The new state-of-the-art facility with bonded and non-bonded areas will be ideally located within close proximity to major highways and ports which enables fast access to European destinations. It will have 40 loading bays and be suitable to store up to 56.000 pallets. The total warehouse capacity is 46.000 m² built on a land plot of 80.000 m².

The logistics centre will be equipped with advanced technology and automation solutions to help improve workflow processes, reduce time required to pick, pack and ship items and enable orders to be fulfilled faster.

20.000 m² of the warehouse space will serve the Fanuc Europe Corporation as a European Distribution Centre and a Product Customisation Centre for Robots and Robomachines. In addition to the warehouse operation, Kuehne + Nagel will manage the distribution of all Robots and Robomachines to the European market.

The remaining space is designed to support customers in their growing demands for integrated end-to-end solutions in Luxembourg, with a main focus on industrial goods and eCommerce activities.

Etienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy, welcomed Kuehne + Nagel's decision: "Kuehne + Nagel's expansion in Luxembourg is a mark of trust in our country as a prime logistics hub in Europe. This project is also a significant step towards the implementation of the logistics action plan that foresees, among others, to develop the Eurohub Centre site as a logistics park in Contern next to the Eurohub South logistics park in Bettembourg-Dudelange."

Kevin Nash, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel BeLux said, “We are very excited about the expansion of Kuehne + Nagel in Luxembourg. This new warehouse and distribution centre underlines our commitment to leverage on the prime position that Luxembourg offers within Europe enabling us to provide best in class end-to-end solutions to our customers”.

The new Kuehne + Nagel Contern logistics centre is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
