Contract logistics services provider Exel, a unit of DHL Logistics, has been selected by international food and beverage company Kraft Foods to provide warehousing services for Kraft’s ambient and temperature-controlled products in Brazil.
Exel will provide yard management, inventory control, invoicing, shipping, lot control, receiving, storage, and scheduling services at Kraft distribution centers in the Brazilian cities of Louveira, São Paulo, and Araucária, Paraná.
“We’re poised for growth in Latin America,” said Roberto Machado, director-customer service and logistics for Kraft. “Streamlining our warehouse operations in Brazil and improving speed to market throughout the region are two keys to making that happen, and the experience, regional presence, and IT solutions Exel brought to the table made them an ideal partner.”
The new locations opened in late 2006 and employ more than 280 from the Louveira and Araucária areas.
