January 20, 2020: Kuehne + Nagel is setting its path to further and accelerate growth in the Asia Pacific, after major acquisitions in the North American region last year, which included Worldwide Perishable Canada (WWP) and Jöbstl Group.
In order to target an even stronger role in logistics all over Asia, the company has decided to concentrate strengths and to combine its so far two Asian organisations into one strong region. With immediate effect, the new Asia Pacific region will be headquartered in Singapore. The two current regional managers Jens Drewes and Siew Loong Wong will jointly lead the ambitious development of Kuehne + Nagel in the Asia Pacific.
Joerg Wolle, chairman of the board of directors Kuehne + Nagel International AG said, “Kuehne + Nagel has shown great success all over the Asia Pacific in recent years and built up an already strong position in this remarkable region of the world. We strongly believe that the Asia Pacific will be the driver of global economic development in the years to come. The joint leadership of the region by two proven executives will prepare the ground for a new dimension of organic and inorganic growth of our networks to even better serve our customers."
