Published: Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Forwarder Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) is expanding its European contract logistics footprint with the opening of a fulfilment center in Contern, Luxembourg.

The expansion reaffirms Luxembourg as a strategic location for K+N in the center of Europe, with easy access to the continent’s most important consumer markets.

K+N meets the complex and dynamic supply chain needs of its customers through integrated value-added solutions – especially in the area of e-commerce fulfilment. This includes inventory management, picking, packing and shipping orders, managing returns, as well as value-added services.

K+N’s honorary chairman, Klaus-Michael Kühne, said: “Following a promising start 51 years ago, K+N has been growing its multi-modal logistics solutions in Luxembourg continually and now further strengthens its function as a strategic contract logistics hub in Europe.

“This also underlines our confidence in the business location and the fruitful collaboration with the government of Luxembourg and the local authorities of Contern.”

Tobias Jerschke, managing director of K+N BeLux, added: “The new fulfilment center perfectly complements our existing e-commerce hub in Belgium, securing fast end-to-end lead times.

“At the same time, the warehouse roofs perfectly lend themselves to the biggest photovoltaic installation to date by Enovos – Luxembourg’s main energy supplier.

“Supporting the green energy transition in the country underlines K+N’s strong commitment to sustainability as part of its ambitious Net Zero Carbon targets.”
