Hellmann expands contract logistics services for Claas | New

Claas manufactures agricultural machinery for the global market. It commissioned the Oelde site in 2018.

Hellmann begins operations on a 9,000 sqm footprint, but full operations on twice that space are expected to be complete by the end of the year when a second phase of construction is complete.

Hellmann receives a wide range of parts from suppliers in China, India and Turkey, where they are stored, packed and prepared before being transported to the production plant, which is approximately 18 km away, several times a day. .

“For years, Hellmann has been an important and strategic partner in our European ground transportation and our global air and ocean freight,” said Bastian Linnenbrink, Head of Supply Chain Management for Claas Self- Propelled Harvesters. He explained that the new business in Oelde expanded the warehousing services that Hellmann provided to Claas to include picking and sequencing. Hellmann has been providing logistics services to Claas for ten years.

“Hellmann is thus an important part of our supply chain and our immediate production supply. We are excited to shape growth together at the new Oelde site, accompanied by significant process improvements,” said Linnenbrink.

The new facility in Oelde also features the latest warehouse technology and has been built to be sustainable, including a 9,000 m² photovoltaic system on the roof of the hall to cover part of the facility’s energy needs.

“With the new warehouse, we will be able to sustainably … continue our growth with Claas and … create and secure jobs in the region,” said Volker Sauerborn, Managing Director Contract Logistics at Hellmann.
