Sennheiser entrusts worldwide logistics to Arvato
Guetersloh / Wennebostel (Germany). On 21 January 2014, Arvato will begin 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 premises in Gütersloh.
“We are very pleased to have found, in Arvato, a business partner who can deliver the solutions we need for our global logistics,” said Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, CEO of the Sennheiser Group. Arvato will begin by taking over logistics for Sennheiser in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa), to be followed a few months later by North and South America and Asia.

Sixty employees work in the 10,000-square foot warehouse and distribution hall on Arvato’s "An der Autobahn" premises. Construction began in May 2013, and was completed last November.
