Kuehne+Nagel has opened a new depot in Turin, Italy, as part of its plans to strengthen its groupage network in Europe. Groupage is a service that allows customers to book road freight services for shipments of up to 6 pallets or 2.4 loading meters, which are then grouped with other consignments to optimize truck capacity.
The new depot in Turin is strategically located to improve connectivity between Italy and France, as well as Western Europe and the Iberian countries. Turin is also well-connected to the economically important regions of Liguria, Piemonte, and Valle d'Aosta in Italy.
The new depot is expected to facilitate line haul optimization and reduce lead times for shipments from these areas to France, Western Europe, and the Iberian countries.
"A future-proof groupage setup requires the right network developments in the right place at the right time," said Nicholas Minde, Regional Head of Road Logistics Europe for Kuehne+Nagel. "As part of the Roadmap 2026, the ambition is to offer the best Kuehne+Nagel Experience. Investing in a more robust pan-European groupage network is needed to get there, so we can keep offering more competitive lead times. At the same time, we stay flexible with our asset-light setup to handle fluctuating volumes viably."
Kuehne+Nagel also opened new cross-docks in Poland and Romania earlier this year.
The company's investment in its groupage network in Europe is a positive development for customers. The new depot in Turin will improve connectivity and reduce lead times for shipments between Italy and other parts of Europe. Kuehne+Nagel's asset-light setup also allows it to be more flexible in handling fluctuating volumes.
Kuehne+Nagel's expansion of its groupage network in Europe is a sign of the company's commitment to providing its customers with the best possible service. The new depot in Turin will be a valuable asset to the company's network, and it is expected to benefit customers in a number of ways.Return to Articles
