4Kraft and Bleckmann expand their partnership
Bleckmann is proud to announce that our customer 4Kraft has once again chosen Bleckmann as a logistics service provider, which resulted in an extension of the contract for the period of the next 5 years. We will continue to deliver on the promises of the 4Kraft, supporting their booming business and facilitating the success of the customer’s brand Kinderkraft across Europe.
The collaboration between Bleckmann and 4Kraft dates originally back to 2015. Founded in Poland in 2011, 4Kraft is an international brand for children’s products with the best features combining quality, technical solutions & modern design and focus on safety, customer confidence, and innovations. The company has been experiencing rapid growth, offering their products via multiple distribution channels including online sales. To support their current and future ambitions 4Kraft was looking for the most effective warehouse and delivery services across Europe. As a market leader in supply chain solutions for the Fashion & Lifestyle market segments, Bleckmann was selected as the 3PL partner of choice to enable the growth of 4Kraft business volume.
Today, Bleckmann and 4Kraft extend and renew this successful collaboration.
Bleckmann will continue to perform omni-channel warehousing and distribution services to meet the expectations of 4Kraft customers, with specific focus on e-commerce. As a result of the contract extension all operations will be managed from two Bleckmann warehouse facilities in Belgium and The United Kingdom.
In order to enable the customer’s growth in continental Europe, Bleckmann will move the Belgium based operations to the recently opened distribution center in Rieme, providing even higher flexibility.
