Kuehne+Nagel Air Logistics expands services at JFK

  • Expansion includes 4,500 sq ft, GxP-compliant, dedicated temperature-controlled area for healthcare and perishables
  • Site features 10,000 sq ft additional warehouse space, with areas dedicated to healthcare, aerospace and semicon

Kuehne+Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics companies, has expanded its John F. Kennedy International airport (JFK) facility with a 4,500 sq. ft. stand-alone, GxP-compliant, temperature-controlled area, as well as an additional 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse space. The expansion of their 78,763 sq. ft. warehouse also includes a modernized office space and enhanced capabilities.

The temperature-controlled space features two separate areas to support a range of climate requirements from +2°C to +25°C and is specifically designed for healthcare and perishable operations. The site is both GDP and IATA CEIV compliant as part of Kuehne+Nagel’s own HealthChain certification. 

“We are pleased to offer enhanced and expanded capabilities at JFK – one of the top hubs for international flights – to support current and future customers in healthcare, aerospace, semicon, perishables or otherwise, with an extraordinary facility from the company they rely on for quality assurance,” said Greg Martin, Senior Vice President, Air Logistics at Kuehne+Nagel in North America. “I’m particularly proud of the investment we have made to further enhance the temperature-controlled supply chain with end-to-end temperature handling in our facility, as we continue to expand our healthcare footprint and support across North America.”

This bonded, container freight station (CFS) site is ideally situated close to JFK airport, has 24/7 availability, features 20 loading and unloading gates, and is both GDP and C-TPAT compliant. The site features enhanced 24/7 CCTV monitoring for added security and offers upgraded unit load device (ULD) capabilities allowing cargo to be kept together with less touch points, bringing added peace of mind for maintenance of cargo integrity. Additional certifications for the site include Kuehne+Nagel’s own EngineChain certification, as well as solutions for battery logistics and finished vehicle logistics.

Healthcare and Semicon are part of the growth areas in Kuehne+Nagel’s Roadmap 2026, a four-year strategic plan towards the company’s vision for 2030: becoming the most trusted supply chain partner supporting a sustainable future.
