Logistics Middle East’s 25 most powerful CEOs-Werner Kleymann
As a major player in the global logistics industry, Kuehne + Nagel has highlighted the Middle East as a key market for its future development, attracted by the diversification of local economies and liberalisation of trade across the region.
To capitalise on this situation, the company’s Middle East director, Werner Kleymann, has been instrumental in launching a long-term expansion strategy, which includes a large-scale warehouse in Dubai Logistics City to compliment Kuehne + Nagel’s existing facility in Jebel Ali.
Werner’s vision is likely to pay rich dividends and he remains loyal to DLC, despite a series of project delays. The executive is also keen to capitalise on market growth in Saudi Arabia and finalised a deal for Kuehne + Nagel to become the first global logistics provider to operate a wholly-owned subsidiary in the Kingdom, which will undoubtedly cement the firm’s regional market share in coming years.
