Kuehne+Nagel in Poland has signed a multi-year contract with Huel, a producer of nutritionally complete food. The dedicated Kuehne+Nagel distribution center located in Święcice near Warsaw will receive Huel’s products from its European manufacturing sites and provide storage, picking and packaging goods for further door-to-door distribution to twelve European countries.

"In recent years, Kuehne+Nagel has been developing e-commerce services around the world. The dynamic development of this sector on the Polish market is an opportunity to demonstrate our ability to meet logistics needs, especially for dynamically growing companies as Huel. To allow effective service in all twelve European markets, we have created a dedicated order management system, which is directly connected to Huel's e-shop. We are glad that we can support developing Huel’s business,” says Christophe Le Corre, Contract Logistics Director at Kuehne+Nagel Poland.
