Imperial takes on automotive packaging facility

8 April, 22

Automotive logistics specialist Imperial has been appointed to manage BMW’s packaging facility at Leipzig (Germany) from April 2022.

The facility handles supplies of components for BMW’s overseas plants in China and Mexico, where various models are assembled. The packaging operation receives incoming goods and production materials ranging from screws to complete engines, including dangerous goods. The Leipzig site processes around one hundred 40-foot high-cube containers of exports daily.

“We have been working for BMW for many years, and managing their warehousing in Wallersdorf since 2016,” says Hakan Bicil, CEO of Imperial’s International business. “I am absolutely thrilled that BMW is now entrusting us with their packaging operations in Leipzig. We look forward to further supporting their logistics operations and adapting these to the changing markets of the future.”
