Volkswagen has chosen DHL Supply Chain for a major part of the in-plant logistics at its assembly plant in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Under the five-year contract some 800 DHL employees will manage in-plant logistics for 50 per cent of the production materials. This involves engines, gearboxes and windscreens for the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg.
Services provided will include inbound receiving, put away and storage, picking and kitting, sequencing and line-side deliveries directly to the Volkswagen production lines.
“Logistics are essential in vehicle manufacturing. DHL has convinced us due to its innovative concepts and a supply chain solution tailored exactly to our needs,” said Juraj Janá, head of logistics with Volkswagen in Bratislava.
