Schindellegi, CH – WEBWIRE
  • Enhancement of existing facilities into two dedicated fulfilment centres with a total space of 15,000 sqm
  • Addressing the growing need for animal healthcare in Greater China
  • Expanding healthcare logistics presence in the region

Kuehne+Nagel has opened two dedicated fulfilment centres for Elanco, a leading animal healthcare company, in Chengdu, West China. The new facilities now comprise a 3,000 sqm manufacturing warehouse and a 12,000 sqm distribution centre for finished products, increasing the total space in surface and storage capacity through optimised racking systems.

Both facilities fully comply with the regulatory healthcare requirements and are equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure to support efficient operations while contributing to reducing carbon emissions through electric warehouse equipment, LED lighting and minimised paper processes. To streamline the process whilst satisfying the most stringent standards on healthcare products administration, a state-of-the-art Warehouse Management System and Computerised Systems Validation have been implemented for this project.

Marcello Ferrari, Vice President Global Head Customer Development Healthcare, Contract Logistics for Kuehne+Nagel said: “Our partnership with Elanco in China builds upon our existing collaborations in India and Mexico and highlights our commitment to the animal healthcare industry globally. As an animal healthcare customer, Elanco relies on the highest quality standards. With our HealthChain label, we ensure that our customers’ products are in the best hands across our entire network. Gaining our customers’ trust is a core element of our strategic Roadmap 2026.”

“China is already the second largest market for Elanco, next to the United States, our home market. Thanks to Kuehne+Nagel, we managed to consolidate our existing facilities and upgrade our supply chain operation to the next level. We are looking forward to seizing the growth opportunities in China’s fast-growing animal healthcare market with Kuehne+Nagel as our indispensable logistics partner,” said Dylan Lu, Vice President of Elanco (Greater China).
