Extension of Kuehne + Nagel’s Network in Japan

Effective May 1, 2007, Kuehne + Nagel has opened a new office in Yokohama, extending its network across the country to nine locations in five cities. The new office offers customers comprehensive seafreight import and export services, including in-house customs clearance.

With this recent addition to its network, Kuehne + Nagel is now the only foreign logistics provider to have in-house customs clearance capabilities in Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Kobe and Nagoya (air only), underlining the company’s objective of providing customers in Japan with comprehensive services from a single source.

“The new seafreight office is a further step in our strategy to continually enhance the attractiveness and reach of our offering across Japan. Thanks to our customs clearance licenses in some of the country’s key cities, we are very flexible and can offer companies a one-stop service in pretty much all of the major centres of trade and commerce in Japan,” John Levin, President of Kuehne + Nagel Ltd., commented on the opening of the new seafreight office.

The Yokohama office is located in the city’s business district and in convenient proximity to the local customs office.
