Kuehne+Nagel expands US healthcare logistics network
08 / 09 / 2022
Kuehne+Nagel has expanded its healthcare contract logistics network in the US with a new facility adjacent to Indianapolis International Airport.
The investment into the 166,000 sq ft multi-client and GDP compliant healthcare site aims to support the growing need for distribution facilities that are able to meet strict quality, regulatory and temperature requirements.
The site is part of a healthcare logistics campus designed to maximise the scalability, flexibility and reach of Kuehne+Nagel customers by integrating transportation and distribution management activities in the same facility.
This new site will be managed by tier 1 warehouse management systems, automation, and experienced personnel who understand specialised healthcare product requirements within a highly regulated environment, said the company.
Kuehne+Nagel said it is positioning the necessary infrastructure within key locations, such as Indianapolis, to better enable nationwide distribution and ensure patient access to vital healthcare products such as diabetes products.
The logistics company’s expansion in Indianapolis comes on the heels of similar expansions in Memphis, Tennessee, where Kuehne+Nagel manages vaccines, and Southaven, Mississippi, where it manages medical devices.
Eduardo Razuck, senior vice president contract logistics Americas at Kuehne+Nagel, says: “This latest investment underpins our commitment to healthcare logistics, which we recognise as a significant factor to our and our customer’s future success. We are excited to invest intensely in infrastructure, resources and capabilities in Indianapolis and other key markets.”
