AB Texel Group new AGRAVIS logistics partner
AB Texel Group is to provide feed transport for AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG for two production locations in Germany. On 1 March the two parties entered into a multi-year collaboration. As part of the collaboration, AB Texel Group has acquired the transport from RWZ Rhein-Main eG.
The collaboration and acquisition are in line with AB Texel Group's strategy to grow in the Feed market and to enter into sustainable partnerships.
AB Texel Group is AGRAVIS's logistics partner for the production sites in Wiesbaden and Neuss, and transports feed to the cattle farms. AB Texel Group has acquired the transport of the current logistics partner RWZ for this purpose. RWZ's 17 employees have joined AB Texel Feed Deutschland GmbH as part of the acquisition. This German subsidiary of AB Texel Group is purely focused on feed transport. The acquisition has meant 15 trucks and bulk tanks added to the AB Texel Group fleet.
AGRAVIS and AB Texel Group have entered into a long-term partnership. Jörg Sudhoff, logistics director of AGRAVIS Raffeisen AG, says: "We chose AB Texel Group due to the company's knowledge of the agricultural sector and the opportunities that AB offers to gain insight into and optimise logistics processes through the use of data dashboards."
Dennis Wetenkamp, CEO of AB Texel Group, adds: "We're delighted to be able to put our expertise to good use for a partner like AGRAVIS. As a logistics partner, we want to constantly meet our clients' needs and together aim for ongoing improvement. We have a broad, dense network in agri and food transport and are building on almost 100 years of experience."
