JELD-WEN Germany commissions REICHHART Logistik to perform plant logistics at its Oettingen site
Gilching near Munich - REICHHART Logistik GmbH has been commissioned to oversee plant logistics activities for the renowned door manufacturer, JELD-WEN Germany. At the production site in Oettingen, the logistics service provider took over production distribution at the beginning of October, thus establishing itself in a new sector.
In future, REICHHART will be responsible for plant logistics activities involved in the distribution of almost four million parts per year over an area of almost 10,000 square metres. The logistics specialist takes the finished doors from the production lines, stores them and picks the goods required for customer orders. The logistics team then prepares the shipments and subsequently loads the doors for transport.
Professionalism, innovative approaches and flexibility were the keys to success
In addition to a customised logistics concept, the decisive factor in winning the contract was a focus on building a long-term partnership with prospects for further development. REICHHART was particularly convincing in this area, with its strategy of optimising shipping logistics on site using innovative approaches and agile processes. "We are delighted to be working with REICHHART as a very experienced and flexible partner, with which we can advance our plant logistics in the future", states Daniel Wenz, Head of SCP and Transport Central Europe at JELD-WEN Door Solutions.
Peter Lowet, Head of Business Development and Sales at REICHHART, adds: "By adding JELD-WEN as a new customer, we are not only expanding our range of industries, but can also optimally contribute our many years of know-how in the field of plant logistics. We were able to live up to our claim of offering customised logistics solutions in order to meet JELD-WEN's desired requirements. From REICHHART’s point of view, this marks a partnership-based cooperation with excellent future prospects. We are pleased about the success of the ramp-up and were delighted to welcome the new colleagues to the REICHHART team."
