Vestas creates a more scalable supply chain organisation in the EMEA region by outsourcing warehouse operations for spare parts and service tools to logistics supplier DB Schenker.
As part of establishing this change 22 local warehouses will be closed and the new spare parts network will be mainly organised by one central warehouse in Germany (Grimma near Leipzig), and three area warehouses in Romania (Bucharest), Spain (Ourense) and Sweden (Umeå) In addition approximately 75 emergency stock locations will be established throughout the EMEA region to secure two-three hour service for turbine spare part orders. External logistics providers will operate these stock locations. Vestas has 150 employees working with the daily operation of spare parts & tools in warehousing in the EMEA region and will adjust the workforce in the warehouses primarily by working to transfer employees to DB Schenker in similar positions or looking for other possibilities within Vestas wherever possible. Tools for construction operations for Vestas’ Northern Europe and Offshore business units will remain handled by Vestas.
