Own subsidiary strengthens Kuehne + Nagel's foothold in Belarus
"With its geographical position between Europe, Russia, Kazakhstan and China, Belarus is a strategically important country in which we see an interesting potential," commented Bob Mihok, Kuehne + Nagel's Regional Manager Eastern Europe. "Our own subsidiary will enable us to better integrate the country into our worldwide network and to accelerate our strategic expansion in Eastern Europe. It will also help to leverage our globally standardised processes and to offer our customers the full range of our integrated logistics service portfolio."
Kuehne + Nagel has been active in Belarus since 1996 with representative offices in Minsk and in Brest and is providing services to an increasing number of customers, particularly from the automotive, pharmaceutical, chemical, retail, wood production and power engineering industries. Apart from FTL, LTL and weekly groupage services between Belarus, Europe, Russia and Kazakhstan, Kuehne + Nagel also offers global airfreight transportation through Minsk airport as well as LCL and FCL services via the ports of Klaipeda and Riga.
Elena Dushnjak, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Belarus, says: "Belarus is an attractive region for large international companies from Europe and Asia doing business in Eastern Europe. Our integrated logistics services combined with our proven knowledge of the local market can support them in improving supply chain efficiency and reliability."
