Kuehne + Nagel expands its pharma hub in Belgium
Kuehne + Nagel has inaugurated its enlarged pharma distribution centre in Geel, making it one of the largest within the global KN pharma chain network. Tobias Jerschke, managing director of Kuehne + Nagel Belux, said during the opening ceremony:
"The enlarged pharma hub in Geel is an inherent part of our strategy to offer integrated logistics solutions to our customers, at the very centre of one of Europe's strongest pharma clusters. Leveraging our distribution network, we make sure that hospitals, pharmacies, doctors and patients are supplied in full and on time."
The Geel hub is centrally located in close proximity to the Brussels and Liège airports and with fast connections to the other 15 main European KN pharma chain locations. The facility covers a total area of 22,000 sqm (plus another 10,000 sqm of extension space) and has two cold chambers to handle varying temperature requirements. (mw)
