Bibby to expand Euro ops for Kellogg

Bibby Distribution is expanding its European operations, in support of plans by Kellogg to increase its production capacity in Poland.

Bibby has operated Kellogg’s 141,000 sq ft Polish distribution centre in Kutno since July 2014. It currently has capacity for 8,000 pallets. In addition, it supports a Pringles factory located on the same site, managing exports across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Philip Winterhalder, Kellogg’s European transport manager, said: “We originally selected Bibby Distribution for our Kutno DC operation due to its competitive proposal and flexible approach. They had a previous track record of delivering flexible solutions through the operations they provide for us in the UK and we are pleased to have seen the same great service at Kutno.”

Bibby Distribution provides a full closed loop of support, bringing empty Pringles cans to the factory. Filled loads are then returned from the factory to the DC for full inventory management, including perpetual inventory counts and quality inspections before dispatch.
