Kuehne + Nagel in Peru and the Andean Cluster
Kuehne + Nagel Peru is part of our Andean cluster, which also includes Colombia (where our Andean headquarter is located), Ecuador and Venezuela. All in all, the Kuehne + Nagel's Andean cluster has 17 offices and 8 distribution centers with more than 1,350 logistics experts.
Kuehne + Nagel Peru itself has more than 350 professionals in three offices located in the area of Lima, the capital city with the by far most important cargo seaport Callao. As Peru's economy is thriving, huge infrastructure projects are about to be realised, such as Lima's metro and the South American Transcontinental Railway, which will connect east- and westcoast, serving as the "South American Silk Road". These projects create prosperous opportunities für Austrian businesses, which may deliver technical know-how as well as machinery. For such purposes, The Kuehne + Nagel Andean Cluster ensures reliable support with its huge project logistics know-how.
Other flourishing sectors are mining, energy and the so-called "superfoods" (chia, quinoa, curcuma etc.). Further business opportunities may derive from governmental investments in the Peruvian drinking water and canal system.
What also makes Peru an interesting export market, are important trade agreements, such as the CPTPP (former Trans-Pacific Partnership, TPP) or the EU-Colombia-Peru-Ecuador TA. Furthermore, the Peruvian government set up a package of measures to ease the bureaucracy in foreign trade and to reduce customs fees.
Altogether, the service portfolio of the Kuehne + Nagel Andean cluster embraces seafreight, airfreight, overland, integrated and contract logistics as well as project logistics, perishables, cargo insurance and customs clearance, where especially our highly experienced Team in Venezuela should be highlighted.
