Kuehne + Nagel expands in the Netherlands - New airfreight terminal at the Industrial Park Nieuw-Vennep South

Today, Kuehne + Nagel N.V. is officially opening its new location at the Industrial Park Nieuw-Vennep South. The larger premises create the ideal conditions for the further expansion of the company’s high quality airfreight and related logistics operations.

Kuehne + Nagel is continually expanding its activities in the Netherlands. The dynamic business performance in the airfreight sector called for a facility with larger handling and office space. Located in close proximity to the SchipholAirport, the terminal distinguishes itself by combining a highly efficient logistics infrastructure with modern architectural design. It is dedicated to meeting all airfreight-related logistics requirements of its customers under one roof.

In addition to traditional import and export activities, Kuehne + Nagel will in the course of this year provide new time-defined airfreight products that meet the growing demand for plannable and controllable airfreight processes. Furthermore, at the new facility customers will benefit from tailor-made value-added air logistics services that include, amongst others, pick & pack, quality checking, inventory management, kitting & assembly, and cross docking.

Within the scope of the group-wide strategy to extend activities in various niche sectors, Kuehne + Nagel N.V. is focusing on the provision of highly specialised services for the logistics requirements of airlines and maintenance shops (aviation logistics), shipping companies (ship spares logistics), and customers’ events and exhibition needs (event logistics).

Guus van Leeuwen, Director Airfreight Benelux Region, Kuehne + Nagel N.V., “The new facility is proof of our customer-orientation and at the same time underlines our good performance in the Dutch air cargo market. The move from our former location at Schiphol-Rijk to the Nieuw-Vennep premises lays the foundation for continued strong growth.”

 

In the Netherlands, Kuehne + Nagel ranks among the top 5 airfreight forwarders. The new facility complements the national company’s two other airfreight offices at SchipholAirport, dedicated to the important sector of perishables shipments, and at the Aalsmeer branch, focused on the transport of flowers and bulbs.
