KUEHNE + NAGEL has opened its first regional logistics control centre (LCC) for integrated logistics in Bogota, Colombia to expand its offering of end-to-end solutions in South and Central America from a single hub.
The company said the LCC was developed to offer digital supply chain management in a shared environment amid growing demand for integrated logistics and requirements for lean and demand-driven supply chains in South and Central America.
Based on data analytics and continuous improvement methodologies, the LCC will provide Kuehne + Nagel customers tailored solutions with a focus on cost efficiency, reduction of supply chain complexity and increase of supply chain performance.
The new LCC is fully connected to its global LCC network in terms of standard processes and leading technology.
'The LCC will especially benefit multinational corporations with complex international supply chains,' said Kuehne + Nagel South and Central America president Ingo Goldhammer.
'We are pleased to further enhance our existing partnerships especially with our leading pharma, healthcare and beauty industry customers by an upgraded infrastructure and optimised set-up of services and customer-related teams.'
