Kuehne+Nagel is expanding its contract logistics footprint with the opening of its latest fulfilment centre in Contern, Luxembourg, covering 34,000 square metres of warehousing space.
The Swiss forwarder said the expansion reaffirms Luxembourg as a strategic location for the company in Europe. It will offer integrated value-added solutions, particularly in the area of e-commerce fulfilment, including inventory management, picking, packing and shipping orders, managing returns, as well as value-added services.
“Following a promising start 51 years ago, Kuehne+Nagel has been growing its multi-modal logistics solutions in Luxembourg continually and now further strengthens its function as a strategic contract logistics hub in Europe,” said Kuehne+Nagel’s Honorary Chairman, Klaus-Michael Kühne.
“This also underlines our confidence in the business location and the fruitful collaboration with the government of Luxembourg and the local authorities of Contern.”
As the third contract logistics site for Kuehne+Nagel Luxembourg in Europe, the company expects the new fulfilment centre to complement its existing e-commerce hub in Belgium and align with its net zero carbon targets. The warehouse roofs feature the biggest photovoltaic installation to date by Luxembourg’s main energy supplier Enovos.
Kuehne+Nagel Luxembourg currently has over 700 people and has 100,000 square metres of warehousing space. It said it has a historically strong presence in road logistics, sea logistics and air logistics (with an office at Findel airport) as well as an integrated logistics team managing regional and global contracts for 4PL customers with a focus on consumer electronics, industrial goods and pharma.
Swiss running gear brand On and B Medical Systems will be the two anchor customers of the new site, the company noted.
