Kuehne+Nagel opens air logistics hub at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris


The hub has a capacity to handle 300 air freight pallets a week. Its processing surface is 2.5 times larger than the previous space and has direct access to runways. With over 320 destinations worldwide and a TAPA-FSR A security certification, the new air logistics hub facilitates access to new markets in high-tech, luxury, aerospace, industrial and automotive.

Kuehne+Nagel continues to increase its healthcare cargo capacities in Paris by dedicating 4,500 m sq to cold rooms and temperature-controlled zones. The healthcare area is GDP and CEIV-compliant as part of Kuehne+Nagel’s HealthChain certification, ensuring optimal conditions for storing and transporting sensitive goods. The hub also focuses on R&D and personalised medicine, supported by QuickSTAT, a Kuehne+Nagel company with expertise in personalised supply chain planning.

The new hub has been awarded with BREEAM Excellent certification, attesting to its energy efficiency and reduced carbon footprint. In addition, the hub is equipped with 1,332 photovoltaic solar panels placed on the roof, saving approximately 26.4 tons of CO2 per year.

“The inauguration of the new hub, located at one of Europe’s best-connected airports, reinforces Kuehne+Nagel’s leading position in air logistics and strong ambition on our healthcare focus, as part of our Roadmap 2026,” said Heiko Schuhmacher, Regional Head of Air Logistics Europe
