The global full-service logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel opens a new state-of-the-art facility near the Colombian capital city to expand its integrated supply chain management solutions in the area.
Located seven kilometres from Bogota, the Siberia’s industrial complex
includes an industrial park, a "dry port" as well as business and logistics
centres. The location has access to the main highways connecting major
cities such as Medellin and Cali as well as the seaports of Cartagena on
the Atlantic and Buenaventura on the Pacific coast and lies on direct route
to Bogota’s main international airport.
Kuehne + Nagel’s new facility, which complies with the latest international
standard specifications, consists of 10,000 sqm of warehouse and
handling space and includes anti-seismic infrastructure, fireproof and
state-of-the-art communication, monitoring, security and control systems.
From the logistics centre, Kuehne + Nagel offers high quality integrated
supply chain management solutions and reinforces its leading position
in the local market by strengthening its presence in a rapidly developing
key industrial zone next to Colombia’s capital city.
The initiative is part of Kuehne + Nagel’s regional strategy to implement
a network of modern distribution centres in South and Central America,
serving a market that is constantly growing and requiring additional and
more sophisticated logistics services.
