FUNKE MEDIA GROUP awards complete periodicals logistics to Logwin

Whether Hörzu or Frau im Spiegel – since September 2014, Logwin has been delivering more than 140 periodicals for the FUNKE MEDIA GROUP.

Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – Since September 1, 2014, Logwin has taken over logistics for all periodicals from the FUNKE MEDIA GROUP. The contract includes distribution of more than 140 periodicals to press partners and sales outlets in Germany and abroad.

The FUNKE MEDIA GROUP had purchased high-circulation TV-programme- and women’s periodicals including Hörzu, TV DIGITAL and Bild der Frau in 2013. Together with their own successful magazines, including Gong and Frau im Spiegel, FUNKE is one of the largest providers in the magazine segment.

After acquiring the magazines, the FUNKE MEDIA GROUP issued a new call for tenders for logistics services for its entire periodicals division. Logwin, the logistics services provider, was awarded the contract and, starting immediately, is handling distribution of the periodicals as well as warehousing and pick-and-place assignments.

“For the periodicals logistics market, this is a considerable contract,” says Wilfried Schneider, Managing Director of Logwin Solutions Media GmbH, who took over this position at the start of the year and is responsible for operations. “We’re quite pleased with their confidence in us – it is equal parts motivation and obligation for all of us.”
