Kuehne + Nagel launches new airfreight logistics hub in Singapore

Singapore, April 27, 2017 - The new hub is part of Kuehne + Nagel’s growth strategy to drive airfreight logistics excellence, strengthen end-to-end solutions and enhance service offerings to key industries.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Jens Drewes, President South Asia Pacific of Kuehne + Nagel, said, “Singapore is geographically pivotal to regional trade and a very important location for Kuehne + Nagel. The new airfreight logistics hub is part of our development blueprint to deliver logistics excellence with an end-to-end solution offering. This investment complements other Kuehne + Nagel infrastructure in Singapore to create value to our customers, especially in the aerospace, technology and pharma & healthcare industries.”

Located within the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore at Changi, Kuehne + Nagel’s new airfreight facility of more than 5,200 square metres consolidates warehousing and administrative operations for aviation logistics previously housed at three different locations and will support operational synergies and cargo turnaround time for customers with time-critical logistics requirements.

“The demand of the aviation & aerospace industry is rapidly changing with rising service levels expectations, more sophisticated and innovative solutions, as well as growing environmental issues. With this investment, Kuehne + Nagel aims to play a key role in supporting the supply chain transformation of this industry,” adds Martin Habisreitinger, Director of Airfreight for Kuehne + Nagel Singapore and Malaysia.

The new facility went fully operational in early April and operates 24/7 all year round.
