Kuehne + Nagel UAE launches Dubai South warehouse expansion
Kuehne + Nagel UAE has opened its new warehouse extension in the Logistics District in the presence of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) and Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation (DACC).
The inauguration coincides with Kuehne + Nagel’s 40-year anniversary since establishing operations in the UAE.
The new warehouse is intended to serve aerospace and other high-tech industries, furthering boosting Dubai’s global competitiveness through state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities in the logistics sector.
The expansion has also enabled Kuehne + Nagel to further grow its pharmaceutical operations in line with international guidelines in governance, risk and compliance standards, as the extension allows more capacity in the existing phase 2 warehouse to be utilised for pharma logistics.
The new warehouse facility is spread over an area of 10,000 square meters, built with one main chamber as the general storage area and a mezzanine chamber. The new building is also equipped with the latest warehousing technology and has 10 docking stations and one drive in door with a ramp for aerospace materials and large engines.
“The extension of our warehouse campus in Dubai South Logistics District underlines our strong commitment to the UAE and the Middle East and provide outstanding logistics services to our customers,” said Thorsten Pook, managing director of Kuehne + Nagel UAE and Oman.
“We recognize the tremendous growth potential of the Middle East and situating our operations in Logistics District is the ideal choice to drive growth for our customers and significantly contributing to the efficiency in their value chain,” he added.
