LGI recertified according to GDP guidelines

LGI Recertified According To GDP Guidelines

WAGHÄUSEL. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH has been recertified in accordance with the guidelines of Good Distribution Practice (GDP). This was the result of an audit carried out by an external auditing company on 12 December 2018. “The recertification shows that our processes meet the strict requirements and our quality management system meets the high standards of the health care industry”, says Maximilian Gamperling, Division Manager of Health Care & Life Science.

LGI’s Health Care & Life Science division operates the logistics for customers in the medical technology sector and is also certified according to DIN EN ISO 13485. It stands for compliance with quality standards for medical technology products. With the seal “Good Distribution Practices”, which is essentially a proof of quality for the pharmaceutical industry, LGI even surpasses the usual standards for logistics in medical technology.

“Because products from medical technology and the pharmaceutical sector are increasingly coming into contact with each other, the proof of quality according to GDP is enormously important for us”, Gamperling explains. The “Good Distribution Practices” have already been in force for some time as a European guideline and are regarded as proof of quality and integrity in the distribution of medicines. Among other things, it prescribes standards for the training of employees or the design of the storage location and distribution.

Further information on the guideline can be found on the website of the European Commission.

    BÖBLINGEN. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH and its partners inaugurated the digitalization center in Böblingen near Stuttgart on February 4th. “As partner of the center, we are delighted to be pushing ahead with digitalization and innovation projects”, said Dorothea Küttner, Head of Corporate Strategy and Innovation at LGI. The centre supports small and medium-sized enterprises in the district of Böblingen and in the Stuttgart region as a central advisory centre for digitisation projects.

    In addition to LGI, the district of Böblingen, the University of Reutlingen, the Software Center Böblingen/Sindelfingen, the Star Cooperation and the Coworking Space Herrenberg also par-ticipate in the Digitalization Center. The Böblingen region had initiated the project to offer companies advice on digitalization as one of the central current challenges.

    In the coming months, LGI will set up an own laboratory at its headquarter in Herrenberg. “With our Digital Logistics Lab, we are targeting Logistics 4.0”, says Küttner. Test and creative areas will have been set up in the lab where new technologies such as scan gloves can be tested. “We also attach great importance to the qualification of specialists in our lab”, Küttner continues. “It is important for us to work closely with our partners so that we can benefit from each other's experience and offer sustainable help to companies.”

    Küttner explains: “We also hope that the exchange with our partners will lead to an increase in knowledge where we can support our customers even better as a logistics provider. We want to understand what companies are up against in digitalization and where their challenges are. And of course, we also want to encourage our employees to bring innovative ideas to the company.”

    The Center for Digitalization in Böblingen is one of many in Baden-Württemberg. The aim of the center is to advise small and medium-sized companies on digitalization projects. In addition, companies receive support in the development of digital business models. Established creative areas should make digitalization projects tangible and qualify specialists. The center in Böblingen is supported by the state of Baden-Württemberg and its partner companies.

After almost 24 years at the helm of LGI Logistics Group International GmbH, Andreas Bunz, Chairman of the Management Board, announces his resignation in late summer 2019. “I have decided to hand over responsibility for LGI for personal reasons”, says Bunz. His successor will be Bernd Schwenger, who is currently responsible for the Automotive and Electronics divisions at LGI. Focus on digital end-to-end customer solutions “We as management are happy to have found in Bernd exactly the right personality for the position. He has extraordinary leadership qualities and the competence to lead LGI into the digital future”, explains Bunz. Schwenger wants to optimally prepare LGI for the digital transformation of the economy. “As a provider that controls the entire value chain, we have to use existing data and information in such a way that we can offer our customers added value”, says the 46-year-old. Schwenger has broad and international experience in logistics The prospective CEO looks at his new role with confidence and respect: “I am aware that I am not just taking over the position of CEO, but that I am following in the footsteps of LGIs 'founder'”. Schwenger has gained logistics experience and implemented international projects in various management positions at HP and Amazon. In mid-2018, the 46-year-old moved to LGI as Managing Director Amazon Logistics and took over the management of the Automotive and Electronics divisions.
    CEO must fit in with LGI culture
    “It was important to us as management that the new CEO, in addition to his broad logistics experience, had his heart in the right place and fit in with the LGI culture”, says Bunz. In late summer 2019, the 60-year-old will hand over the chairmanship of the management to Schwenger. There is no exact deadline yet. “We will use the time until then for an ideal handover”, continues LGI's CEO. Bunz managed the company from the outset Bunz has managed the company since it was founded: “I never dreamed that the first 160 employees would become over 5,000 employed persons almost 25 years later and that we would make over half a billion euros in sales. Together with Managing Director Eckhard Busch, also at the top of the company from the very beginning, the 60-year-old has decisively shaped the principles of LGI. During his time as CEO, Bunz accompanied all major milestones of the company, including several shareholder changes. Author.

