Global Logistics Solutions for Sennheiser
We are very pleased to have found, in Arvato, a business partner who can deliver the solutions we need for our global logistics.Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, Sennheiser Group CEO
Sennheiser was looking for a new partner to not only take over its global logistics and distribution but one that could also offer a globally standardized system landscape. All Arvato central lager warehouses work a on a standardized SAP client with standardized processes, enabling global inventory control and compliance with quality standards.
On 21 January 2014, Arvato began to gradually take over worldwide
logistics for products manufactured by the Sennheiser group. Against this
backdrop, Arvato CEO Achim Berg and the entrepreneur Dr. Andreas Sennheiser
inaugurated a logistics hall, built specifically for this purpose on Arvato’s Gütersloh premises.
60 employees work in the 10,000 square meter warehouse and distribution
hall on Arvato’s "An der Autobahn" premises. Construction began in May 2013,
and was completed last November.
A few months later, Arvato opened new logistics centers for Sennheiser in Hong Kong and the US.
The establishment of three distribution centers in Europe, Asia and the USA with a global SAP platform, ensured streamlined processes and maximum control of global inventories, as well as optimized replenishment processes for Sennheiser. As international sales peaks are not unusual for Sennheiser, this calls for a high degree of flexibility and strict quality standards in order to manage fluctuating volumes. Furthermore, Arvato offers Sennheiser and its customers a tracking and tracing system, complaints processing, transport performance monitoring and cycles, as well as processing customs and shipping documents.
