The globally active logistics service provider Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and the manufacturer of closure solutions Silgan Closures EMEA have extended their ten-year collaboration. With the third extension of the contract, Hellmann, as a full-service provider in the field of contract logistics, will continue to coordinate the Europe-wide distribution and transport management for the world´s leading closure manufacturer.

Hellmann had already taken over the supply chain management at Silgan Closures EMEA in 2009 as part of a complex outsourcing project, and since then has been organizing the entire logistics as a 4PL provider from the Control Tower in Hanover. Hence, Hellmann controls and optimizes the entire intermodal transport chain within Europe as a neutral intermediary between Silgan Closures EMEA and various logistics service providers.

"We are pleased to have Hellmann by our side, as a very reliable partner who will take over the management of our entire logistics. With the know-how of Hellmann's experts, we have been able to optimize and set up our logistics more efficiently in recent years. Particularly noteworthy is the in-time rate, which at nearly 100%  is extraordinarily high, not only in comparison with the rest of the industry", says Nicolaj Meissner, Logistics Manager, Silgan Closures EMEA.

"For many companies, logistics is a "black box". That's why we at Hellmann focus on long-term partnerships, especially in the area of Contract Logistics and 4PL services. On this basis, we develop tailor-made logistics concepts which can be integrated organically into our customers' processes, and thus contribute to the overall success," explains Marc Wijnen, Chief Operating Officer Contract Logistics Europe, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