On Tuesday (November 13th), the logistics company's truck arrived at two destinations near Herrenberg where the Angels Association stores rows and rows of boxes of toys, clothing and other useful items for children from underprivileged backgrounds. Volunteers from the Angels Association helped load the 40-ton truck at the two sites near Herrenberg. For months, the association had collected boxes of shoes, blankets and warm clothing for the winter. "We also sent bicycles, household items and even an electronic piano on the journey," said Angelika Knappe, president of the Angels Association. "We are very happy that we can bring the items to Romania with the help of LGI".On Tuesday (November 13th), the 24-ton truck set off on its 1750 kilometers journey to the village of Roman in the Romanian region of Moldova. The transport already arrived at the children's homes on the weekend. "We are delighted to be able to continue this good tradition," says Division Manager Bernhard Jung, who is responsible for the LGI fleet. LGI had already provided a truck and driver for the transport to Romania in 2015 and 2016.
    We are very happy that we can bring the items to Romania with the help of LGI
    "With the aid transport, we are supporting the children with things that they need," explained Knappe. Since 2001, the Angels have been supporting children from Roman, most of whom come from ppor backgrounds. In addition to one aid transport a year, the work of the Angels association gives 80 children and young people at the social center the prospect of a better future because they can go to kindergarten or school. Due to high unemployment many families in Romania live in great poverty.

LGI Logistics Group International GmbH has been responsible for a big part of the European distribution logistics of several Panasonic products since July 1. After a successful inventory of the warehouse in late June, the logistics service provider now officially owns a 50,000-square meter logistics space in Erfurt, Germany and an administration office in Hamburg. On the last weekend in June, executive chair Andreas Bunz welcomed the roughly 130 new employees: “We are looking forward to the new tasks and challenges that we will tackle together with our colleagues in Erfurt and Hamburg.” Since July 1, LGI has taken over the European distribution logistics for Panasonic’s primarily consumer electronics products in Erfurt. The office in Hamburg directs administrative procedures such as customs and transport. LGI and Panasonic first announced their collaboration back in November 2017. With Panasonic, LGI has expanded its electronics customer segment with a strong, internationally growing customer reference. In its Erfurt logistics warehouse, LGI processes a product range comprising roughly 4,000 items – from televisions and music equipment to air conditioners. Beyond that, LGI will render additional services like kitting, packaging, quality inspections and rework.   Author.

LGI Logistics Group International GmbH was recertified according to the ISO 13485:2016 standard in May by an independent authority. The standard confirms the logistics provider's high degree of quality management in medical technology. Since medical products have to comply with special regulations regarding quality and integrity, certification is a basic requirement for manufacturers. “For us, the standard is an important foundation for logistics in medical technology and diagnostics. After our already successful audit according to the ‘GDP’ good sales practices, the recertification emphasizes our high demands for quality assurance and product safety,” says Maximilian Gamperling, Health Care & Life Science Division Manager. The independent audit took place first in Waghäusel near Karlsruhe, Germany from April 23-25 and subsequently in Hamburg on May 23. After both HealthCare locations met these requirements, LGI received its recertification under the ISO 13485 standard. Companies certified with the ISO 13485 standard meet its requirements for quality assurance and product safety in medical technology. This concerns, among other things, the storage and transport of medical products. ISO 13485 was updated in 2016. Among other things, the new version places greater emphasis on risk management and contains additional requirements in the area of software validation.   Author Julian Valachovic [post_title] => LGI Recertified According to ISO 13485:2016 [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => lgi-recertified-according-to-iso-134852016 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-08-30 14:44:40 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-08-30 12:44:40 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://www.lgi.de/?p=2934 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [7] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2864 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2018-06-08 08:17:45 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-06-08 06:17:45 [post_content] => HERRENBERG. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH began using its first long truck in late May. The three-piece, made up of a motor vehicle, movable interme-diate axle, and trailer are on the road in the Böblingen area near Stuttgart. “With the larger loading area, we only have to use three long trucks instead of five conventional ones.” says Division Manager Freight Solutions Bernhard Jung. Transport volumes in Germany will continue their rapid growth. According to forecasts by the German government, road freight transport alone will increase by roughly 40 percent by 2030, compared to 2010. All modes of transport therefore need to become even more effi-cient and environmentally friendly. One possibility is the use of long trucks. They transport the same amount of goods with fewer trips and fewer emissions. A total of three are already on the road under the LGI logo. One is used for empties man-agement, and two for the LGI cross dock in Böblingen. With the eight additional loading me-ters, the logistics provider can transport more goods at once. Thanks to the higher transport volume of the three long trucks, two fewer trucks are driving in the Stuttgart region, which is plagued by traffic. Long trucks entail special requirements. “The drivers need to be specially trained, and re-quire at least five years of commercial driving experience.” Jung explains. Moreover, long trucks are only allowed to travel in a defined traffic network and are particularly secure. They must be equipped with the latest safety and assistance systems, making them some of the safest vehicles ever. Long trucks are equipped with active safety systems such as auto-matic distance control systems, lane departure warning systems, automatic axle load moni-toring, electronically controlled braking systems, camera systems at the tail, contour mark-ings, and lane departure lights on the trailer. This significantly lowers the risk of accidents compared to conventional trucks, according to the German Mobile Industry Association (VDA). LGI has access to a vehicle fleet of roughly 290 tractors and 380 trailers. If the use of the three long trucks proves successful, LGI will utilize additional vehicles in the future.   Authors.

