BMW has signed a contract with logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel for the management of its service parts facility at Bruckberg–Gündlkofen (pictured), near Landshut, northeast of Munich, Germany. From the 144,000 sq.m centre, Kuehne + Nagel will support car and motorcycle spare parts distribution.
The facility includes more than 610,000 storage slots for small parts and 16,000 shelf spaces for mesh boxes. Around 80,000 more shelf spaces are being put into operation in coming months, according to BMW.
Kuehne + Nagel will be handling 300,000 different parts and managing 50 truckloads in and out of the facility on a daily basis.
The logistics provider already has a number of agreements with BMW in Germany. It has been providing services for the OEM since 1999 and operates a number of logistics centres for it. At its supply centre in Wörth, for example, the company handles the distribution of parts inbound to BMW’s Dingolfing, Landshut and Leipzig plants.
In November last year, meanwhile, it started providing services for BMW’s complex spare parts logistics operations at the carmaker’s central distribution centre (CDC) in Bavaria. The centre handles parts for onward supply to BMW’s regional distribution centres worldwide, which in turn deliver to local authorised BMW dealers in individual countries.
