APLIGO manages supply chain for Panda Security product lines

APLIGO provides customers with comprehensive modular services related to the production and logistics of OEM appliances. The appliance experts are taking over production and worldwide logistics for Panda Security in cooperation with the long standing Asian manufacturer.

"More and more companies are choosing to outsource the entire supply chain. The advantages are obvious – they don't have to worry about supplier management or warehousing and will profit from lower logistics costs," said Marc Emminger, managing director of APLIGO. Panda Security, with its European headquarters in Bilbao, Spain, has offices in 56 countries and more than 10 million customers in 195 countries.

New generations of appliances of GateDefender Integra and GateDefender Performa will be released to Panda customers all over the world, directly from APLIGO's state-of-the-art warehouse under the long-term contract. APLIGO is now responsible for logistics as well as return transactions, warranty claims and repairs.
