Toy logistics: Europe’s largest warehouse for toys

What is a paradise for every child is a daily logistical challenge for us. From board games to model kits to play figures: in the “Toy Distribution Centre” of our subsidiary – M + F Spedition in Nordhorn – incoming toy consignments from all over Europe are sorted, barcoded, scanned, commissioned and shipped throughout Europe. We supply large retail chains as well as retailers and private customers. At peak times – during the Christmas business – around 3.5 million toy items are stored in Europe’s largest toy warehouse (around 20,000 pallets). Among them are games such as Monopoly by Hasbro, Schleich animals, dolls by Zapf, Playmobil figures and, for more than 20 years, model kits by Revell.

Toys as core business

Toy logistics has developed into the core business for M + F Spedition. We now store, pick and transport up to 2,500 deliveries per day for more than 85 well-known German and European companies.

30 years of experience

We have been facing the extreme seasonal fluctuations, the time pressure and the high assortment diversity of the toy industry for more than 30 years – with success. For efficient processes for our customers, most of whom have been with us for many years.

Successful integration

Our subsidiary is actively supported by the people of Lebenshilfe Nordhorn. We have been integrating people with disabilities into our toy logistics for more than ten years – with success for all sides.

Revell: A long-standing success story in toy logistics

When it comes to plastic model kits, the Revell company is usually in the game. We have been supporting Europe’s market leader in plastic model kits in the distribution business, warehouse logistics and other logistical challenges for more than 20 years now. It all started with parcel and general cargo shipments, which we prepared for dispatch and further distribution to and in the UK and Ireland via our distribution centre in Nordhorn. Timing was the be-all and end-all right from the start: from timed deliveries to fixed deliveries. Over time, we have developed a partnership of equals that we are proud of. Today, we are an integral part of Revell’s process chain.

Full range of services from a single source – individually tailored

In addition to distribution logistics, M + F Spedition took over the first logistics activities for Revell in 2005. The focus was on the logistical packaging and labelling of products for well-known mail-order companies in England, such as Argos and Shop-Direct. This was followed by handling the first promotional logistics for large supermarket chains. Until 2019, when a major milestone in the successful collaboration was set: the establishment of a dedicated logistics and distribution centre for Revell by M + F Spedition. This allowed all incoming goods to be concentrated. Since 2021, we have also been taking care of retail and small parts logistics and implementing the efficient logistics solution for Revell with our full range of services: from incoming goods, quality control and storage, picking, packaging and labelling, as well as assortment formation, display construction and finally scheduling and shipping.
