Global logistics company Kuehne+Nagel, a FEDA associate member, is expanding its healthcare contract logistics network in the United States with a new multi-client and Good Distribution Practice (GDP) compliant facility adjacent to Indianapolis International Airport.
The investment into the 166,000-square-foot healthcare site will support the growing need for distribution facilities that are able to meet strict quality, regulatory and temperature requirements. Kuehne+Nagel is positioning the necessary infrastructure within key locations, such as Indianapolis, to better enable nationwide distribution and ensure patient access to vital healthcare products such as diabetes products.
The site is part of a healthcare logistics campus designed to maximize the scalability, flexibility and reach of Kuehne+Nagel customers by integrating transportation and distribution management activities in the same facility. In addition, the site will be managed by Tier 1 warehouse management systems, automation and experienced personnel who understand specialized healthcare product requirements within a highly regulated environment.
“This latest investment underpins our commitment to healthcare logistics, which we recognize as a significant factor to our and our customer’s future success,” said Eduardo Razuk, senior vice president contract logistics Americas. “We are excited to invest intensely in infrastructure, resources and capabilities in Indianapolis and other key markets.”
