Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers, has relocated its Middle East regional headquarters from Istanbul to Dubai.
“Dubai, as global city and international business hub, offers favourable conditions for further expansion of our transport and logistics network as well as further investments in our contract logistics business. It is our objective to become one of the region’s leading logistics providers,” said Reinhard Lange, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel International at a press conference in Dubai.
At the heart of the planned expansion is Kuehne + Nagel’s state-of-the-art logistics centre, located in the Dubai Logistics City (DLC). DLC’s unique infrastructure allows Kuehne + Nagel to even better serve its customers by providing integrated logistics services, and, at the same time, increase efficiencies.
Having been the first international logistics provider to go fully operational in DLC in 2009, Kuehne + Nagel’s logistics facility – featuring 17,000 sqm of warehouse space — has developed into the principal Kuehne + Nagel distribution hub for the Middle East.
“Due to the increasing demand for our integrated services, we will expand our site in DLC to a total of 32,000 sqm warehouse space. Just recently, we have modernised our 16,000 sqm logistics terminal in the Jebel Ali Free Zone,” added Werner Kleymann, regional manager for Middle East, Central Asia and Turkey.
