Kuehne + Nagel received Statement of Objections from the European Commission

Freight forwarders including Kuehne + Nagel have been subject to the European Commission’s investigation related to alleged anti-competitive practices in the area of European freight forwarding.

The Statement of Objections follows the investigations initiated by the European Commission at Kuehne + Nagel premises in October 2007 and subsequent questionnaires. A Statement of Objections is a procedural document whereby the European Commission communicates its preliminary view of a possible infringement of EU competition law. Addressees are allowed to present arguments in response.

Kuehne + Nagel will examine the Statement of Objections, will respond in due course and reserves its right to exhaust legal remedies.
