers, grass cutters and strimmers.

Vehicles will be delivered to Gefco’s logistics site at Coventry where they will be stored under bond in a dedicated area. They will then be distributed to dealerships using Gefco’s shared user 2Wheeler network.

Kawasaki’s Anton La Grouw said: “Gefco has proven expertise of working in the 2Wheeler industry and we are very happy with the new arrangement. Not only does Gefco offer a cost effective solution to house and distribute our vehicles throughout the UK, but they also have the ability to adapt and grow according to our needs.”

Chris Arnold, UK Network Logistics Director at Gefco said: “As a result of the agreement we have been able to increase our fleet utilisation which now operates more efficiently and we have also seen our warehouse capacity increase by 20 per cent.”
