Kuehne + Nagel opens Chongqing office

July 9 - Kuehne + Nagel has opened a new branch office in Chongqing in central China and confirmed that it will be involved in the management of project cargoes with inquiries being organised in close coordination with the company's project competence cen

The new office brings the number of Kuehne + Nagel locations in China to 39. 

Chongqing, China's largest and most populous metropolitan region, is a hub of automotive and industrial manufacturing and a growing consumer market and had previously been served through the company's office in Chengdu.

According to Kuehne + Nagel, Chongqing enjoys continuous investment from industry and trade, which in turn leads to ever-increasing demand for quality logistics services. From the new premises, Kuehne + Nagel will focus on providing international sea and air logistics services. In addition, it will offer specialised solutions to support the automotive and industrial goods and chemicals sectors, two of the main pillars of the city's economic development, as well as project forwarding.

The company is following the market trend to increasingly explore opportunities made possible by moving inland in China.
