Kuehne+Nagel France has opened a new air logistics hub at the heart of Cargo City at the Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport. With this new location, the third-party logistics (3PL) provider increases its global air freight capacities and strengthens its healthcare logistics solutions in the region.

The hub has a capacity to handle 300 air freight pallets a week. Its processing surface is reportedly 2.5 times larger than the previous space, with direct access to runways.

Kuehne+Nagel continues to increase its healthcare cargo capacities in Paris by dedicating over 48,000 square feet to cold rooms and temperature-controlled zones. The healthcare area is good distribution practice (GDP) and CEIV-compliant as part of Kuehne+Nagel’s HealthChain certification, helping to provide optimal conditions for storing and transporting sensitive goods. The hub also focuses on R&D and personalized medicine.

In terms of sustainability, the hub is equipped with 1,332 photovoltaic solar panels placed on the roof, saving approximately 26.4 tons of CO2 per year.
