Nestrade SA, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Nestlé has awarded its Belgian distribution contract to DB Schenker.
Nestrade exportsNestlé products to emerging markets and provides regional business solutions such as supplying food products to travel channels and selling ethnic products.
“Nestrade was looking for a storage and transportation solution to support their business within Europe, Eastern Europe, and, to a smaller extent, worldwide, “ said Brigitte Lahey, logistics project manager, Schenker NV.
“Our logistics center in Willebroek was seen as the best location to handle the Nestrade business, as this site is specialized in food customers and is already managing the warehousing and distribution for Nestlé Belgilux.”
The DB Schenker Logistics centre in Willebroek is located on the Brussels–Antwerp axis, close to two major motorways. It handles fast moving consumer goods and is ideally located for making swift and daily deliveries.
It has already taken delivery of the first inbound container from Sri Lanka and the transfer of the stock from their previous provider has already taken place.