Starting from 2nd July 2018, Bernd Schwenger, currently working as Managing Director at Amazon Logistics in Germany, will take over as new Division Manager for Automotive and Electronics at LGI Logistics Group International. CEO Andreas Bunz says, “We look forward to working together with a proven logistics expert like Bernd Schwenger who will be responsible for two big divisions.” Trained as Business Manager in Transport and Logistics, Bernd Schwenger has many years of experience from previous senior management positions at HP and Amazon. “He has profound knowledge in end-to-end solutions in addition to vital skills in digitalization processes, which are becoming increasingly important to our industry,” Andreas Bunz states. “This is how we will proactively respond to market changes triggered by new technologies.” Schwenger adds, “I am looking forward to the new challenges as Division Manager at LGI. I am convinced by the strategy of LGI’s parent company Elanders to further invest in comprehensive logistics solutions.” The so far Division Manager Automotive, Volker Englert (56), will become Director of Human Resources. With him, LGI will strengthen its strategic Human Resources Management. Andreas Bunz says, “With Volker Englert we put our trust in a powerful leader with operational expertise who will bring us forward in the competition for skilled labor and executives, and in talent management.” Englert has driven the Automotive Division successfully with new concepts and customers since 2013. Matthias Moser (56), so far Division Manager Electronics, will take a sabbatical with LGI for personal reasons. “Matthias Moser has further developed the Division Electronics over the past years and laid the foundation for big projects, just as our new business with Panasonic, that will start in summer,” says Bunz.   Author.

LGI Logistics Group International GmbH has attained yet another major customer. Starting summer 2018, LGI will operate parts of the European distribution for many Panasonic products, primarily in consumer electronics. In doing so, LGI will take over some 130 employees, the existing logistics center in Erfurt, Germany, and an office in Hamburg from the previous Panasonic logistics service provider. “LGI offers a single source logistics approach focused on our company, enabling us to provide our own customers with high-quality, reliable service,” says Werner Graf, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Panasonic Europe. Starting in the summer of 2018, LGI will take over logistics services from the previous service provider at their existing location in the Erfurt logistics center, with 50,000 square meters of space and around 130 employees. The center primarily distributes Panasonic consumer electronics in Europe. A team in Hamburg assigned to administrative processes such as customs and transport management will soon become a part of LGI working for Panasonic. The product range includes over 4,000 items, from hair trimmers and razors, to televisions and heat pumps. Beyond that, LGI will render additional services like kitting, packaging, quality inspections and rework. LGI has been conducting transports for Panasonic on individual routes since early November 2017. “With Panasonic, LGI has been able to expand its customer segment Electronics with a strong, internationally growing customer reference,” adds Matthias Moser, Division Manager Electronics LGI.   Author.

LGI hosted a blood drive to find a lifesaver for Anton Sakic, the husband of an employee. Roughly 120 volunteers came to the Herrenberg headquarters on September 27 to help the man, who has leukemia, by donating blood. The ITG subsidiary had already organized an internal blood drive on September 26, in which 80 employees participated. In 2015 Anton Sakic was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor, which he overcame with chemotherapy. However, this also destroyed his spinal marrow, which led to terminal leukemia. “I’m not afraid of dying, but I am afraid of leaving my family behind,” said Anton Sakic. The Sakic family hopes to find a matching stem cell donor through the blood drive.   Authors.

