Endress+Hauser opened a 48,000 ft2 regional logistics hub in Indianapolis, to boost fulfillment of customer orders.

In partnership with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Endress+Hauser will strengthen its logistics capabilities in terms of response time, throughput time and on-time delivery. The company, whose products are used to measure and monitor temperature, flow or pressure in the food and beverage, oil and gas, chemical, wastewater and metals industries, already operates regional hubs in Germany and in China. An additional regional hub is currently being built in India.

“Our regional logistics hub in Indianapolis will continue in serving our mission of reliably supplying customers with measurement and automation technology,” said Oliver Blum, corporate director of supply chain at Endress+Hauser. “Our logistics system is an imperative link in the supply chain.”

The facility will primarily be used for cross-docking logistics, which includes shipping products from the manufacturer directly to the customer. For the U.S. sales company, the regional logistics hub will serve as a warehouse to supply key customers with standard products. The Indianapolis-based center also will bundle inbound orders from overseas locations and distribute them to their designated sites in North America.
