Toyo Tires renews its logistics contract with Fiege
The Japanese tire maker, Toyo Tires, has agreed a multi-year renewal of its logistics contract with Fiege. Fiege has been overseeing the supply chain for Toyo Tires Europe in Germany and Austria since 2006. Since 2011, Fiege has also been supplying Benelux countries with tires made by Toyo. Fiege’s Dortmund facility warehouses the full portfolio of Toyo products.
Fiege supplies especially the replacement market from Dortmund. Wholesalers and specialised retailers receive their orders within 24 hours. In the Netherlands, tires are at times delivered even at night. In addition to supplying certain original equipment suppliers in Dortmund, Fiege also oversees the processing of tires ordered online via Toyo’s online shop.
Toyo developed the multi-lingual B2B online shop together with Fiege’s eCommerce department in 2011. “At the time, Toyo was one of our first tyres clients to approach its customers with its own online store”, says Stephan Wittenbrink, Managing Director Tires Logistics at Fiege. In the meantime, Toyo has updated and advanced its e-tailing outlet several times, making it an important sales channel for Toyo.
The Fiege Group, headquartered in Greven/Germany, is one of Europe’s leading logistics providers. Its competence lies particularly in the development and implementation of integrated supply chain systems, and it is considered a pioneer of contract logistics. In 2016, the group generated a turnover of EUR 1.45 billion world-wide with a workforce of 12,338. 178 locations with 2.8 million m² of warehouse and logistics space and co-operations based in 15 countries form a dense supply-chain network.
