Kuehne + Nagel opens office in Vladivostok
Vladivostok is the largest Far Eastern sea port in Russia and a strategically important location for the handling of inbound and transit cargo. Additionally, the well developed transport infrastructure – seafreight, airfreight and railfreight – allows to serve local customers as well.
The office in Vladivostok will be managed by the set-up in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk where Kuehne + Nagel commenced its activities in 2002 to cater for the needs of customers from the oil & gas industry. Next to the office in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the company operates two more locations on Sakhalin, one in Nogliki in the northern part of the island, and a bonded/non bonded warehouse in Korsakov south of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Today, the company is a leading provider of specialised tailor-made solutions for the oil & gas industry in the area.
“Our new office in Vladivostok provides the opportunity to strengthen and streamline the operational processes and to offer new services such as a direct access to the Russian market from the Far East rather than via Europe,” says Perry Neumann, Managing Director Kuehne + Nagel Russia and Belarus.
