Contract logistics for wind turbines
Danish Vestas, a provider of sustainable energy that specialises in the manufacture, installation and servicing of wind turbines, has hired Hellmann Worldwide for its contract logistics operations. Under the agreement, the Germany-headquartered company has taken over the management of Vestas' spare part distribution centre for North America.
Operating out of a 40,000 sqm warehouse in Houston, Hellmann organises time-critical supplies of spare parts and components for Vestas’ existing and new wind farms in USA and Canada.
The inventory parts range from small scale parts such as electronic components, hazardous material including batteries and lubricants to large turbine components. Hellmann’s service portfolio includes inventory management, kitting, load consolidation as well as pick, pack and ship operations for outgoing orders. (sh)
