Kuehne + Nagel to drive logistics expansion in Russia

Kuehne + Nagel has ambitious strategic development plans for Russia. Within

the scope of its contract logistics growth policy in North-East Europe, the

logistics provider aims to expand its warehouse space across the country to

more than 300,000 sqm over the next three years.

Press Release

In a move underlining the strategic importance and business potential of

the Russian market, Kuehne + Nagel earlier this year relocated the regional

headquarters for its North-East Europe region from Warsaw to Moscow; the

region comprises Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland,

Romania, Russia, and Ukraine.

Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s top-three contract logistics providers,

entered the Russian market in 1992 and currently has 70,000 sqm of

warehouse space under management at six sites in Moscow, St.Petersburg and

Rostov-on-Don. Services in particular are dedicated to the requirements of

the FMCG/retail and consumer goods/electronics industries. The company plans to significantly boost operations and expand its warehousing and logistics footprint in Russia to more than 300,000 sqm over the next three years. Before the end of 2007 alone, new facilities are scheduled to go into operation in St. Petersburg, Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Samara and Vladivostok.

Clemens Abt, who is responsible for Kuehne + Nagel’s North-East Europe

region and National Manager for Russia since the beginning of the year,

commented on Kuehne + Nagel’s expansion strategy: “With investments in

facilities, technology and staff, we are developing high quality logistics

operations in the country’s key consumer markets. For some time already we have been accompanying international companies and retail chains setting up activities in Russia. Our strategic expansion plans are a strong

confirmation of our commitment to support customers develop and extend

their business considerably further across Russia. Our medium-term objective is to position Kuehne + Nagel as one of the country’s leading contract logistics providers.”
