Kuehne + Nagel Opens New Office in Kobe

Kuehne + Nagel Ltd. is opening a new office in Kobe, Japan on January 1, 2007, thereby extending the company’s network in the country to a total of eight locations.

Press Release

Kobe is one of the two largest seaports in Japan next to Osaka. This

new expansion comes in response to the growing demand for one-stop

shopping services from logistics companies in the market. Customers

are increasingly looking for providers who are capable of offering inhouse

customs clearance for all cargo that originates from or is destined

to the greater Kobe area.

Dedicated to meeting all the seafreight-related logistics requirements of customers from a single source, the new Kuehne + Nagel office is

located in the Sanomiya business district, overlooking Kobe's City Hall

and in close proximity to the local customs bureau and major infrastructure facilities.

“The extension of our network underlines Kuehne + Nagel’s commitment

to providing customers with ever-enhancing service levels”, said John Levin, President of Kuehne + Nagel Ltd. “The new Kobe office is also in

line with our business strategy of offering in-house customs clearance on

a country-wide basis, and marks a further step in the expansion of our

high quality seafreight and related logistics operations.”

Kuehne + Nagel was established in Japan in 1982. With around 230

employees, the company has a strong market position in international

forwarding and contract logistics, and ranks among the top five logistics

providers in the market. As part of its growth-oriented expansion plan,

the company is opening a new seafreight clearance office in Yokohama in May 2007.
