The development of Kuehne + Nagel in Italy
Italy was one of the first European countries where Kuehne + Nagel founded a subsidiary in 1964, establishing overland activities to and from Germany as well as Middle East traffic. At the beginning the Italian subsidiary employed 15 people – today, more than 2,000 people are working across 30 locations. Last year, the company was proud to celebrate 50 years of success in the country.
Kuehne + Nagel Italy has grown considerably over the past five decades, diversifying its activities from sea and airfreight to project business and contract logistics.
In 2006 when the Kuehne + Nagel Group took the decision to acquire ACR Logistics; a company offering contract logistics and supply chain management solutions within certain key European markets, Italy benefited from this move. The ACR organisation was successfully integrated into the Kuehne + Nagel network and thereby strengthened the company’s contract logistics offering to the Italian market significantly. Kuehne + Nagel Italy now manages 600,000 sqm of warehouse space.
