Shaping sustainable logistics together

Kuehne+Nagel new service partner for logistics at Messe Karlsruhe

Messe Karlsruhe will be working with Kuehne+Nagel as its logistics service partner from July 1, 2024. The company's comprehensive range of services, an integrated management system for permanent quality optimization, the digitalization of logistics processes and activities in the area of sustainability were particularly convincing in the tendering process.

"Several logistics-intensive trade fairs take place at our trade fair location, for example the NUFAM commercial vehicle trade fair or LEARNTEC, as well as guest trade fairs such as Paint Expo or the Winzer Service Messe. As an EMAS-validated company, we also took sustainability aspects into account when selecting our logistics partner. In Kuehne+Nagel, we have gained a high-performance partner with a wide-ranging portfolio," says Oliver Brück, authorized signatory and Director Guest Events, Services, Facility Management & Infrastructure.

Denis Gerlach, Vice President Germany at Kuehne+Nagel adds: "Our partnership with Messe Karlsruhe reflects our firm commitment to making a positive environmental impact while providing sustainable logistics solutions to our joint customers. Together, we are committed to environmentally friendly practices, including optimizing transport routes, using low-emission vehicles and efficient packaging solutions to minimize the carbon footprint. We look forward to further expanding this collaboration and shaping the future of sustainable logistics together."

The range of services includes transportation and storage on the exhibition grounds, services such as customs clearance and supplementary transport and logistics services. In addition to a trade fair office, which will be staffed all year round, Kuehne+Nagel will have a warehouse at its disposal on the exhibition grounds. Optimal logistical conditions, especially during set-up and dismantling, are also ensured by a designated truck parking area directly integrated into the exhibition grounds on the currently upgraded 80,000 square meter outdoor multifunctional area Peter-Gross-Bau Areal / P3 of Messe Karlsruhe.
