Kuehne + Nagel has extended its European overland cross dock platform in Contern, and integrated telematics data of its key providers – strengthening the company’s service for the pharmaceutical industry.
The platform in Contern is part of the company’s PharmaChain, a multi-modal logistics solution for temperature-controlled door-to-door transport.
“Industry specific services for customers from the pharma and healthcare industry mark a key factor of Kuehne + Nagel’s success story in overland business,” said Uwe Hött, senior vice president overland Europe at Kuehne + Nagel “The investment into our Luxembourg pharma platform and the integration of telematics data of qualified key transport partners contribute significantly towards our overall strategy for the pharma industry with a special focus on temperature controlled transport for both FTL and LTL.
“The extension of the Contern facility will enhance providing industry leading services with increased capacity for our customers.“
According to the third party logistics provider, the new platform increases the capacity for loading and unloading pharmaceutical products under temperature controlled warehousing conditions and in a completely closed environment.
