Global logistics provider, Agility, has been awarded a five year contract by Henkel China to be the exclusive logistics partner for its mega HUB project, known as ‘Project Dragon’. Project Dragon is designed to streamline Henkel’s manufacturing in China to cover growth over the next 10 years and to leverage significant economies of scale in manufacturing and supply chain processes. The contract will start in 2013 and Agility will be providing services ranging from inbound logistics, warehousing of raw material and finished goods, production supply and clearance and outbound logistics. Agility said it was selected on the basis of its proven capabilities and reach, as well as its strong understanding of the region’s logistics landscape. “The early involvement of Agility is key to the success of Project Dragon, and will help ensure the best operational setup,” said said Patrick Westkamp, Asia Pacific leader for Purchasing Logistics at Henkel. “In Agility we have found a partner who can support us across the entire logistics supply chain and in the design and planning phase of the new facility.” “This win is further recognition of Agility’s regional expertise, its specialty capability, solutions and assets – and how these can be leveraged to support the growth of a large multinational within emerging markets,” said James Gagne, Agility CEO, Greater China Area.
