Kuehne + Nagel has officially opened the doors to its Accra branch office, with emergency and relief logistics expected to be a major focus.
Operations started with delivering 150 40 foot containers of mosquito nets to Ghana’s Ministry of Health for IDA Foundation Aid & Relief.
The mosquito nets will be shipped from Denmark to Ghana, where they will be distributed to local health centres as part of a national campaign against malaria.
Kuehne + Nagel Ghana national manager, Jeffrey Peprah says: “Kuehne + Nagel Ghana is delighted to assist the IDA Foundation in accomplishing this humanitarian aid project and we look forward to creating a meaningful partnership to support the progress of the region in the coming years.”
Due to the geopolitical environment in the region, emergency and relief logistics is a major focus for Kuehne + Nagel Middle East and Africa, and it says the cooperation with IDA Foundation showcases Kuehne + Nagel’s experience to provide freight forwarding and tailor-made logistics services for a broad range of customers and industries.
Kuehne + Nagel also says the Accra branch is well positioned to provide cross-border forwarding and industry-specific logistics solutions to customers operating in West Africa, specifically Ghana and its neighbouring countries.
