Kuehne+Nagel opens new air logistics hub in France

Kuehne+Nagel France has inaugurated a new air logistics hub at the heart of Cargo City at the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.

The hub has a capacity to handle 300 air freight pallets a week. Its processing surface is 2.5 times larger than the previous space and has direct access to runways.

Moreover, Kuehne+Nagel continues to increase its healthcare cargo capacities in Paris by dedicating 4,500 m² to cold rooms and temperature-controlled zones.

The healthcare area is GDP and CEIV-compliant as part of Kuehne+Nagel’s HealthChain certification, ensuring optimal conditions for storing and transporting sensitive goods.

The hub also focuses on R&D and personalised medicine, supported by QuickSTAT, a Kuehne+Nagel company with expertise in personalised supply chain planning.

Heiko Schuhmacher, regional head of Air Logistics Europe, commented, "The inauguration of the new hub, located at one of Europe’s best-connected airports, reinforces Kuehne+Nagel's leading position in air logistics and strong ambition on our healthcare focus, as part of our Roadmap 2026."
