Dubai World Central (DWC) has announced the opening of Phase II of Kuehne + Nagel’s state-of-the-art logistics centre at DWC’s Logistics City.

Phase II’s addition of around 14,000m2 of space to the warehouse and mezzanine brings the logistics centre’s total covered area to 31,000m2.

The expansion project was recently awarded a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold rating by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

Andy Weber, president MEA & Central Asia, Kuehne + Nagel, said: “We take tremendous pride in having secured LEED Gold status for our Phase II expansion which we achieved through the hard work of our team.

“With our extended premises in Dubai World Central, we have reaffirmed our commitment to cater to the growing regional demand for integrated logistics services while underlining our confidence in DWC as the premier aviation and logistics hub in the Middle East.

“With Dubai’s successful hosting bid for Expo 2020, we look forward to capitalize on the logistics infrastructure of DWC to optimally support our customers.”

Kuehne + Nagel is the first international logistics provider to become fully operational in DWC in 2009. Phase I of its logistics facility consisted of around 17,000m2 warehouse space. The company also operates a modern 16,000m2 logistics terminal in the Jebel Ali Free Zone and has offices in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

Mohsen Ahmad, VP Logistics District, DWC, added: “As a strategic initiative of the Dubai Government, DWC plays a multi-faceted role in the overall development of the country. While it essentially serves as a hub for all aviation, logistics and business activities, we are keen on promoting the sustainability efforts of our partners. Kuehne + Nagel’s LEED-certified expansion is an exciting development and a benchmark for businesses operating at DWC.

“We will continue to support our residents to adopt and implement green initiatives over and above the provision of multimodal logistics capabilities, world-class technology and business infrastructure.”
