Kuehne+Nagel expands healthcare footprint in North America
This new fulfilment center will be part of the company's expanding healthcare services portfolio, allowing clients to focus on what matters most - the patients.
Kuehne+Nagel, a global logistics company, has announced plans for a new contract logistics fulfilment center on the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport premises. The 400,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art fulfilment center, located about three miles from the terminals, symbolises the company's ongoing commitment to investing in the healthcare sector by servicing various clients.
Kuehne+Nagel's partners can be assured that fulfilment center operations are safe and efficient thanks to this completely pharma-grade compliant, secure, high-tech location. This contains features such as four cold chambers, which can store items within the various temperature ranges required by the healthcare business, including frozen ones, to suit the complicated storage demands of clients in the healthcare and pharmaceutical professions.
"This move represents an important milestone for Kuehne+Nagel’s Contract Logistics business in North America and reinforces the company’s global commitment to the healthcare business as part of the company’s Roadmap 2026," said Eduardo Razuck, Senior Vice President, Contract Logistics Americas for Kuehne+Nagel. "The investment in a new distribution center in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is the latest step in growing our ever-expanding network focused on supporting our healthcare and pharmaceutical customers."
This new fulfilment center will be part of the company's expanding healthcare services portfolio, allowing clients to focus on what matters most - the patients. The facility was launched on April 1 and will create around 200 new jobs in the region.
"This fulfillment center will support our mission to bring product integrity to the next level for our healthcare customers that require premium services for moving their products," said Marcello Ferrari, Vice President Global Head Customer Development Healthcare, Contract Logistics for Kuehne+Nagel. "Our focus is on the patient, and with ease of access to the significant uplift capacity at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, we are able to better serve not just our customers, but also patients across the country who depend on these products."
