Maschio Gaspardo has chosen Kuehne + Nagel for a consulting project aimed at redefining the operational and strategic set up of its global supply chain of replacement parts.

Thanks to its proven ability and skill and to its international know-how in the replacement parts sector, Kuehne + Nagel has developed a personalized and ad hoc selection for Maschio Gaspardo's supply chain, built on four principles: strategy for the reduction of spares, rationalization of transport logistics, simplification of order types, and centralization and standardization of IT.

The new supply chain model for replacement parts allows Maschio Gaspardo to enjoy financial benefits on various levels.

Thanks to this project, Kuehne + Nagel and Maschio Gaspardo were awarded a Special Mention at the most recent edition of the "Logistic of the Year" award ceremony, which took place in Milan on 20 October.

"Customer satisfaction has always been a strategic objective of the Maschio Gaspardo Group," stated Luigi Casetta, Chief Service Officer of the Maschio Gaspardo Group. "The new supply chain model for replacement parts, designed together with Kuehne + Nagel, allows us to provide our end clients with excellent service while keeping machine downtime to a minimum. This thanks to greater availability of replacement parts and shorter delivery times."

“We are proud that Maschio Gaspardo has chosen us to redesign their supply chain for replacement parts. The true prize is not only confidence in our skills and abilities, but the additional incentive to continue developing innovative solutions that efficiently support our clients in their daily lives," stated Ruggero Poli, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Italy.
