Kuehne + Nagel said it opened a new distribution center near Riga in Latvia.
The logistics provider said the new DC will strengthen its position in the contract logistics market in the Baltic region by enabling it to expand its portfolio of integrated supply chain management solutions.
The building is in Sauriesi in close proximity to Riga, the geographic central point of the region with excellent airport and road connections, and will also accommodate the new head office of the national organization in Latvia.
In its first construction phase the state-of-the-art facility provides 150,000 square feet of warehousing space, including a special part dedicated to crossdocking activities, as well as modern offices.
A further extension of up to 430,000 square feet on the same site will be possible. The facility is equipped with enhanced security standards in order to store high value goods.
