Starting Situation

Viessmann Group is present in all of Europe, with each market having its own requirements towards logistic services. For all markets, efficient and reliable logistic processes are substantial. “On time full-in” delivery is Viessmann’s highest priority.

Solution

In spring 2011, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics took over operation of the Northern Regional Warehouse for Viessmann. The company's products are held at the Lehrte site and delivered to the other transshipment points in northern Germany or the market partners as required. In May 2012, the distribution center in Lichfield, UK, was opened. Here, Viessmann products are stored and then delivered to Viessmann's British customers. Hellmann also handles the warehouse replenishment transports from the plant in Allendorf. Thus, the entire supply chain for Great Britain is handled by Hellmann. Since May 2013, the cooperation has been extended to the Polish market. Viessmann products are sent on their way from a Hellmann warehouse in the Warsaw region to their subsequent places of use. Also here Hellmann is responsible for the entire transport management. Since January 2021, Hellmann has also taken over the management of a warehouse in Vilnius and ensures reliable deliveries to Viessmann customers in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
