Kuehne+Nagel looking cool in New York


Kuehne+Nagel has extended its New York JFK terminal with a stand-alone 4,500sq ft (418sq m) stand-alone, GxP-compliant, temperature-controlled area and a 10,000sq ft (929sq m). extension to its ambient warehousing.

The new temperature-controlled facility offers two separate areas and can support requirements from +2°C to +25°C for healthcare or perishable cargo, and is GDP and IATA CEIV compliant. It forms part of Kuehne+Nagel’s own HealthChain certification.

It also has C-TPAT security certification including 24-hour CCTV surveillance.

Swiss-based Kuehne+Nagel said that the site would also improve airfreight handling by reducing the number of touch points.

The facility is also certified to Kuehne+Nagel’s EngineChain standards and can also handle batteries and finished vehicle.

Senior vice president, air Logistics for North America, Greg Martin, “I’m particularly proud of the investment we have made to further enhance the temperature-controlled supply chain with end-to-end temperature handling in our facility, as we continue to expand our healthcare footprint and support across North America.”

Kuehne+Nagel sees healthcare and semiconductors as growth areas over the next six years.
