Kuehne + Nagel has extended its logistics infrastructure in Greater Sydney, Australia, to meet the growing demand for end-to-end logistics solutions.

Placed in the quickly developing logistics hub area of Eastern Creek, the facility is strategically located within short distance to the intersection of Sydney’s major motorways.

At the opening ceremony Stephen Bali, the Mayor of Blacktown City said: “This development fits well with our vision for Eastern Creek to be a logistics hub for Sydney.”

Mayor Bali also highlighted the sustainability factors of the building at the ceremony. He said: “I would like to finish by congratulating you all. I understand the new facility is on track to achieve a 4 Star Green Star As-Built rating and I commend Kuehne + Nagel on their sustainable choices.”

Alfred Hofmann, Regional Manager, Kuehne + Nagel South Asia Pacific, said: “With the addition of this new facility Kuehne + Nagel is able to even better support its existing and future customers in optimising their supply chains. At the same time the investment strengthens our foothold in Australia.”

Based on a built-to-suit concept, the state-of-the-art logistics centre offers 20,000 square metres of warehousing space with eight loading docks and levellers.

Technical features include pick by voice technology and RF scanning which help to improve workflow processes, reduce time required to pick, pack and ship items and enable orders to be fulfilled faster.

With over 63,000 employees at more than 1000 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne + Nagel Group is one of the world's leading logistics companies. Its strong market position lies in the sea freight, air freight, contract logistics and overland businesses, with a clear focus on providing IT-based integrated logistics solutions.
