Globus, the hypermarket chain in Germany, the Czech Republic and Russia, has selected Kuehne + Nagel to handle the import of goods and the supply of stores.
Kuehne + Nagel will be providing door-to-door sea freight and overland services for goods originating from Bulgaria, China, Germany, Italy and Thailand.
It will also be in charge for all customs clearance operations in Russia. Globus has decided to outsource all those activities to focus on the extension of its hypermarket network and increase the range of imported products.
“Partnering with Kuehne + Nagel will support us to reach the goals we have set, including the opening of two new hypermarkets in the Moscow area and in one of the neighbouring regions by 2014. Furthermore, in the long term, we plan to launch two new hypermarkets a year in Russia,” the company said.
