Nagel wins new customer
The Danish company, DK-Konfekture K/S from Herlev, is a new customer of Nagel Danmark, a subsidiary of the Nagel Group. The food logistics specialist has taken over warehouse management and order picking as well as transport and distribution in Denmark for the confectionery distributorship, whose customers include Ritter Sport, Katjes and Fazer.
“The product experience and expertise in the sector resulting from Nagel’s existing co-operation with Ritter Sport and other confectionery manufacturers were decisive in the awarding of the contract. Moreover, the company was able to arrange a dedicated warehouse exclusively for confectionery at short notice in accordance with our guidelines,” says Dan Kongstedt, the founder and managing director of DK-Konfekture.
After awarding the contract in mid-December, Nagel Danmark was consequently able to start the operational implementation as early as the beginning of 2015. The current annual amount of 23,000 pallets will be processed in Padborg, the headquarters of Nagel Danmark. Around 3,000 square metres of warehousing space with a temperature range of plus 12 to 15 degrees will be used there for the task. “Our remit also includes packing and co-packing” Kim Gravesen, the CEO of Nagel Danmark explains.
Nagel Danmark can draw upon an effective network. The company is represented by two sites and three depots in Denmark and offers more than 47,000 square metres of warehousing space in total. In addition to 500 trailers, the fresh goods logistics specialist has its own trucks, of which 45 are deployed nationally and 95 internationally on a daily basis.
Dan Kongstedt says: “Our customers are very pleased with the on schedule delivery. Everything is working smoothly.”
