Samsung signs Baltic States deal with K&N

Samsung, the global consumer electronics manufacturer, has awarded Kuehne + Nagel a three-year contract to manage its 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 & 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.
Zinaida Kim, logistics manager of Samsung Electronics in the Baltics: ‘We
have been seeing very dynamic development across the Baltics, calling for
a reconsideration of our logistics concept. 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.’
‘We are proud to have received this contract from Samsung. Over the last
few years, we have built up a highly professional contract logistics team in
the Baltics, and we were able to present Samsung with convincing, indepth
project implementation and staff training schedules during the
negotiation phase,’ comments Kuehne + Nagel’s Romuald Jaworkski,
contract logistics director Baltic States.
