Kuehne + Nagel Establishes Office in Vladivostok, Russia

Moscow / Russia, April 25, 2013 - In view of the increasing demand for logistics services in the Far Eastern part of Russia, Kuehne + Nagel is establishing an office in Vladivostok.

Vladivostok is the largest Far Eastern sea port in Russia and a strategically important location for the handling of inbound and transit cargo. Additionally, the well developed transport infrastructure – seafreight, airfreight and railfreight – allows to serve local customers as well.

The office in Vladivostok will be managed by the set-up in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk where Kuehne + Nagel commenced its activities in 2002 to cater for the needs of customers from the oil & gas industry. Next to the office in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the company operates two more locations on Sakhalin, one in Nogliki in the northern part of the island, and a bonded/non bonded warehouse in Korsakov south of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Today, the company is a leading provider of specialised tailor-made solutions for the oil & gas industry in the area.

“Our new office in Vladivostok provides the opportunity to strengthen and streamline the operational processes and to offer new services such as a direct access to the Russian market from the Far East rather than via Europe,” says Perry Neumann, Managing Director Kuehne + Nagel Russia and Belarus. 

With over 63,000 employees at more than 1000 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne + Nagel Group is one of the world's leading logistics companies. Its strong market position lies in the seafreight, airfreight, contract logistics and overland businesses, with a clear focus on providing IT-based integrated logistics solutions.
