BLG takes over parts of the plant logistics management for BMW

BLG LOGISTICS has been managing parts of  the logistics for the BMW plant in Leipzig since January 1, 2016. The company performs services along the entire supply chain from receiving to warehouse management, sequencing and order picking as well as line supply all the way to handling empties on approx. 200,000 square meters at its client’s plant. BLG manages the supply of the carmaker’s conventional models at the Leipzig site. The processing volume encompasses all parts for a daily production.

“We are delighted to have received the contract award from BMW in Leipzig and thus be able to expand business relations with our client. The exceptional challenge of this job is the fact that we became involved in the framework of existing procedures and had to implement our services during the running processes. For this purpose we sent a 16-member project team to Leipzig for several weeks to guarantee a successful rollout,” states Robert Bommers, Managing Director of BLG Industrial Logistics. “Our success in these efforts is also due to a great extent to the employees on site, who continued to reliably manage all processes after the changeover of various IT components,” adds Bommers.

Since 2012 BLG Industrial Logistics has been handling material supply in Wackersdorf for client BMW’s foreign production sites. For the logistics specialist the assumption of parts of the plant logistics management in Leipzig not only means expansion of  business relations with BMW, but also strengthening of BLG’s presence in eastern Germany.
