Kuehne + Nagel expands in Duisburg logport
“This engagement underlines Duisburg’s importance in Kuehne + Nagel’s worldwide network. It documents as well the value of the long standing, reliable collaboration," said Erich Staake, Duisburger Hafen AG Chief Executive Officer, during today's ground breaking ceremony in the presence of Mayor Adolf Sauerland. "Kuehne + Nagel has significantly contributed to the development of the Port of Duisburg into one of the leading international logistics hubs," Staake continued.
Hans George Brinkmann, Managing Director of the German Kuehne + Nagel organisation and Regional Manager Central Europe, explained: “Duisburg has proven itself as a central European logistics hub. Including the new facility we will have 150,000 square metres warehousing space under management. Multinational customers benefit here from tailormade contract logistics solutions and innovative distribution concepts.“
The newly acquired 65,000 square metre large real property borders directly on Kuehne + Nagel’s existing premises in the logport area and offers additional 14,000 square metres for future expansion. Approximately 100 new jobs will be created in Duisburg.
