Electrolux has signed a European transport deal worth 75 million euros with Waberer’s International, the Budapest-based transport operator.
The three year deal means Waberer’s will remain Electrolux’s largest road freight provider. As well as transporting Hungarian manufactured Lehel fridges to EU markets, it handles movements between Electrolux’s German, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Swedish, French, Finnish and British destinations.
Fredrik Nergell, Electrolux’s logistics & spares purchasing director EMEA, said: “Electrolux is taking the next evolutionary step in the long-term relationship with Waberer’s. We now have a firm commitment from Waberer’s to challenge our current logistics and actively help us improve our performance in the years to come.
“We are very excited about the service level that the expertise of Waberer’s can bring to our business. We are convinced this will bring value to both our companies instead of the traditional haggle over tariff each year that always have a loser in the end.”
Ferenc Lajkó, deputy CEO of Waberer’s International, said: “We transport 25,000 full truck loads annually, to six markets of Europe, and our truck-trailers complete around 30 million kilometres with the merchandise of Electrolux. As a result within the next three years we will service Electrolux with an even broader services palette to even higher standards.”
