New 2009 Audi logo.
Audi AG opened its new packaging center in Wunstorf near Hanover in northern Germany. This CKD (Completely Knocked Down) packaging center – one of the most modern of its kind in Germany – was created within just six months, working together with logistics partner Syncreon. It covers an area of 20,000 m2, which will now be used to prepare Audi models destined for the Chinese and Indian markets for final assembly in the respective country and to package them ready for shipping.
“We can process all CKD vehicle sets destined for China and India quickly and efficiently in Wunstorf,” said Dr. Michael Hauf, Head of Audi Brand Logistics, summarizing the center’s advantages. And the distance from the Chinese and Indian markets will no longer be a problem. “For the time being, the new packaging center provides us with sufficient capacities for the brand’s course of growth in China and India, and for the increasing number of model variants,” emphasized Hauf.
As well as being near the major German ports and the Mittelland Canal, the site in Wunstorf also has good transport links. There are already plans to increase the site area to a total of 40,000 m2 in 2012, which will make Wunstorf the Group’s largest packaging center. The new facility will make an important contribution to the brand’s course of growth in China and India.
