Since 1890, when the business was founded in Bremen, Germany, by August Kuehne and Friedrich Nagel, Kuehne + Nagel has grown into one of the world’s leading logistics providers. Today, the Kuehne + Nagel Group has more than 1000 offices in over 100 countries, with approximately 63,000 employees. Our key business activities and market position are built on the company’s truly world class capabilities. Its strong market position lies in the seafreight, airfreight, contract logistics and overland businesses, with a clear focus on providing IT-based supply chain management services.
China, one of the world’s key economic powers, saw its dynamic development accelerate in 1979 as the country was gradually opened up to foreign investors. That same year, Kuehne + Nagel opened its first office in Beijing. In March 2004, the company was the first global logistics provider awarded a Class A Forwarder’s License – a milestone in the development of its activities. Since then, Kuehne + Nagel has been able to operate independently in the country and it has been directly providing customers with a full scope of integrated international forwarding and logistics services, while continuously extending its local network. Kuehne + Nagel, with its proven expertise and comprehensive portfolio of services today,
ranks among the leading logistics providers in China.
The company focuses on key industries, including automotive, high-tech, industrial goods and chemicals, pharmaceutical / healthcare, retail, and fast-moving consumer goods and durables. The company also provides specialised solutions for hotel and aviation logistics, perishables, beverage logistics, exhibitions and trade shows, aid and relief, oil and gas, and special projects. Kuehne + Nagel has around 3,000 professionals in China and will continue to strengthen its workforce as the market grows. The company’s Chinese specialists with their deep local market knowledge and foreign specialists with their wide international expertise complement one another perfectly.
