Kuehne + Nagel expands its pharma hub in Belgium

Enlarged Geel distribution centre located in strong pharma cluster in Belgium.

Kuehne + Nagel has inaugurated its enlarged pharma distribution centre in Geel, making it one of its largest within the global KN PharmaChain network.

The new facility, that covers a total area of 22,000 sq m (plus another 10,000 sq m of extension space), will be offering standardised and compliant end-to-end logistics solutions and is bound to play an important role for its customers in search of pharma and healthcare supply chain solutions.

The pharma hub is a multi-modal, temperature-controlled forwarding and warehousing service, offering two cold chambers to handle varying temperature requirements and is now part of KN PharmaChain’s global network, encompassing around 220 operations.

Tobias Jerschke, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel BeLux said, Kuehne + Nagel is “leveraging [its] distribution network, [to] make sure that hospitals, pharmacies, doctors and patients are supplied in full and on time”.

It is in close proximity to the Brussels and Liège airports and with connections to its other 15 main EuropeanKN PharmaChain locations.

In addition to the Geel pharma hub, Kuehne + Nagel is currently investing in a 15,000 sq m airside pharma facility at the Brussels cargo airport (BruCargo), due to open in the second half of 2020.
