Kuehne + Nagel opens dedicated animal health space in China

Kuehne + Nagel is expanding into the area of animal healthcare logistics, addressing a growing need in greater China.

The global transport company has partnered with Elanco Animal Health, an American animal pharmaceutical company, to open two dedicated fulfilment centres in Chengdu, West China.

The new facilities comprise a 3,000-square-metre manufacturing warehouse and a 12,000-square-metre distribution centre for finished products.

“As an animal healthcare customer, Elanco relies on the highest quality standards,” said Marcello Ferrari, Global Vice President Customer Development Healthcare and Contract Logistics.

“With our HealthChain label, we ensure that our customers’ trust is a core element of our strategic Roadmap 2026.”

To streamline the process and satisfy the stringent standards on healthcare products administration, Kuehne + Nagel has implemented a state-of-the-art warehouse management system and computerised validation program for the project.

Dylan Lu, Vice President of Elanco in China, said China is the second largest market for Elanco, after the United States.

“Thanks to Kuehne + Nagel, we managed to consolidate our existing facilities and upgrade our supply chain operation to the next level.”