With effect from January 1, 2018, Holger Funk (age 52), Chief Financial Officer of LGI subsidiary ITG, will be replacing Hans Peter Hehn (age 66), who will go into retirement. Dr. Andreas Bunz, Chairman of the LGI Executive Board: “We’re happy that, with Holger Funk, we’re able to fill this important position from within our own ranks.” Funk is a business graduate who has made the necessary experience in the role of Senior Manager as well as Chief Financial Officer and understands the operative business. “At 52 years old, Holger Funk is in the right age to continue to drive the LGI Group forward over the long term,” commented Dr. Andreas Bunz. Funk has been CEO of LGI subsidiary ITG since March 2015, and is also responsible for the subsidiary's Air & Sea division. He will continue to perform this function in addition to his role as CFO. Hehn joined the LGI Group in 2013, and is CFO of LGI as well as CEO of the LGI professional training subsidiary Logistik Lernzentrum and personnel service provider LOGworks. As CFO, he has helped shape the success story of LGI. He was particularly involved in the transactions relating to the purchase of ITG (2013) and the sale of LGI to the Elanders Group (2016). “As a member of the management board, HPH has not only been responsible for the positive development over the last few years, but has also strongly developed the LGI Group's commercial division,” Bunz stated. As a result, the LGI Group can professionally serve growing requirements using a powerful and fast accounting and controlling system, as well as stable financial management.   Authors.

LGI supported the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder, a friend’s group for children with cancer in Tübingen, with a donation of 10,000 euro. “It's an important concern for us to acknowledge the group and its members’ major commitment, and to help the children and their families,” said LGI CEO Andreas Bunz at the awarding of the check in May. Anton Hoffman, the group's chairman, adds: “We are very happy that LGI has supported us for so many years now. Only with such generous donations can we realize our important projects for the children suffering from cancer and their families.” The non-profit group makes it possible for children with cancer to receive optimal support in the children’s hospital, during their treatment and aftercare.   Author.

LGI Logistics Group International GmbH takes on additional business for HP. As of today (February, 6st) cargo from the whole of Europe will be shipped to the central LGI site in Hünxe (Germany) within the framework of “HP Center Pool”. It will be forwarded to HP customers on the same day. “We look forward to expanding our collaboration with HP”, says Matthias Moser, Division Manager Electronics at LGI. The HP “Center Pool” concept aims to deliver goods to customers in a bundled manner, thus increasing utilization of truck capacity. With this in mind, HP bundles its new goods at key locations in Europe. This includes the LGI site in Hünxe where 300 workers are employed. Apart from laptops and printers, contract logistics will now handle the processing of desktops, monitors and toners in the HP Center Pool. In Hünxe, all goods will be bundled into larger shipments at the Cross-dock, a key handling facility. The bundled goods are, for the most part, to be delivered to wholesalers and retailers on the same day. Apart from logistics, for the first time LGI will also handle parts of the transport on behalf of HP using its own fleet in the context of “HP Center Pool”.   Author.

LGI Logistics Group International GmbH and Sysmex Europe GmbH, a laboratory diagnostics and healthcare company, will continue their collaboration. Maximilian Gamperling, division manager of LGI Health Care & Life Science, and Ralf Kaminski, Director Supply Chain Management Sysmex, signed the contract extension in June this year. “We are looking forward to continue our collaboration with Sysmex as operator of their international distribution center”, said Maximilian Gamperling who has been division manager since April 2016. LGI and the laboratory diagnostics specialized company, Sysmex, started their collaboration in 2003. LGI operates a distribution center at the Hamburg site for the regions of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Furthermore, LGI is responsible for the logistics of medical analyzers and reagents. LGI is not just warehousing Sysmex products but also offering comprehensive services such as order picking or temperature controlled warehousing. Sensible Goods like reagents and Human blood have to be stored at -25°C or between +2°C and +8°C and have to be prepared in order to be transported, a VAS service offered by LGI. A solid fundament for the contract extension was the approval of ISO 13485, a certification which states that a company meets all standards regarding the handling of medical products. This year LGI successfully passed the control audit.   Author.

