Kuehne + Nagel UAE launches Dubai South ware­house ex­pan­sion

Logistics Middle East - - UPDATE -

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.
