Oslo, Norway, March 15, 2010 – Vectura AS, the leading supplier of logistics services for producers, agents and importers of wine and spirits in Norway, has signed a three-year agreement to outsource warehousing and distribution activities at its Trondheim site to Kuehne + Nagel.
Kuehne + Nagel will manage the 8,000 sqm facility which currently handles 11 million units per annum and has over 3,700 active stock keeping units. In addition, Kuehne + Nagel will select and manage the transport carriers used to undertake all deliveries from the Trondheim warehouse.
Under the terms of the agreement, Kuehne + Nagel is able to benefit from additional warehouse and office capacity at Trondheim not currently utilised by the Vectura operation. This idle space will be used to expand Kuehne + Nagel’s network in Norway, offering warehousing, sea-, airand roadfreight services to new and existing customers.
Rolf Brustad, Managing Director of Vectura, says, “Kuehne + Nagel is a professional logistics company that will continue to provide excellent service and effective solutions for our customers to further develop our business and market share.”
“This opportunity enables Kuehne + Nagel to generate value for Vectura’s supply chain whilst developing our service offering to customers in the Trondheim area,” explains Yngve Ruud, National Manager for Kuehne + Nagel in Norway. “By establishing a sustainable business at the site which will exist beyond Vectura’s planned exit of Trondheim in 2013, Kuehne + Nagel is also able to preserve the jobs of the 22 employees currently working there.”
