May 1 - Kuehne + Nagel has established a new branch in Aberdeen, UK, that specialises in logistics services for the oil and gas industry.

The 11,000 sq m facility was opened during March 2017 and will offer freight forwarding and supply chain services for the oil and gas business, as well as core seafreight, airfreight and overland services.
Kuehne + Nagel said the facility, which is located close to Aberdeen Airport and Aberdeen Harbour, would provide various other services, such as on-site export packing; subcontracted services like container loading and the North Sea Link trailer service will now be in-house, providing full management control.
"Complex logistics tasks for the oil and gas industry demand precisely tailored solutions. Here our new Aberdeen branch has a crucial role to play. Our customers will benefit from enhanced services, as we strengthen our global oil and gas network with a dedicated European hub," said Marcus Bennett, national manager of Kuehne + Nagel UK.
