The development of Kuehne + Nagel in Japan
Kuehne + Nagel established its Japanese organisation in Tokyo in 1982. This was closely followed by the opening of a second branch in Osaka in 1985, and today, the company operates across 10 different locations.
Between 2005 and 2009 the development of contract logistics and integrated logistics was accelerated due to the opening of 4 logistics centres in the Kanto & Kansai area.
Together with the introduction of industry-specific solutions such as marine logistics and expo & event logistics, this has confirmed Kuehne + Nagel’s commitment to further expanding its portfolio in the important Japanese market.
