Cooperation expanded – Gebrüder Weiss receives new order for the Zumtobel brand.
Gebrüder Weiss and the Zumtobel Group strengthen their cooperation. Since last year, the logistics group has been handling a large part of the distribution logistics from Vorarlberg to Eastern Europe for the Zumtobel brand. "Our two companies have already been doing business for over three decades. In the area of land transport, we have increased our operations over the last few years, for example in Italy and the United Kingdom. We are delighted to be able to cover the route to Eastern Europe, too, where we have a strong network of our own," says Michael Wohlgenannt, Branch Manager of Gebrüder Weiss Lauterach.
The contract was awarded on the basis of the high quality of service and flexibility offered by Gebrüder Weiss, combined with excellent conditions of delivery, such as for delivery to special building sites, delivery by appointment or long vehicle transports. "We have known Gebrüder Weiss for a long time. The relationship of trust which we have built up over the years makes processes run smoothly and that is exactly what is important to us. Of course, it is also a great advantage that the two corporate groups are geographically close together. Short routes, fast agreements – we really appreciate these things," says Helmut Kuhlmann, Director of Logistics at Zumtobel Lighting GmbH.
Quality leadership aspirations strengthen bond
Gebrüder Weiss is a logistics partner of the three internationally successful brands Zumtobel, Tridonic and Thorn, who are all part of the lighting company, Zumtobel Group. "We are united by our desire to be quality leaders in our respective businesses. This very aim is the reason why we understand exactly what the customer wants and proactively think ahead and plan in the customer's interest. This has resulted in a very effective and strong cooperation," says Jochen Humpeler, Corporate Key Account Manager for the Zumtobel Group at Gebrüder Weiss.
Transport orders are handled in Europe, Asia and Australia – by land, air and sea. For Tridonic, Gebrüder Weiss is responsible not only for the entire warehouse logistics at the Lauterach location, but also in the Asian cities of Singapore and Shanghai. There, the entire warehouse infrastructure is being converted according to European standards, from
paperless picking to packing and transport. State-of-the-art IT systems ensure that the data flow is secure and guarantee consistently high quality for all warehouse management and handling processes.
