Kuehne + Nagel Mexico manages spare parts warehousing for Toyota
Operating out of the new Cuautitlan distribution centre in the north of Mexico City, Kuehne + Nagel is initially dedicating around 6,000 square metres (65,000 sqft) of warehouse space to Toyota. Services include goods receiving, inventory control, pick & pack, special handling of hazardous material and order preparation. The carmaker plans to supply all Mexico-based dealers from the location.
To ensure highest service and productivity levels for the large number and variety of items handled, a total quality and continuous improvement program will be implemented by both companies. Robert D. Weldon Jr., CEO of Toyota Mexico, said, “Among other things, we selected Kuehne + Nagel because the company shares our philosophy of continuous improvement, which greatly facilitates teamwork between the two partners.”
Ferdinand Kurt, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel Mexico, said, “We are very pleased to be awarded this contract by Toyota, which recognises Kuehne + Nagel’s industry-specific sales structure and further enhances our automotive expertise. I am sure the professionals of both companies will contribute to the success of this new relationship.
