Kuehne+Nagel has opened an expanded pharma area at its facility in Chicago.

The Switzerland-headquartered forwarder’s new temperature-controlled unit measures 21,000 sq ft and can cater to products requiring storage at a temperature range of 2-25°C.

The expansion follows the forwarder’s move from Elk Grove Village to Bensenville earlier this year, which doubled available warehouse space and allowed import and export to take place in one facility.

Greg Martin, senior vice president, air logistics at Kuehne+Nagel, said: “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.

“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.”
