FlexLink extends supply chain management agreement with Kuehne + Nagel

FlexLink, one of the world’s leading suppliers of flexible, modular conveyors and industrial automation equipment, has extended the contract with Kuehne + Nagel as its exclusive logistics and transport service provider for the next two years.

Within the scope of the cooperation, which started in 2012, Kuehne + Nagel will continue to manage all international transports for FlexLink from their global hub in Poznan. The company will provide air and sea transportation services to more than 30 destinations worldwide, as well as part load and groupage overland services across Europe.

Tobias Jerschke, National Manager of Kuehne + Nagel in Poland, explains: “Our cooperation with FlexLink is a good example of how integrated logistics from a single source adds value to our customer’s supply chain. Based on our experience and high quality service we are sure that the extended cooperation will lead to further increases in FlexLink’s efficiency.”
