Kuehne+Nagel has announced the expansion of its healthcare contract logistics network in the United States with a new multi-client and GDP compliant facility adjacent to Indianapolis International Airport.
The investment into the 166,000 sq ft healthcare site aims to support the growing need for distribution facilities that are able to meet strict quality, regulatory and temperature requirements. Kuehne+Nagel is positioning the necessary infrastructure within key locations, such as Indianapolis, in an attempt to better enable nationwide distribution and ensure patient access to vital healthcare products such as diabetes products.
The site is part of a healthcare logistics campus designed to maximize the scalability, flexibility and reach of Kuehne+Nagel customers by integrating transportation and distribution management activities in the same facility. Kuehne+Nagel adds that the site will be managed by tier 1 warehouse management systems, automation, and experienced personnel who understand specialized healthcare product requirements within a highly regulated environment.
Kuehne+Nagel’s expansion in Indianapolis comes on the heels of similar expansions in Memphis (TN), where Kuehne+Nagel manages vaccines, and Southaven (MS), where it manages medical devices.
