Kuehne+Nagel launches new US healthcare facility

Global logistics provider, Kuehne+Nagel, has announced the expansion of its healthcare contract logistics network in the US with a new facility adjacent to the Indianapolis International Airport.

The investment into the 166,000 square foot healthcare site will support the growing need for distribution facilities that are able to meet strict quality, regulatory and temperature requirements.

Kuehne+Nagel is positioning the necessary infrastructure within key locations – such as Indianapolis – to better enable nationwide distribution and ensure patient access to vital healthcare products.

The Indianapolis site is part of a healthcare logistics campus designed to maximise the scalability, flexibility and reach of Kuehne+Nagel’s customers by integrating transportation and distribution management activities in the same facility.

In addition, the site will be managed by tier one warehouse management systems, automation and experienced personnel who understand specialised healthcare product requirements with a highly regulated environment.

Kuehne+Nagel Senior Vice President Contract Logistics Americas, Eduardo Razuck, said the new facility will contribute to the success of its customers.

“This latest investment underpins our commitment to healthcare logistics, which we recognise as a significant factor to our and our customer’s future success,” he said.

“We are excited to invest intensely in infrastructure, resources and capabilities in Indianapolis and other key markets.”

Kuehne+Nagel’s expansion in Indianapolis follows similar expansions in Memphis, Tennessee, where the company manages vaccines, and Southaven, Mississippi, where it manages medical devices.
