Kuehne + Nagel and GSK extends partnership for domestic distribution contract in UK

May 18, 2017: Kuehne + Nagel have now secured the contract to manage the domestic road distribution of all GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s (GSK) fast moving consumer and healthcare goods throughout the UK.

Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for the main inbound supply route from specific UK sites and the final mile delivery of all subsequent outbound shipments. This new agreement expands Kuehne + Nagel and GSK’s collaboration, comprising air, sea, overland services and Logistics Control Centers, having already signed a five-year end-to-end global logistics partnership in 2016. In the scope of this successfully implemented partnership, Kuehne + Nagel run the core business of transporting products from the raw materials supplier to trade customers for GSK.

“Following the successful deployment of the air and sea freight operations into Kuehne + Nagel during 2016 as part of the end-to-end partnership with GSK, we are very pleased to now be awarded the overland distribution business, especially in the UK where the GSK journey began. By understanding the challenges facing customers and the increasing execution compliance standards required in the market, we offer GSK tailor-made solutions that provide a competitive advantage through supply chain efficiency. This expanded partnership will enable GSK to continue to develop and deliver their services, facilitating continued global growth through effective distribution of their fast moving consumer and healthcare goods across the UK. The new cooperation highlights Kuehne + Nagel’s continued commitment to the pharma and healthcare industry, which is of strategical importance for us, strengthening our position as the market leader.” said Marcus Bennett, national manager, Kuehne + Nagel UK.
