Cooper Tire Europe opens new Fulfilment Centre in Hamburg

Wednesday 29 June 2016

Cooper Tire Europe has opened a new European Fulfilment Centre (EFC) located in Hamburg, Germany, to serve customers throughout Europe and Scandinavia.
The facility is fully operational with the capacity to stock hundreds of thousands of units, including all of the latest high performance tyres under the Cooper, Avon and Starfire brand names. Situated by a motorway and just 18 kilometres from the nearest port, Cooper Tire Europe has secured an ideal location to enhance speed of delivery to customers in the region. Products stocked at the EFC are sourced from Europe, Asia and the United States.
Jeff Schumaker, Managing Director, Cooper Tire Europe, said, “We have partnered with a world-class third-party logistics provider, Fiege, to commission the new EFC in Hamburg. Having a warehouse located in Germany enables us to improve delivery and service levels to our customers by increasing the speed of getting tyres into the market. We are delighted to have officially opened this new facility, which we expect will immediately benefit customers in Europe and Scandinavia with faster product delivery.”
