3PL+ logistics service provider Wim Bosman has signed a three year contract with Beiersdorf, the German cosmetics company based in Hamburg, to significantly expand the logistics activities in the Benelux.
Currently, Wim Bosman handles the distribution for the Benelux region from the distribution center in Hamburg. Beiersdorf has decided to move all warehousing activities for the Benelux to Wim Bosman in the Netherlands.
Wim Bosman will operate the warehousing activities, offering picking and packing services as well as additional VAS activities, e.g. based on customer requirements. The activities will be executed by a group of 35 team members.
Beiersdorf’s choice to collaborate with Wim Bosman in the challenging Benelux market is based on the current excellent delivery performance and the fact that Wim Bosman will manage Beiersdorf’s supply chain through smart and responsive solutions especially designed for Beiersdorf’s needs. The strategic location, the state of the art warehouses and systems and the collaborative attitude are the key points in this partnership.
