Kuehne+Nagel opens new facility in Texas

Global logistics company Kuehne+Nagel has announced the opening of a new facility in El Paso, Texas, US.

This new, larger site spans 33,730 m² and consolidates four warehouses from across the border into a single location. As global firms increase investments in Mexico due to the rising trend of nearshoring, Kuehne+Nagel is establishing this site to support customers in redesigning their supply chain processes.

Strategically located in El Paso, Texas, the facility will meet the growing needs of customers for northbound and southbound goods movement across the Mexico-United States border. The warehouse boasts enhanced security, modern offices, 54 dock doors, front and rear cross-dock capabilities, 125 truck yard spaces, and additional vertical racked storage locations.

By bringing four warehouses under one roof, Kuehne+Nagel aims to drive efficiencies for its customers by managing all trailer traffic in one site. This consolidation reduces the time required to receive and offload trucks, thanks to increased dock availability.

Moreover, the building offers an improved layout and better cargo flow for customers. Additionally, the site enhances customer interaction by housing all customer care teams in one location and providing new meeting room facilities.

“With this offering, we enhance our ability to support customers in overcoming logistics challenges presented by the global trend of nearshoring with more capacity and space as we move their valuable freight,” said John Levin, regional vice president for Central Area, for Kuehne+Nagel US.

The facility will open on 5 August 2024, creating approximately 145 job opportunities in the region.

"The state-of-the-art warehouse opening is a milestone for Kuehne+Nagel in North America as it reinforces our commitment to serving the cross-border as part of the company’s growth strategy. This new, larger facility in El Paso, Texas increases our warehouse footprint, improves building efficiencies, and complements our freight forwarding services with final import and export services into or out of Mexico," added John Levin.