The Swedish based Elanders Groupsigned a contract for the acquisition of LGI Logistics Group International with Kajo Neukirchen Group and the “Mittelstandsfonds” managed by M Cap Finance. The transaction is still subject to approval by the relevant competition authorities. “We are proud of our success story over the past years that we want to continue together with Elanders”, says Dr. Andreas Bunz, CEO of LGI after signing on June, 17th. Elanders wants to extend its business in Supply Chain Solutions. “LGI has a good reputation among its customers. With LGI we can offer our customers the same service in Europe as they already enjoy in Asia and the Americas. The acquisition is another step in the strategy Elanders has conducted in recent years becoming a global player”, says Magnus Nilsson, President and CEO of Elanders. LGI will remain an independent company with its own management and the existing brand. “The business models of Elanders and LGI are a perfect fit. We want to benefit from each other’s experiences and know-how and broaden our global footprint with Elanders presence in the Americas and Asia” says Bunz. Elanders capacity within Print & Packaging as well as its competence in e-Commerce will also open new business sectors and markets for LGI. ”This will offer LGI opportunities for further growth in existing and new business sectors”, says Bunz.   Authors.

ITG Internationale Spedition + Logistik GmbH, a subsidiary company of LGI, has been doubly honored with the Lufthansa Cargo Quality Award. ITG achieved top place in both categories, “Quality” and “Quality and eCargo”. Following a victory in 2013 and a second place in 2014, ITG was able to defend its title from last year in the “Quality” category. “We are proud to have now won this prize for the third time in four years. Our thanks are above all due to the teams on the ground whose conscientious work makes a valuable contribution on a daily basis, not just in terms of keeping the customers happy, but also in terms of working together with the airlines in an optimal manner. It is this level of interaction in the transportation chain that leads to the best results,” said Holger Funk, CEO for Haulage at ITG. Lufthansa Cargo accredits two client groups, “Top 40” and “Haulers with more than 10,000 air waybills” in three respective categories. In the “Quality” category, various parameters for the maintenance of the scope and punctuality of the delivery are evaluated. The “eCargo Award” introduced in 2014, recognizes the rapid expansion of digital processes between haulers and airlines. The key to being awarded the “Quality and eCargo” award is having the best combined service.   Authors.

For the first time, LGI Logistics Group International GmbH has supported the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce in conducting its final examinations for warehouse logistics specialists. Between January 12-15, 2016, a total of 120 prospective warehouse logistics specialists took part in the winter examinations at the LGI site in Altenwerder. Following three years of training, they presented their final examinations to the supervisory board - and they can now officially bear the title, “Warehouse logistics specialist”. Within the framework of a project, three LGI apprentices under the leadership of Melanie Lachmann, undertook to take care of the candidates at the LGI site in Altenwerder: Jennifer Dahms, Pia Braasch, and Vincent Samel instructed the visitors on safety requirements, amongst other matters, and accompanied them to the examination rooms - for which they received praise from the Chamber of Commerce. Feedback from the candidates has been very positive. We can well imagine that LGI will help again with coordination next time.   Author.

Division Manager Markus Ziegler and creator Kris Van Lancker of LGI Logistics Group International GmbH won the 2016 LEO Award for the best innovation with their pakadoo parcel service. The German Transport Journal (DVZ) awards the logistics prize annually for the five categories of Company, Manager, Lifetime Achievement, Personality of the Year, and Innovation. Last year, the prize went to Daimler for the self-driving truck concept, this year pakadoo was amongst the list of prestigious award-winners. The LGI app-based service manages the receipt and return of private parcels from the workplace - independent of the parcel delivery service and online shop (e.g. Amazon). The idea behind pakadoo convinced the jury because the service saves time and money for all parties as well as reduces the impact on the environment. At this stage, around 27,000 employees at over 50 locations in Germany can use pakadoo. Large employers, such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, ZF/TRW, or newly the Paul Hartmann Group have implemented the system at their premises.   Author.

As one of the first logistics service providers, LGI Deutschland has received EICC certification for its site at Hünxe. The EICC Code of Conduct is a set of standards governing the electronics industry supply chain. They ensure that LGI acts in an ecologically and ethically responsible manner and that it treats its employees with respect and dignity. In this way, the EICC certification goes far beyond mere compliance with legal provisions. “By complying with this code of conduct for the electronics industry, LGI is demonstrating to its customers, suppliers, and employees that it is a responsible and reliable partner," said CEO Dr. Andreas Bunz in October 2015. The Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) is an independent association made up of leading IT and electronics companies such as Hewlett Packard (HP), Apple, and Samsung, and was set up in 2004. Its aim is to promote a sense of social and ecological responsibility and ethical business practices on a global basis within the electronics industry, and covers five areas: Working conditions, health and safety, environmental protection, corporate ethics, and a management system that meets the code's standards.   Author.
