BMW picks Kuehne + Nagel for spares logistics

BMW has chosen Kuehne + Nagel to manage a range of services for spare parts logistics.

K+N will support BMW in the implementation of a new structure for its complex spare parts logistics at the central distribution centre (CDC) in Bavaria.

This provides parts to regional distribution centres worldwide, which in turn ensure delivery to local authorised BMW dealers in individual countries.

Kuehne + Nagel will gradually take over operations at three CDC locations in Lower Bavaria from November. In addition to goods receiving activities, the control and packing of spare parts are included in the scope of service. K+N will also be responsible for storage, commissioning and outgoing goods.

“This new contract with BMW Group underlines our comprehensive expertise, especially within the complex area of spare parts logistics. We are very pleased to expand our partnership with BMW Group,” said Jens Wollesen of Kuehne + Nagel.
