Kuehne+Nagel is considerably expanding its contract logistics footprint with the opening of its latest fulfilment centre in Contern, Luxembourg, comprising 34.000m² of warehousing space. The opening ceremony was attended by Luxembourg’s Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel, Kuehne+Nagel’s Honorary Chairman, Klaus-Michael Kühne, and other political representatives. Marc Maurer of Swiss running gear brand On and Luc Provost of  B Medical Systems, the CEOs of the two anchor customers of the new site, were also amongst the guests. 

The expansion reaffirms Luxembourg as a strategic location for Kuehne+Nagel in the centre of Europe with easy access to the continent’s most important consumer markets. From the Grand Duchy, Kuehne+Nagel meets the complex and dynamic supply chain needs of its customers through integrated value-added solutions – especially in the area of e-commerce fulfilment. This includes inventory management, picking, packing and shipping orders, managing returns, as well as valueadded services. 

Klaus-Michael Kühne: “Following a promising start 51 years ago,  Kuehne+Nagel has been growing its multi-modal logistics solutions in Luxembourg continually and now further strengthens its function as a strategic contract logistics hub in Europe. This also underlines our confidence in the business location and the fruitful collaboration with the government of Luxembourg and the local authorities of Contern.” 

Tobias Jerschke, Managing Director of Kuehne+Nagel BeLux, adds: “The new fulfilment centre perfectly complements our existing e-commerce hub in Belgium, securing fast end-to-end lead times. At the same time, the warehouse roofs perfectly lend themselves to the biggest photovoltaic installation to date by Enovos – Luxembourg’s main energy supplier. Supporting the green energy transition in the country underlines Kuehne+Nagel’s strong commitment to sustainability as part of its ambitious Net Zero Carbon targets.”  
 
Kuehne+Nagel Luxembourg today employs over 700 people and has 100.000m² of warehousing space. In addition, the company has a historically strong presence in Road Logistics, Sea Logistics and Air Logistics (with an office at Findel airport) as well as an Integrated Logistics team managing regional and global contracts for 4PL customers with a focus on consumer electronics, industrial goods and pharma.
