With a strategic location close to the expanded Panama Canal, Kuehne + Nagel´s newly opened facility will carry out reception, storage and distribution activities for the brands of the Unicomer Group, a store operator with more than 1,000 stores in 24 countries.

The operation at the new warehouse represents an important step for Kuehne + Nagel´s expansion of contract logistics services in Central America. Due to its access to diverse maritime routes and frequency of transport, the location within the Colon Free Zone, the second largest free trade zone in the world and the largest in the Western Hemisphere, brings logistics benefits to Kuehne + Nagel´s customers and will facilitate the access to new markets.

“We chose Kuehne + Nagel as our logistics provider due to its expertise in contract logistics and important presence in the region. On top of that, the warehouse location will also favor our business and competitiveness by its proximity to our main markets in Latin America, ensuring fast and cost efficient delivery to our stores”, said Mabel Pacheco, Corporate Trade Manager of the Unicomer Group.

Ricardo Rocha, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Central America & Caribbean, said: “We are pleased about the trust the Unicomer Group has placed in us and look forward to continuing this successful partnership by providing our innovative warehousing and distribution services. With the new facility in the Colon Free Zone, we are able to strengthen our position in a key market such as Panama, being an important hub for South & Central America as well as the Caribbean, by leveraging our end-to-end solutions offering.”
