Kuehne+Nagel has unveiled the latest expansion project in its Chicago facility, with a new GxP compliant area to support the pharma and healthcare sector.
The logistics player has added 21,000 square feet of temperature-controlled space at its facility, which features separate areas to support climate requirements from +2°C to +25°C, specifically designed for healthcare operations.
The opening follows the company’s move from Elk Grove Village to Bensenville in Illinois earlier this year, which doubled the available warehouse space and allowed import and export to take place in one facility, increasing efficiency for operations spanning sea, air, road, and customs.
“This investment allows our customers and future customers to further improve the quality of their temperature-controlled supply chain with end-to-end temperature handling in our facility,” said Greg Martin, Senior Vice President, Air Logistics at Kuehne+Nagel.
“As we continue to expand our healthcare footprint across North America, we are committed to investing in next-level facilities for our healthcare customers who need a company to rely on for quality assurance in the storage process.”
