Kuehne+Nagel opens new offices in Africa

The global transport and logistics company Kuehne+Nagel has expanded its network of offices in Africa, which are managed and supported by a control tower in Durban, South Africa.

The regional control tower serves as a single point of contact to an integrated network across the continent and allows for complete visibility, including remote locations, while ensuring Kuehne+Nagel's global service standards and supervising data quality.

"With this expansion, Kuehne+Nagel offers African manufacturers specialised and industry-specific solutions to meet soaring demand in markets such as pharma and healthcare, perishables, emergency & relief and project logistics," noted a company's representative.

The Swiss company has had an active presence in Africa for almost seven decades, after opening its first office in Johannesburg in 1954.

The expanded Africa network is fully vetted and audited by an external global auditing company to ensure ongoing adherence to compliance and ethical standards.

It provides the full range of international services including air, sea, road and contract logistics to address the demands of the African continent.

"Africa is blessed with natural resources and a young entrepreneurial population. Now is the time to unlock this potential and create growing, thriving economies," said Lee I’Ons, president of Kuehne+Nagel Middle East and Africa, who went on to add, "With the new control tower in Durban, we are ready to address this great African opportunity,”

With this expansion, Kuehne+Nagel will be represented in 18 African countries, including South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Egypt, Angola, Namibia, Madagascar, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mozambique, Mauritius, Botswana, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Rwanda.

Kuehne+Nagel has also unveiled plans to increase its footprint with a second expansion on the continent, until the end of the first quarter of 2022.
