Heineken UK awards new contract to Kuehne + Nagel

Dutch brewer Heineken has awarded KN Drinks Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel’s wholly owned drinks distribution subsidiary, a new contract to carry out imports from Europe and primary distribution in the UK. Heineken, one of the world’s leading international brewers and one of the fastest growing brands in the UK with a portfolio which includes recognised names such as Heineken, Amstel and Moretti, has signed a new agreement with KN Drinks Logistics which encompasses the import and distribution of packaged products.

Under the terms of the contract, KN Drinks Logistics will transport Heineken products from the breweries in The Netherlands to the UK via road and short-sea shipping. Products will be stored in the KN Drinks Logistics hub at Hams Hall in the Midlands, and primary and off-trade deliveries will be carried out across the UK via the Company’s shared user distribution network.

The contract also incorporates a reverse logistics solution, whereby KN Drinks Logistics will manage the return of all empty kegs back to the point of origin in The Netherlands.

Heineken selected KN Drinks Logistics as the Company proved it can offer the brewer the capacity and flexibility it needs to cope with the strong growth of its brands. Additionally, its positioning within the Kuehne + Nagel Group means it has expertise which covers the entire supply chain which ensures Heineken can provide excellent service to its customers.
