Kuehne + Nagel has unveiled its first regional Logistics Control Centre (LCC) for Integrated Logistics in South & Central America.

Located in Bogota, the facility is K+N’s ninth LCC globally. Its other facilities are in North Carolina, Mexico City, Birmingham, Luxembourg, Wroclaw, Delhi, Singapore and Shanghai.

The company stated: “Following the growing demand for integrated logistics and requirements for lean and demand-driven supply chains in South & Central America, the LCC was developed to offer digital supply chain management in a shared environment. Based on data analytics and continuous improvement methodologies, the LCC will provide Kuehne + Nagel customers tailored solutions with focus on cost efficiency, reduction of supply chain complexity and increase of supply chain performance.”

K+N’s LCCs are designed to provide “control tower” services, essentially managing entire supply chains from a single location. Services include order fulfilment, transport management, inventory management, visibility & monitoring, freight settlement and request & deviation management.

Ingo Goldhammer, President of Kuehne + Nagel South & Central America: “This investment represents our commitment to the region and our customers. The LCC will especially benefit multinational corporations with complex international supply chains. We are pleased to further enhance our existing partnerships especially with our leading pharma, healthcare and beauty industry customers by an upgraded infrastructure and optimised set-up of services and customer-related teams.”
