Kuehne + Nagel South Africa celebrates its 65th anniversary
Kuehne + Nagel South Africa yesterday held its official anniversary event celebrating 65 years of excellence in South Africa. A significant milestone not only for the country organisation, but also for the Kuehne + Nagel Group.
In South Africa, the hub for Pan African trade, Kuehne + Nagel is represented with 5 locations and over 400 employees. Together with the achievement of the level 1 B-BBEE compliance the company demonstrates its full commitment towards further development of both the country and the people of South Africa.
“I attribute this success to a brilliant team of dedicated colleagues but also our customers and business partners whom have been relying on our services and solutions, and willing to form a trust based corporation for now more than 65 years,” commented Dr. Detlef Trefzger, CEO of the Kuehne + Nagel Group, the celebrations last night in Johannesburg.
From humble beginnings, strong partnerships, a defined strategy, and the continuous expansion of projects such as the new Skycentre further enables South Africa to reach new heights as an integrated logistics provider driving innovative products and solutions.
“I am immensely proud to lead a team of dedicated people and I look forward to our future of endless potential in Africa, as we continue to create value for all our customers," said Marcus Balzereit, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Southern Africa, during the event which hosted customers, business partners and employees to honor the anniversary.
