Hellmann opens brand-new distribution centre in Indianapolis
Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has opened a brand-new distribution center in Indianapolis, USA, which was officially inaugurated on March 1.
From the new site, Hellmann handles all contract logistics services for its long-standing customer Endress+Hauser in North America. The approx. 50,000 sq. ft. distribution center, from where Endress+Hauser´s customers in the US and Canada are supplied, is a state-of-the-art new build in the ideal location just minutes from the client’s facility and from the airport.
Hellmann has been operating a consolidation and distribution center in Germany for the Swiss group Endress+Hauser since 2014, being responsible for the global supply of B2B markets. Based on the very successful cooperation, the two companies decided to expand their partnership overseas. In a first step, Hellmann took over large parts of the CL-business for Endress+Hauser in Mexico in May of last year. Since August 2022, the Germany-based service provider has also been handling all of Endress+Hauser’s contract logistics in North America from the new site in Indianapolis, including warehousing and cross-docking operations.
“We are very pleased that we can now support Endress+Hauser on its growth path also in the Americas. Thanks to the long-standing and very trustful cooperation, our two teams have been able to realize a smooth start in Indianapolis and I am convinced that we will continue to expand together in the years to come,” says Volker Sauerborn, Chief Operating Officer Contract Logistics, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
