Kuehne+Nagel Unveils New El Paso Facility, Texas


Kuehne+Nagel announced the opening of a new facility in El Paso, Texas. The new, larger site covers 363,000 sq ft and consolidates four warehouses from across the border into one. As global companies invest more in Mexico due to the rising trend of nearshoring, Kuehne+Nagel is establishing this site to assist customers in redesigning their supply chain processes.

Strategically located in El Paso, Texas, the site will be used for moving goods north and southbound across the Mexico-United States border. The warehouse features enhanced security, modern offices, 54 dock doors, front and rear cross-dock capability, 125 truck yard spaces, and additional vertical racked storage locations.

By consolidating four warehouses under one roof, the company will enable control of all trailer traffic at one site. This move might also reduces the time needed to receive and offload trucks due to increased dock availability. The building offers customers an improved layout and cargo flow. Additionally, the site enhances customer interaction by housing all customer care teams in one location and providing new meeting room facilities.

“With this offering, we enhance our ability to support customers in overcoming logistics challenges presented by the global trend of nearshoring with more capacity and space as we move their valuable freight,” said John Levin, Regional Vice President for Central Area, Kuehne+Nagel U.S. “The state-of-the-art warehouse opening is a milestone for Kuehne+Nagel in North America as it reinforces our commitment to serving the cross-border market as part of the company’s growth strategy. This new, larger facility in El Paso, Texas increases our warehouse footprint, improves building efficiencies, and complements our freight forwarding services with final import and export services to and from Mexico.”
