Tenneco, one of the leaders in automotive spare parts, has awarded Kuehne + Nagel a two-year contract to manage its national warehousing through three distribution centres across mainland China.
Kuehne + Nagel was selected due to strength of information systems and proven experience in automotive warehousing. To address Tenneco’s need for improved productivity and accuracy during periods of high volume, Kuehne + Nagel implemented an EDI-based solution. Other warehouse activities include inbound and receiving, inventory control and warehousing, fulfilment, returns and customer service integration. The first phase of the project involved the opening of a warehouse in Taicang, Jiangsu province, serving East China.
The Taicang warehouse consolidated all previous operations from a distribution centre in Shanghai. Additional warehouses in Guangzhou and Beijing serving South and North China respectively will open in the coming months.
