Weber signs contract with Kuehne + Nagel

As a result of the successful integration of ACR Logistics into Kuehne + Nagel’s North West Europe region, Weber-Stephen Products Co, a leading

manufacturer of barbecues and gas grills, has awarded the company a contract to provide the management of inbound

freight from USA and the Far East, as well as warehousing services in the UK.

Press Release

Under the three year contract Kuehne + Nagel is supplying a dedicated warehouse service, within a shared user operation at its Dagenham site. Services include goods receipt, order picking and customer delivery for Weber’s high value gas grills, barbecues, associated accessories and spares. At the same time Weber will benefit from full

visibility of all inventory levels via the internet, and shared use of

warehouse personnel and transport operations during peak season.

Weber has been developing its business in the UK, and prides itself on

the quality of its products and customer service. The complete end to end supply chain solution offered by Kuehne + Nagel, with full visibility

throughout and a dedicated account management team, will enable Weber to improve its customer service further by offering shorter lead times and increased product availability.

Janet Ellison, Managing Director of Weber UK, comments “In Kuehne + Nagel we have chosen a professional logistics partner who we are confident will provide a solid platform for our continued growth.”

“We are looking forward to forming a close working partnership with

Weber in the future,“ says Peter Ulber, Chief Executive for Kuehne + Nagel’s North West Europe Region. “Being awarded this contract is further proof of our position as the leading provider of supply chain services, with the ability to deliver real and innovative end to end solutions. This capability clearly differentiates Kuehne + Nagel from

the more traditional players in the market.”
