Kuehne & Nagel has been awarded a 3-year contract by global consumer electronics manufacturer Samsung to manage warehousing and distribution across Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
The agreement applies to Samsung's core product ranges, including consumer electronics, telecom and household appliance items. Shipments arrive at Kuehne + Nagel's Riga warehouse from suppliers across Europe and the Far East, where services encompass inbound reception (packaging and seal-integration checks), storage, pick-and-pack activities per EDI orders, and distribution to local Samsung trade partners. Value-added services include mobile phone serial number management, as well as secure storage and delivery of high-value products. Kuehne & Nagel has dedicated a special area of the warehouse to the operation.
"We have been seeing very dynamic development across the Baltics, calling for a reconsideration of our logistics concept," says Zinaida Kim, logistics manager for Samsung Electronics in the Baltics. "Kuehne & Nagel, with its profound industry experience and ability to grow the scope of its service in line with our objectives in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, is the right partner for us."
