Kuehne+Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers in end-to-end logistics, has come a long way since its foundation in 1890. What started as a local sea logistics forwarder between the German towns of Bremen and Hamburg has gradually grown into a worldwide transport and logistics group active in sea, air, road and contract logistics, with a clear focus on integrated solutions.
Fast forward to 2021 and the Kuehne+Nagel Group has some 1,395 offices in over 100 countries serving over 400,000 customers. In Flanders, the company employs more than 1,000 employees at various sites, most of which are located in the province of Antwerp (Antwerp, Kontich, Mechelen, Geel and Eindhout). In addition, the provinces of Limburg (Tessenderlo, Wellen), Flemish Brabant (Machelen, Kampenhout) and West Flanders (Ostend) have their fair share of Kuehne+Nagel sites as well.
According to Tobias Jerschke, Kuehne+Nagel’s entrepreneurial culture and future-ready ownership structure have the advantage of being able to respond immediately to market opportunities and client needs. “Our short-term agility and strategic long-term planning are essential assets in satisfying the needs of our customers.”
