Logistics firm Kuehne + Nagel is heading to the industrial park in Dubnica nad Váhom (Trenčín Region). It will provide comprehensive logistics services for the Považský Cukor sugar mill, a member of the Nordzucker Group, the TASR newswire reported.

Kuehne + Nagel has taken over warehouse premises with a total area of 10,000 square metres.

“We’ll focus on providing operational excellence to our client so that it can serve its customers even better,” said Radislav Radoslav Miko, national manager at Kuehne + Nagel, as quoted by TASR. “The new contract is a result of our growth strategy in the area of contractual logistics and a very important milestone in strengthening the relationship between Kuehne + Nagel and Považský Cukor.”

The agreement between the two parties emerged from Nordzucker’s need to optimise its warehouse network in the region and to centralise distribution channels for retail customers into a single distribution centre, TASR wrote.
