Kuehne+Nagel has entered into a long-term strategic partnership with Pepco. The European-based company is a leading fast-growing retailer offering apparel for the entire family and household products at very low prices and has been present in the Romanian market since 2015.
Launching in 2023, the partnership with Pepco entails warehousing and automation services for the end-to-end distribution for Romania, Bulgaria and Greece with over 50.000 sqm of warehouse space. In addition, Kuehne+Nagel will also handle all the inbound storage, picking and loading of goods for the stores currently opened in the three countries. The site will employ over 250 people, and a top-of-the-line pusher sorter will assist with the day-to-day operations. The pusher sorter, with three conveyors, directs the different products, through 191 chutes and automated scanning tunnels, to the correct destination regardless of shape, size or material.
The warehouse not only meets Pepco’s need for agility and speed but also fulfils both companies’ plans for sustainable development, such as water and waste reduction initiatives. In addition, solar panels will provide energy for daily operations and reduce CO2 emissions.
“Pepco has grown tremendously in the last 22 years. Our combination of services, technology, sustainability commitment, and network perfectly meets the demands of this growing company by enabling seamless supply chain coverage. We are honoured that we can provide our full expertise to an important retailer such as Pepco,” says Filip Bardzinski, National Contract Logistics Manager in Romania.
