Kuehne + Nagel has clinched a major contract to manage GlaxoSmithKline’s UK road distribution of consumer and healthcare goods.

The operator will be responsible for the inbound supply route and the final-mile delivery of all subsequent outbound shipments for GSK.

This new agreement expands Kuehne + Nagel five-year end-to-end global air, sea and overland logistics partnership with GSK, which it signed in 2016.

Under the partnership Kuehne + Nagel operates the transportation of products from the raw materials supplier to trade customers for GSK.

Kuehne + Nagel UK national manager Marcus Bennett said: “Following the successful deployment of the air and sea freight operations into Kuehne + Nagel during 2016 as part of the end-to-end partnership with GSK, we are pleased to now be awarded the overland distribution business, especially in the UK where the GSK journey began.”
