Kuehne + Nagel Russia wins “Leader in Transport and Forwarding” award

At the Golden Chariot Awards recently held in Moscow, Kuehne + Nagel was named “Leader in Transport & Forwarding Industry in Russia”. The prestigious award underpins the company’s successes in the booming Russian market.

The Golden Chariot Award, which was founded by the Russian State Duma and the Ministry of Transport, annually honours companies in a range of categories related to the transport and shipping business; more than 700 firms applied this year. A 30-strong jury of experts from government, industry associations, academia and the media elected Kuehne + Nagel as the winner in the “Leader in Transport & Forwarding Industry in Russia” category, which distinguishes companies for their achievements in the field of logistics.

Perry Neumann, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel in Russia, who accepted the award at the ceremony, held in the Concert Hall of the Moscow Kremlin, said, “This distinction is a great honor for us. It is both a strong confirmation of our commitment and success in the Russian logistics market, and a compelling obligation to continue investing in our nationwide expansion strategy in all of our business fields, inline with growing customer demand.”

Kuehne + Nagel entered the Russian market 16 years ago. It today employs more than 800 logistics experts at offices and warehouses in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Rostov-on-Don and on Sakhalin, and has some 90,000 sqm of warehouse space under management.
