20 years in Poland

20 years ago Kuehne + Nagel founded its national company in Poznan. Today, this anniversary was celebrated with numerous customers and business partners as well as national and local political representatives.

“In the past 20 years, Kuehne + Nagel Poland has continually expanded its customer base by providing high quality logistics services,” said Reinhard Lange, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel International AG at the event. He expressed his confidence regarding the further positive development of the Polish organisation.
 
Kuehne + Nagel was among the first logistics providers to enter the Polish market after the profound political transformation in Eastern Europe. Today, the company ranks among the leaders in the national logistics market. Its 1.900 experts offer the full range of air, sea, road & rail, contract logistics services and lead logistics solutions. The warehousing space under management amounts to 190.000 sqm.

While initially Kuehne + Nagel offered international forwarding services for local customers, it opened its first warehouse just one year later. The company is proud of its long-lasting partnership with Bosch, the first customer served in the contract logistics field. Due to the growing demand for high quality integrated logistics solutions, Kuehne + Nagel expanded its presence in Poland and operates 19 locations in 12 cities.

“Today, we focus in particular on providing specialised services for the high-tech, industrial goods, automotive, FMCG-Retail as well as pharmaceutical / healthcare industries," said Tobias Jerschke, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Poland. “To ensure highest quality and efficiency for our customers, we will continue to optimise our logistics infrastructure and strengthen our network. Furthermore, we will concentrate on extending our domestic and international road transportation activities and integrated logistics solutions."
