Spain: new logistics hub inaugurated

Hub SpainBarcelona, February 2010: Pirelli Neumáticos España, S.A. can from today count on a new Logistics Hub at the Manresa factory (Spain) suited to the conduct of this new activity.

The hub, which began to be functional on 4 January, covers a total of 27,000 square metres and includes a new warehouse of 2,800 square metres and 19 loading and unloading bays. The site, run by 80 people, offers its services to all Pirelli’s clients in Spain and Portugal for all the divisions: car, truck and motorcycle and is capable of moving 250 tons of product per day.

To develop the new skills and manage the new responsibility, in December 2009 employees of the logistics, commercial, marketing and risk prevention departments held specific training courses for the hub’s personnel, over 80 people all of whom come from the old factory at Manresa.

In this way, after about 20 days all such personnel had taken part in lecture sessions on subjects such as: logistical distribution, managing competition tyres, risk prevention and safety, marketing and the range of products in order to improve their knowledge and abilities necessary to carry out their new tasks.

Through this new hub, Pirelli wishes to facilitate and optimise the logistical procedures of the company, improving in that way the service offered to clients in terms of rapidity and flexibility of operations and to always guarantee the availability of products of all ranges.

Said Adolfo Borgoñó, logistics manager, PINSA, “The new Manresa hub is a fundamental element in the logistics strategy of Pirelli at a world and European level, and will complete the existing network that exists in Egypt, China and Brazil. The new logistical hub is converting itself into a true logistical-distributive competence centre, where it will be possible to consolidate its know-how through the tests and development of logistical solutions which will be best suited to the tyre market”.
