Metso Minerals, Finnish supplier of construction and mining technology and services, has awarded Kuehne + Nagel a contract to run its new distribution centre in Shanghai.
Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for the planning, implementation and management of the facility. It will also provide value-added services, such as batch management, picking and packing, and container loading for seafreight exports.
