Kuehne + Nagel Ghana in emergency and relief logistics for social enterprise
October 6, 2017: With the inauguration of Kuehne + Nagel Ghana, the branch office in Accra officially opened its doors. Operations have been successfully taken up, following the IDA Foundation Aid & Relief award to deliver 150 40 feet containers of mosquito nets to Ghana’s Ministry of Health.
Within the short time frame of one month, Kuehne + Nagel will ship the significant amount of mosquito nets from Denmark to Ghana, where they will be distributed to local health centres as part of a national campaign against malaria. Due to the geopolitical environment in the region, emergency and relief logistics is a major focus of Kuehne + Nagel Middle East and Africa.
“Kuehne + Nagel Ghana is delighted to assist the IDA Foundation in accomplishing this humanitarian aid project and we look forward to creating a meaningful partnership to support the progress of the region in the coming years,” says Jeffrey J.O.Peprah, National manager, Kuehne + Nagel Ghana.
With its strategic location, the Kuehne + Nagel office branch in Accra is well positioned to provide cross-border forwarding and industry-specific logistics solutions to customers operating in West Africa, specifically in Ghana and its neighbouring countries.
