Kuehne+Nagel opens temperature-controlled facility in Chicago
21,000 sq ft space accommodates storage climate needs ranging from +2°C to +25°C
Kuehne+Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics companies, announced the opening of its Chicago facility’s expansion with a new GxP compliant area.
"At what is now one of Kuehne+Nagel’s largest healthcare facilities globally, the expansion features 21,000 sq ft of temperature-controlled space with separate areas to support a range of climate requirements – from +2°C to +25°C – specifically designed for healthcare operations," says an official release.
“This investment allows our customers and future customers to further improve the quality of their temperature-controlled supply chain with end-to-end temperature handling in our facility,” says Greg Martin, Senior Vice President, Air Logistics, Kuehne+Nagel. “As we continue to expand our healthcare footprint across North America, we are committed to investing in next-level facilities for our healthcare customers who need a company to rely on for quality assurance in the storage process.”
The opening follows the company’s move from Elk Grove Village, IL to Bensenville, IL earlier this year, which doubled available warehouse space and allowed import and export to take place in one facility, increasing efficiency for operations spanning sea, air, road, and customs.
Healthcare is one of six primary growth areas in Kuehne+Nagel’s Roadmap 2026, a four-year strategic plan towards the company’s vision for 2030: becoming the most trusted supply chain partner supporting a sustainable future, the release added.
