LBR Staff Writer Published 06 April 2018

Mainfreight Europe has secured a contract from Henkel to provide warehousing and co-packing services in the Benelux region.

From January 2019, Mainfreight’s warehouse, which is located in Zaltbomme of the Netherlands, will provide a range of services.

The facility will be used to carry out storage and order picking processes and various value-adding activities such as the execution of multi-packs and display building.

Major portion of the co-packing services will be carried out by team members with a distance to the labor market, demonstrating the corporate social responsibility efforts of Henkel and Mainfreight.
