Kuehne + Nagel opens new logistics facility at the Siberia industrial complex near Bogota
Located seven kilometres from Bogota, the Siberia's industrial complex includes an industrial park, a "dry port" as well as business and logistics centres. The location has access to the main highways connecting major cities such as Medellin and Cali as well as the seaports of Cartagena on the Atlantic and Buenaventura on the Pacific coast and lies on direct route to Bogota's main international airport.
Kuehne + Nagel's new facility, which complies with the latest international standard specifications, consists of 10,000 sqm of warehouse and handling space and includes antiseismic infrastructure, fireproof and stateoftheart communication, monitoring, security and control systems.
From the logistics centre, Kuehne + Nagel offers high quality integrated supply chain management solutions and reinforces its leading position in the local market by strengthening its presence in a rapidly developing key industrial zone next to Colombia's capital city.
The initiative is part of Kuehne + Nagel's regional strategy to implement a network of modern distribution centres in South and Central America, serving a market that is constantly growing and requiring additional and more sophisticated logistics services.
