LOGISTICS provider Kuehne + Nagel has set a path for further and accelerated growth in Asia Pacific.

Targeting a stronger role in logistics across Asia, the company has decided to combine its two Asian organisations into one strong region.

With immediate effect, the new Asia Pacific region with about 10,000 professionals will be based in Singapore. The two current regional managers Jens Drewes and Siew Loong Wong will jointly lead the development of Kuehne + Nagel in the Asia Pacific.

Dr Joerg Wolle, chairman of the board of directors Kuehne + Nagel International said, “Kuehne + Nagel has shown great success all over Asia Pacific in the recent years and built up an already strong position in this remarkable region of the world”.

“We strongly believe that Asia Pacific will be the driver of the global economic development in the years to come,” Dr Wolle 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.”
