Kuehne + Nagel is focusing on future growth in Asia-Pacific for the years to come.
“In order to target an even stronger role in logistics all over Asia, the company has decided to concentrate strengths and to combine its so far two Asian organisations into one strong region,” Kuehne + Nagel said in a statement.
With immediate effect, the new Asia Pacific region with about 10,000 professionals will be headquartered in Singapore
The two current regional managers Mr. Jens Drewes and Mr. Siew Loong Wong will jointly lead the ambitious development of Kuehne + Nagel in Asia Pacific.
This follows the company’s global success of integrating three major acquisitions in the North America region and the former three European regions into one Europe.
The leading logistics provider are embarking on accelerating growth in the Asia Pacific region.
Dr. Joerg Wolle, Chairman of the Board of Directors Kuehne + Nagel International AG said the business has already shown great success across the Asia Pacific region in recent years.
“Kuehne + Nagel has built up an already strong position in this remarkable region of the world,” Dr. Joerg said.
“We strongly believe that Asia Pacific will be the driver of the global economic development in the years to come,” he said.
“The joint leadership of the region by two proven executives will prepare the ground for a new dimension of organic and inorganic growth of our networks to even better serve our customers.”
