Kuehne+Nagel North America expands healthcare network with a new distribution center
- Kuehne+Nagel solidifies Indianapolis as a key location for further healthcare contract logistics development
- Multi-client GDP facility to meet customer needs
- Expansion comes on the heels of similar expansions in Memphis (TN) and Southaven (MS)
Global logistics company Kuehne+Nagel announces the expansion of its healthcare contract logistics network in the United States with a new multi-client and GDP compliant facility adjacent to Indianapolis International Airport.
The investment into the 166,000 square feet healthcare site will support the growing need for distribution facilities that are able to meet strict quality, regulatory and temperature requirements. Kuehne+Nagel is positioning the necessary infrastructure within key locations, such as Indianapolis, to better enable nationwide distribution and ensure patient access to vital healthcare products such as diabetes products.
The site is part of a healthcare logistics campus designed to maximize the scalability, flexibility and reach of Kuehne+Nagel customers by integrating transportation and distribution management activities in the same facility. In addition, the site will be managed by tier 1 warehouse management systems, automation, and experienced personnel who understand specialized healthcare product requirements within a highly regulated environment.
Eduardo Razuck, Senior Vice President Contract Logistics Americas at Kuehne+Nagel, says: “This latest investment underpins our commitment to healthcare logistics, which we recognize as a significant factor to our and our customer’s future success. We are excited to invest intensely in infrastructure, resources and capabilities in Indianapolis and other key markets.”
Kuehne+Nagel’s expansion in Indianapolis comes on the heels of similar expansions in Memphis (TN), where Kuehne+Nagel manages vaccines, and Southaven (MS), where it manages medical devices. All of this supports the company’s capabilities to provide end-to-end global transportation and contract logistics solutions to healthcare companies requiring GDP standards.
With over 79,000 employees at more than 1,300 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne+Nagel Group is one of the world's leading logistics companies. Its strong market position lies in sea logistics, air logistics, road logistics and contract logistics, with a clear focus on integrated logistics solutions.
