Kuehne + Nagel to accelerate development in Asia Pacific
- Strong focus on organic and inorganic growth

Following the successful combination of the former three European regions into one Europe, the significant growth and successful integration of three major acquisitions in the North America region, the focus for the years to come is on Asia Pacific.
Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers, sets path for further and accelerated growth in Asia Pacific. In order to target an even stronger role in logistics all over Asia, the company has decided to concentrate strengths and to combine its so far two Asian organisations into one strong region.

The two current regional managers Mr. Jens Drewes and Mr. Siew Loong Wong will jointly lead the ambitious development of Kuehne + Nagel in Asia Pacific.

The joint leadership of the region by two proven executives will prepare the ground for a new dimension of organic and inorganic growth of our networks to even better serve our customers.”
