Kuehne + Nagel UAE has opened a new warehouse extension at the Dubai South Logistics District. The new facility, designed primarily for high-value goods, is spread over an area of 10,000m2, and features a single main chamber as a general storage area and a mezzanine chamber. The new building is also equipped with the latest warehousing technology and has 10 docking stations and one drive in door with a ramp for large and heavy items, such as those seen in the aerospace sector.
Dubai South, claimed to be the fastest growing free zone in the region, continues to attract small and large companies owing to its strategic location, state-of-the-art infrastructure and the innovative approaches that facilitate business setup.
Thorsten Pook, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel UAE and Oman, noted: “The extension of our warehouse campus in Dubai South Logistics District underlines our strong commitment to the UAE and the Middle East and to provide outstanding logistics services to our customers. We recognise the tremendous growth potential of the Middle East and situating our operations in Logistics District is the ideal choice to drive growth for our customers and significantly contribute to the efficiency of their value chain.”
With the opening of the new warehouse, Kuehne + Nagel has now extended its total UAE storage capacity to 41,000m2, to meet anticipated growing market demand over the next few years.
